The newest version of the KRISS everyone is familiar with is getting a makeover. This carbine has a new buttstock, foregrip and barrel shroud.
There are also changes to the operating controls. Rather than the old method of releasing the bolt it’s been moved from the left side to an ambidextrous position at the top of the magwell. This will be a wide push button that can be operated by either hand. KRISS has also changed the charging handle from the left side front to a lever to a lever that operates vertically from the main receiver. Rack the charging handle by pulling down and releasing. This control can also be moved to the right side of the carbine if the user is a left-handed shooter. There are also a few cosmetic changes. KRISS done a good job making this carbine as left hand friendly as possible.
Now for the real news. This carbine will be available in 45 ACP initially then a 40 S&W caliber followed by a 9MM version.
By the way you’ll note the one in the pictures looks rather rough. It was pretty badly treated in shipping. Not to worry the new ones won’t look like it’s been run over by a car.
