    There has been some real innovation in firearms in recent years….I wonder will we ever see the Kriss system applied to rifle systems (shotguns, full power rifle cartridges and so on) they were developing them but so far I haven’t seen a prototype just CAD drawings

        Wow!…….M41a Pulse rifle

        Actually this is an old prototype for the KRISS Vector Carbine.

      The Russians are playing with counter-recoiling pistons, seems to work well enough:

        Ah yes, the Akaban. The only firearm with a pulley inside.

        The AEK 971, and the AK 107, wonder how their civilian Saiga mk107 is going the sad thing is Il never see it…(semi autos are heavily restricted in Ireland)

    Where’s the Vector 9mm conversion kit? 9mm carbine?

      Where’s the Vector 9̶m̶m̶ 10mm conversion kit? 9̶m̶m̶ 10mm carbine?

        Not in the near forseeable future. They are still working on a 22LR version and the K10 is going slow. The K10 is their platform for caliber change. The way it was designed allows for the user to change calibers without needing a gunsmith. At least this was the plan told to me by one of the KRISS ARMS Reps last year at SHOT SHOW.

    Does the Kriss system make a difference in semi-autos? It gets high acclaims in the full-auto world, but I am wondering what kind of benefit it gives as a semi-auto weapon vs a non-Kriss semi-auto carbine? Thank you for anyone answering this and or pointing me to some links.

      I have shot my Vector over 4k rds. I was fortunate to try a small variety of 45 ACP carbines. Thompson (full auto), Grease Gun (Full Auto), and a HK UMP (semi auto).

      I did not really notice it helping that much in semi auto guns. I do find that the Vector points great and really easy to get back on target compared to other pistol caliber carbines that I have shot. Hope that helps.

      I shot both SA and FA SBRs, probably 4-500 rounds FA and 200 SA and while fun to shoot, the extra cost for this .45 carbine just didn’t translate into sufficient value for me with the SA version. On the FA version, I saw the value instantly and you get great ROI. Maybe there is a value there in competition shooting but as I don’t and never have shot competitively, I can’t comment on that.

    Is it me or does the Sphinx bare a striking resemblance to the CZ P-07/09 family of handguns.
