Vector-SBR-ENHANCED_pl

KRISS debuted their new Enhanced Series at the 2014 SHOT Show. Their new Enhanced Vector CRB and SBR models feature an M4 stock adapter along with a Magpul UBR stock and a set of Magpul MBUS flip-up sights. They’re extected to ship around Q2 of 2014 with a MSRP of $1,995. Check out Kriss-USA.com for more info.

From their press release

The Magpul stock and MBUS sights give the Vector a similar feel to the ubiquitous AR-15. The stock adaptor, which makes the attachment of the UBR stock possible, will be available for sale separately and allows for a new avenue of customization for the Vector. Magpul MBUS Sights equipped on the Enhanced Series were designed specifically to match the Vector’s unique shape.

According to KRISS USA Marketing Manager Tim Seargeant, the Enhanced Series will feel familiar to more shooters, making it easier to adapt to the Vector’s futuristic design, and is now more customizable.

“The KRISS Super V technology inside the Vector is designed to enhance shooting performance by mitigating recoil forces. Magpul products aim to enhance shooting performance through external upgrades. The Vector with Magpul accessories is a great pairing.” Seargeant adds.

    “Enhanced”

    How about chambering it in a caliber that is more recent than the First World War?

    • nester7929

      I’m guessing the recoil reduction system is much more effective with a .45 than it would be with other pistol calibers. At least I suspect that’s why they only offer it in .45.

      Like 9mm? Oh wait…

    • Mark

      id love a 5.56 vector. please.

      • LCON

        The V recoil system is not suited to a larger round unless You don’t mind it being a Mounted machine gun.

    • Hunter57dor

      I can has .50 AE?

    • Christopher

      Well there was supposed to be a 10mm version. One wonders how the system would handle .45 Super, .357 SIG or 5.7×28. 357 SIG would give them a lot of potential contracts if they can make it.

  • 101nomad

    If only I could think of a use for it. Legal, that is. Having choices is wonderful.

  • ColaBox

    I have been hoping for this day ever since the SHOT Show coverage a month or so back.

  • Jefe

    How about a .460 Rowland conversion?

  • Andrew

    Big heavy stock on a PDR. Wut da hell?!

  • Andrew

    That stock is almost as big & heavy as the gun itself. I mean, why don’t you go ahead and throw a Magpul PRS on an MP5 while you’re at it?

    • SP mclaughlin

      I think you could, as there is a G3 stock adapter for the PRS-2 stock.

  • Daniel Prickett

    I love my kriss. Bought the pistol with the intention of sbr’ing it. I like the minimalist stock they already have. I have a ubr on my 308 and it’s a great, albeit heavy, stock but doubt I’d like it on the kriss. Now if they’d do an ace socom style stock that is something I’d buy.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    The author and I have different meanings of the word “Enhanced” it seems.

    I follow a few simple rules in life. One is that if it’s not an AR, it doesn’t get an AR stock.

  • schizuki

    An AR stock on anything but an AR looks like a prosthetic device.

  • wetcorps

    And I thought the Kriss couldn’t get uglier :D

  • Jay1975

    My guess is, they can’t sell enough of these to make much of a profit. Years ago they said these would come out in different calibers like 40 S&W, 9MM and even 5.56. Instead we get an AR stock?

    • Nicholas C

      As a avid KRISS Vector fan, I have learned not to get my hopes up with products that they show at SHOT.

      They showed a Shotgun, the KARD Pistol, and last year the K10. Now granted there are other issues to consider. ATF and other ruling bodies may delay them. Just look at what they have produced. One product in select fire and a semi auto version. Regardless of Carbine, sbr or SDP pistol they are the same product. And yet it took a considerable amount of time for a stockless SBR to be released as a pistol.

  • Nicholas C

    One major downside to this is that it cannot fold.

    Also they are a bit behind. I already had an AR stock adapter 3D printed back in Jan 2012. But due to lack of funds and computer skills it was only a proof of concept. Then last June I found an easier method of attaching an AR stock to my Vector. I have an idea how I can make this still folding.

    • wetcorps

      Wait, the Enhanced Vector cannot fold? Lol this is sillier than I thought.

    • Juice

      Is that RIS photoshopped?

      • Nicholas C

        Nope. I cut a first gen MI SS free float and screwed it into the lower receiver mounting points for the stock side rails.

        You can see it here.

      • BryanS

        I’ll vouch for Nick’s no nonsense approach to chopping and carving firearms to get what he needs done (in full compliance with the law of course)

  • Chris

    Two Words: Sig Brace

    • Nicholas C

      The problem is that I think the Sig Brace only works on pistol buffer tubes.The KRISS stock adapter looks like a single piece. So I dont think the brace will work with a regular style buffer tube.

      • firebert

        Unless the UBR is the only compatible stock the buffer tube should be removable. I say this because the UBR use a proprietary buffer tube which is different from the standard milspec m4 6 position buffer tube.

  • firebert

    The MFT Minimalist stock would probably be the best looking stock for this application
