KRISS Vector Modular Rail handguard

The Modular Rail Handguard for the Kriss Vector is now available, in stock.

I wish I had a Kriss Vector, just as a “fun gun” for my collection and still my curiosity.

 

The KRISS Vector MK1 Modular Rail features female threading along the three o’clock, six o’clock, and nine o’clock surfaces for the attachment of the included KRISS Vector Picatinny Side Rail Kit.

It seems Kriss missed the opportunity to make it MLOK compatible, which I think is going to upset a few potential customers. A potential deal breaker for many?

 

The materials is hard anodized aluminum and is designed as bolt on hand guard extension for the KRISS Vector CRB.

 

It mounts directly to the body of the KRISS Vector and will fit the KRISS Vector GEN II model.

The shape of the handguard follows the Vector’s shape, and it’s milled to reduce weight.

It looks like the new Kriss handguard “blends in” perfectly with the original firearm.

    Vector-SD when?

  • Jtx

    People are still buying these silly ass things in semi auto? They are today’s equivalent of a tech 9 or Mack 10 back in the 80s.

    • Gus Butts

      True, it’s way better to buy these in their original, full-auto state. Oh wait…

    • Haulin’ Oats

      Then what does this make a Semi-Auto, CZ Scorpion, MCX, or semi-auto AR-15?

      • Jtx

        Are you willing to be the weirdo that is proud to carry a semi auto sub machine gun? Yes I think sigs and cz fall into the same category if they can’t rock and roll like they are supposed to then they are silly ass. Ar 15s are inherently semi auto if they weren’t they would be m16s if you go out and get a sbr or pistol semi ar 15 and call it an m16 that my friend is silly ass.

        • Nicks87

          Pistol caliber carbines are like the hottest selling firearm right now and the prices companies are charging for semi auto MP5 clones is outrageous. So I think you might be the silly ass weirdo.

        • Stewart Hickey

          Not only do you sound like an ass, you are flat out wrong. The original ArmaLite AR-15 designed by Stoner was a selective fire 5.56 verison of his inital AR-10. Your point that anything that was originally designed as full auto is “weird” is ridiculous. Practically every semi auto you can buy has fully automatic lineage. Let people enjoy the products of their hard worked labor.

          Hey, everyone, stop liking what this guy doesn’t like!

    • Max

      The advantage over things like the Tech 9, Mack 9/10, CZ Scorpion, and MCX is… GLOCK magazine.
      The others take proprietary magazines where as the Kriss works with magazines for the most popular handgun in the US.

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      Im guessing youve never fired any of these guns.
      If you had you would know why two of them suck and one does not.

      • Haulin’ Oats

        Which one doesn’t suck?

        • TheNotoriousIUD

          The Tec-9

          • Haulin’ Oats

            So the suck list is a mac-10 and what else??

    • David Warschauer

      Semi-auto is the best auto

    Eric-“By the looks of it, it’s not possible to mount anything on the bottom of the rail.”

    “…female threading along the three o’clock, SIX O’CLOCK, and nine o’clock surfaces for the attachment…”

    Caps for emphasis.

    Feel free to delete my comment if you update the article.

    Mlok may not fit with the clearance between the rail and the shroud. Keymod would work, but it’s not the cool kid anymore.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    This gun and parts are going to be a real hit – if this all happened in 2012. They waited WAY too long to get a 9mm gun actually on shelves. They pre-dated and still missed the return of the subgun.

  • Lowe0

    I like my Vector carbine a lot, but at no point have I thought “what this needs is more mass bolted to it.”

  • Noigiallach

    Vector SBR+suppressor+Rail= Drool

  • Gun Fu Guru

    I’m sure Vector fans will appreciate it. They’re oddballs anyway.

  • Tom

    Keymod should just go away, it’s not as durable or secure as MLOK and repeated tests have proven it and it’s why the Army chose it over Keymod. The only thing keymod is good for is sacrificing weight for durability/strength for weight weenies, and allowing people who need to swap their accessories on an hourly basis do so easily.

  • Mazryonh

    If you’re not running a KRISS Vector with a suppressor or an extended barrel, then it looks like the muzzle blast would form behind the forward edge of the handguard, damaging it and any attached accessories. I suppose the bare minimum you would need to stop that would probably be one of those cylindrical blast diverters with a crown that extended past the handguard’s forward edge.

  • Nicholas C

    MLOK wont work without redesigning the rail. The problem is how narrow this handguard is and the barrel shroud underneath it. The handguard sits too close to the shroud and would interfere with MLOK hardware.
