The KRISS .45 submachine-style gun is now available in a Short Barrel Rifle (SBR) configuration (I say submachine-style because the civilian version is semi-automatic). The SRB/SO features a 5.5″ barrel and weight 5.6 lbs when unloaded.

The Vector is fed from Glock 21 magazines.

More info here.

    (With a nod to J.A. James)I have been hearing that the Super V suffers from failure to fire/failure to feed malfunctions on a regular basis.(I Don't think sand, water or dirt was involved)

    Could anyone with hands on firing experience with the carbine, or in-depth engineering insight please confirm or expain?

    It's an interesting concept, but it seems like it might be susceptible to failure in adverse conditions, being a (fairly) complicated mechanism and all.

      @Royce C. I have a Kriss Vector and I can't make it through a 25 round mag without multiple feed malfunctions! I can't even make it through the stock Glock 21 mags without a malfunction! I bought it two months ago, and found out it was on the shelf since 2009. Now I'm wondering what needs to be done to it to avoid the constant malfunctions! Any help?

    Too much Hk theatricks,dump it in dirt, try that with the bolt open on your MP5k?,so what your realy saying is it needs a dust cover? that is fair enough. Recoil sensitive overrated? do you think that a 5.6 lbs firing full auto 45 ACP at 1000 rounds-per-minute hard to handle and stay on target? wow you must be a giant! .The Kriss does it better then anything in it's weight class with all Hk theatricks aside.

    Who ever is crying about my semi Kriss does not work should send it back for a free upgrade and wipe his tears with the owner's manual page 2.
