The entire KRISS line is going to be available in .40 S&W later this year. Additionally, lower receivers will be sold so that a .45 model can be converted to .40 S&W. Like the .45 version, it also uses Glock magazines.

The photo below of the prototype .40 S&W submachine gun model. I had to promise them I would make is clear it is a prototype and that the finish on the lower is rough and not what will be seen on the production version.

    Wonder how powerful it'd be like if it were to be chambered in .460 Rowland... dang that'd be one helluva machine cannon haha.

    Why the Kriss isn't made in 10mm, I have no idea. Guides in Alaska don't carry 45s for defense against bears... they carry 10mm..

    Think about it... a weapon like the Kriss throwing the equivalent of .44 magnum energy downrange full outo...

    It's a no brainer
