I’ve known for some time that KRISS was making a new version of the Vector but I had no idea they actually had a rimfire model in the works. That model is a KRISS carbine in .22 LR ! It’s called the KRISS Vector CRB. I don’t know about the rest of you that have been fans of the KRISS or may be owners of one but that’s pretty exciting news for me.

The configuration is very close to its big brother in 45 ACP. The photo below will give you some idea of the layout.


Operating method closed bolt

Caliber .22 LR

Length Open 34.8 inches

Length Folded 24.49 inches

Weight Unloaded 92.77 ounces

Barrel 16:1 Twist /Length 15.98 Inches

Price to be announced.

    Just get an airsoft one. The gun and ammo would be cheaper, it would have more recoil, a short barrel, and you could shoot FA. Why does this exist?

    Many of you forget that the KRISS Vector was always designed as a SMG. The Super V system is superflous on the carbine, I know I shoot mine a lot. But in Full Auto it is a different story. Due to it's increasing popularity they are making an affordable option outside ot the Airsoft version from KWA. Why is there a 22LR SCAR? For people who can't afford the real thing but dont want airsoft. If there is a demand, someone will fill it.

    Now I can only hope KRISS ARMS doesnt screw this up and offers the KRISS Vector 22LR at an affordable price like $500. I suspect it will be made similarly like other replica 22LR guns and be a step above airsoft but not quite the same quality as the 45 acp Vector.
