Swiss Govt. Prevents KRISS Exporting To Saudi Arabia

    KRISS was planning on exporting pistol components from their factory in Switzerland to their US factory ,where they would be incorporated into guns being exported to Saudi Arabia, until the Swiss government refused to approve their export license. The guns were to be used by the Saudi Royal Guard Regiment whose duty it is to protect the king and his family.

    The likely outcome, in my opinion, is that the components will simply be manufactured in the USA. KRISS would have had to get State Department approval in any case if they were planning on exporting guns from the country.
