Kriss USA announced the company was re-releasing California compliant Vector CRB carbines for its customers in The Golden State. The updated guns will meet all of the state’s newest gun restriction laws including the use of a grip wrap barrier made of Kydex. Additionally, the guns have the Defiance DS150 stock that gives the rifle an overall length of 36.5″.
The revised weapons will be available in four different calibers: 9mm, .40 S&W, 10mm and .45 ACP. All of these calibers will feed from a 10 round Glock magazine. Five color options will also be available. In addition to the ubiquitous black, California residents will be able to buy guns in flat dark earth, olive drab green, combat grey and alpine white. This brings the total number of combinations to 20 guns.
Each of the California compliant guns will carry a suggested retail price of $1,599. Local market conditions can drive that price up or down. According to the company, the guns are already shipping to its dealers in that state.
No doubt, California’s gun laws are a pain for manufacturers to deal with. However, as the nation’s most populous state, nearly 40 million (estimated) residents, it is a difficult market to ignore. Feel free to share your thoughts on the new Kriss guns in the comments below.
