Stack ‘Em Up: Catastrophic KRISS Kaboom (For The Second Time)

    God bless competent gunsmiths. Not only do they have to deal with a broad spectrum of weapons in for upgrade and repair, but a wide range of owners as well. Today, on the back end of the curve, we have a negligent KRISS Vector owner who has not once, but twice, chambered and fired the wrong ammunition in his or her pistol caliber carbine. That’s right, a year before this event, the original barrel was ruined under similar circumstances.¬†Here’s what the ‘smith “Mike The Collector” posted about receiving the poor gun for repair:

    This is the Theory (since we only have the evidence)

    Kriss is a 45. customer loaded up a full mag, chambered the gun, and fired. At some point, an entire cartridge of 9mm ended up in the barrel (how’d it get there? must have loaded it into the mag, howd he get it to fit in a 45 magazine? customers are magicians)

    So when the kriss ‘chambered’ the 9mm, it obviously went down the barrel. And when the trigger was pulled, nothing would have happened. So they would have cycled the action to chamber a new round.

    When that went off, the bullet may have hit the primer of the 9mm cartridge. Thus which is why there is an empty 9mm case in front of the 3 ‘squibs’. I say squibs lightly because it really wasnt a squid. Its more of a “stupid”.

    But this wasnt noticed fast enough because he fired off 3 rounds total very quickly. So you can see the 3 separate 45 bullets smashed into each other.

    So to clarify. Somehow, 3 rounds of 45 are smashed into each other behind a 9mm case inside the barrel.

    whats interesting and unexplainable to me is the 2 bulges at the end of the barrel. almost like something blew up right at the end of the barrel? idk..

    You want to know the greatest part about this? This isnt the first time we lost the kriss. someone blew up the Kriss’s barrel as well last year. Can you guess how? We found 3 or 4 cartridges of 40cal down in the barrel. Youd think you’d only ever see this once, til it happens again.


    KRISS kaboom

    Seeing as how this is not a select fire weapon, I am perplexed at the shooters ability to stack three 45 bullets on top of each other. I guess it’s possible that the barrel didn’t rupture until the last round, but… wow. Just wow.

    I don’t believe that anyone should need a license to buy, carry and use firearms. But how can we setup a ‘common sense testing and licensing bureau’. It might be time.
