KRISS USA recently announced the latest addition to their product line, a rimfire version of the Vector pistol caliber carbine. The gun is most widely known from film and video games, is an instantly recognizeable due to it's unique shape. Traditionally this shape comes from the vertically camming bolt, designed to reduce felt recoil. Unlike it's centerfire bigger brother, the .22LR Vector features a straight blowback design, like most rimfire firearms.
KRISS is offering both rifle and braced pistol configurations. Shooters can choose from black, alpine white, and flat dark earth color variants in both configurations. The Vector is fed via proprietary magazines in 10 and 30 round capacities. Here's hoping we see updates for Glock 44 magazine compatibility! All versions feature threaded barrels for suppressor and other muzzle device use. MSRP on the .22LR Vector is $649.99.
