NRA Gun of the Week: KRISS Vector Gen II CRB

posted on October 8, 2016

There is no doubt that KRISS USA is up to some interesting things. For example, the Vector Gen II CRB is a pistol-caliber carbine in the company’s line that is built around KRISS’ rather unique operating system. As a non-NFA firearm, this 16” carbine boasts flip-up sights, Picatinny rail and feeds from Glock pistol magazines. Interestingly, the Vector Gen II allows for easily swapping upper receivers between 9 mm Luger, 10 mm and .45 ACP. Watch this week’s video hosted by Kelly Young to learn more about the Vector Gen II.
