Kriss Super V in .45 and .40 caliber

Even though is not your standard design, I like the looks of it and have contemplated
getting one when I get back to the US. I definitely want handle it and see how it feels.
From what I have read, most like the feel of the rilfe, as well as the operation of it.
Hopefully I can get a chance to shoot it in June..will see.

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA - (January 2010) - Transformational Defense Industries, Inc. (KRISS-TDI), a global leader in firearm operating system technology, announced today the official launch of their new .40 S&W caliber version of the popular KRISS Super V series, including the SMG, CRB/SO, and SBR/SO. In addition, KRISS-TDI will be showcasing their new .40 S&W and .45 ACP pistol variant of the KRISS Super V SBR/SO at the 2010 Shot Show.
After an extensive advanced R&D process encompassing all of 2009, the new product line will be available for order, beginning with the 2010 National Shooting Sports Foundation SHOT Show, January 19-22 in Las Vegas, NV. With the tremendous success of the KRISS family of .45 ACP firearms, increased demand for a .40 S&W caliber version, specifically in the LE and civilian markets, has driven the company to expand their production line.

"Adding the .40 S&W rounds to the .45 ACP family is a natural progression that not only responds to the changing needs of our customers in the LE and civilian markets, but shows the priority our company takes in providing what our customers are asking for," said Chuck Kushell, CEO of KRISS-TDI.

The KRISS's ability to handle both the heavy-hitting .45 ACP round as well as the higher velocities and chamber pressures generated by the .40 S&W makes it the perfect firearm for LE officers in close quarter combat situations and for civilians looking for an ideal self-defense firearm. The .40 S&W will share the identical price as the .45 ACP as KRISS-TDI continues to provide the most innovative products with competitive pricing.

In addition to expanding the new caliber version of the KRISS firearms, KRISS-TDI is set to expand in a new direction in providing their customers with a pistol version of the SBR/SO in both the .40 S&W and .45 ACP calibers which was recently ATF approved. A direction taken by the company in order to satisfy a high number of requests from customers for a KRISS Super V pistol.

"We are highly dedicated to expanding our research and development in order to stay ahead of the curve in creating the most innovative, accurate, and easy to maintain firearms in the industry," said Kushell. "We have a lot in store for 2010 and we are excited to kickoff the new year unveiling our .40 S&W version of our KRISS firearms and our new pistol variant of our SBR/SO at the 2010 Shot Show."

The KRISS Super V SMG has been hailed by the Military Channel's Ultimate Weapons series as the #1 Close Quarter Battle Firearm and was also featured on the Discovery Channel's Future Weapons program. Further accolades include the Outdoor Channel's What the Stuff and USA Shooting's Best of Shot Show 2008.

i like this sub gun

The idea of recoil at a 45 degree down angle seems like a great idea. I saw this on future weapons about a year ago. I have put this on my wish list now that it is available to public.

from what I have found is 1700 (cheapest), longer barrel though, with around 2K for the SBR version. Of course, you can go up to about 2800-3100 with the TAC PAC, which includes single point sling, Eotech 512 holographic optics, forward grip,33 round magazines, case and cleaning kit. I think the kit is 989, I priced is separately and it came out pretty close...a bit cheaper.

The only thing about it though...the action on it really lends itself to full automatic. I mean, don't get me wrong the recoil is going to be much different I am sure...but if you had a full auto and a need to use it, that is where you would really excel with this type of weapon (or 3-round burst, etc).. What do you think?

Forgot this with the kit:

Pkato and the Kriss

I agree, A semi auto version of this system seems like a gimmick. The science behind the mechanics should shine during sustained auto fire. That said, it would still be cool to have one, with my recent purchase, there is no way I can afford on now...

KRISS hands on

Greasy and I went to a gunshow on saturday. One of the vendors had a Kriss. I got to play with it a little. Ergonomics are decent. Seemed sturdy enough in my hands. Greasy commented that it reminded him of a Kel-Tec. It had a continuous top rail and holes drilled out on the sides near the muzzle for a short rail on each side. The folding stock was a bit cumbersome to work, but maybe after field use for a while the pin will loosen up. One surprise was learning that it accepted Glock magazines. This is a nice feature as there are a proliferation of these magazines. You can buy them at just about any gun store.
After talking with the "booth guy" for a bit, he let it slip that most of the ammo (.45 ACP) on the market does not burn hot enough to ignite all the powder in the case. This leaves that dreaded powder residue on the action and eventually fouls or jambs the gun. He told us it was good for about 200 rounds before a thorough cleaning was required. He did however, comment that Transformational Defense Industries, Inc. was working with cartridge manufacturers to design a .45 ACP load for their gun. He did not reveal much about the .40S&W. There a lot of good reviews on this gun, but after our conversation, I will need some range time to determine the accuracy of those reviews.

Hey Clint

What is the primary purpose of this weapon. Long pistol or short rifle? Zombie Killer or just a nice toy. Not much good for elk killing is it?
Just curious!

Sam, this is close quarters rifle...from what I read, good out to 200 yards, no further.
