My Vector is a 9mm, Biden scared me bad so I got a safer .45 version with a longer barrel.

Picked this up a few minutes ago at Knob Creek. Dudes, I was at the new giant home of E-town "Sportsmans Rod & Gun" followed by a trip to Kentucky Gun Company in Bardstown yesterday. Couldn't find what I needed, the only thing I "wanted" that they had was a 1924 Thompson SMG, but it was $25K. Too much for me. Huge selection but tons of the same old shit that I already have some version of. Anyway, went up to Knob Creek today, and the selection was WAY better than either of the other two places, both new and used. Long story short I picked up a Kriss Vector CRB in .45, something I wanted for a few years now. I already have the Kriss Vector in the 9mm pistol. I will go back and shoot up a few paper villians tomorrow, supposed to be hotter and no rain. Two other things I liked: a gatling gun with new carriage, and they had a nice selection of Colt .32 from the old days, automatic type like a baby 1911. Plus too much more to mention.

I was bidding on one of these with a shitload of extra mags used on Gunbroker, had optics too, but it went too high and I felt better buying a new one than an unknown quality and condition used one from across the country. The savings were not that much even at my max bid, and the barrel shroud was the round one, this one costs a $100 more to buy it alone. I'm also happy because this model takes AR15 buttstocks, my other one takes a hinged type folding stock.

That was my first time bidding on there, I don't like it much.

While I was in there, three different men (adults) came and went, after picking up a AR15 each. One guy said, I don't need one, I got plenty of guns but no AR15. I thought I would get one while I still can. lol

I'm of the thinking ALL AUCTIONS on the INTERNET are rigged. Many Estate Auctions can be rigged but being there in attendance one can usually figure out who the players are.

Got busy today and did the work and mounted my folding pistol brace on my 9mm Vector.

Are you crazy? What do you need that much firepower for? According to Biden the 9mm Parabellum is a monstrously powerful round, capable of blowing bowling ball sized holes in a body, punching entire lungs out with one shot! No doubt also used in the demolition of old bank vaults. Muzzle energy on par with 20mm anti-aircraft rounds.

Oh, the Humanity, the Destruction!

Cool pics thanks for sharing!

I dont know much about the Vector. How long is the barrel on these? Do they use proprietary magazines or other manufacturer magazines? I went with a Rugar PC9 for my carbine and that was mostly just because its cheap and uses the same mags as my glocks. Cool carbine congrats!

Thanks!
Barrels can vary in length based on where they are being sold, my 9mm is 5.5"
Uses Glock magazines for both the 9mm and .45.
They make an extension for the mags if you need more capacity.
I bought one for the new .45, seems to work well.

Fired both vectors at Knob Creek this morning. Had a good time, perfect day. Guy two shooting positions down kept parting my hair with his rifle, caused by his muzzle end I guess. The air blast was something.

I was able to zero the iron sights on the Vector .45 pretty good. Magazines worked as intended.

Just had to order moar ammo in 9mm and .45 for expected future fun.


The brace on the 9mm works pretty good.

The 2 pictures below were separated by about a second. The rifle is chambered in 50 BMG. I'm lucky it didn't break my lens.

This was at my home range, in North Georgia.
