What is the KRISS Vector?

The KRISS Vector is a major re-think and redesign of the way in which semi and automatic weapon operating systems should work — a design challenge that hasn’t been successfully addressed since the invention of the Maxim machine gun more than 120 years ago.

Any caliber weapon, firing a cartridge ranging from .223 to 50 BMG or larger, generates tremendous levels of recoil to cycle the weapon which is felt by the operator. This felt recoil and increased muzzle climb will drastically reduce the accuracy of the operator and the time needed to re-acquire the target. The KRISS system was designed to address and solve these issues and work with the operator for a more desirable effect.

The KRISS Vector is the only weapon operating system in the world that actually helps the operator put more rounds on-target, more of the time. Traditional weapons operating systems actually work against the operator; these systems create recoil and barrel elevation forces that require the operator to constantly recapture his sight picture. Instead, by revectoring these forces, the patented Vector system works with the shooter by helping to keep the muzzle exactly where the operator points it. No recapturing or reacquiring of sight picture is needed.

The KRISS Vector overcomes the effects of the felt recoil by redirecting the blowback energy down and away from the operator. Traditional firearms utilize a “straight-line” design that drives the action of the firearm directly toward the operator creating a substantial increase in the felt recoil and movement.

The Vector reduces the felt recoil and muzzle climb through a counter-balancing mass in the form of the bolt and slider mechanism that absorbs the shock and redirects the forces away from the operator. This action will increase the operator’s ability to consistently put rounds on target faster and more accurately whether it’s semi-auto, multi-round burst, or a full automatic rate of fire.
