It's blowback. Needs cleaning quite a bit. Highly reliable. Front heavy with the faux suppressor.

My bud bought one and and competes with it in UPSA. Lotsa fun. Manual of arms is very different. Takes a bit to get the mag changes down. CA version have a bullet button and Kriss won't sell u a standard one even if you say it's featureless.

If youre paying anything close to 1800, get a Sig MPX. Slightly better design.

Also to the OP, the main purpose of the vector was to have less recoil when going full auto since it has a special V type of blow back, thus the energy is going down and not backwards. So to take that and put it in a 9mm 10 round mag seems kinda moot. I think they look awesome, you just don't get the full bang of how awesome they are here in California.

Get a Kel-Tec Sub 2000 in 9mm. Much more practical, and still very cool looking.

It is not direct blowback, the camming action is regulated by an angled guide unit. The specific angle(s) control the effective spring rate, and if the angles are not constant, you can effectively have multiple spring rates (this is a property exploited by roller "delay" and lever "delay" mechanisms).

The KRISS Vector does the same thing. The first bit of bolt head travel works against a much higher effective spring rate than the remainder of the travel. This allows KRISS to use a lower spring weight than usual (though they don't really take advantage of this, iirc) or a much lighter/smaller bolt than a direct blowback (they do take advantage of this).

It's fun and smooth shooting gun, you would enjoy it.

My would not feed the last two rounds but KRISS fixed it for free. Personally I prefer the Vector over the MPX. The Vector uses cheaper mags, handles better and the factory trigger is pretty good.

That or the tungsten colored one would be a BAMF firearm in 10mm. With the new AW laws I had given up on getting one but with their CA compliant model I may get one down the line.

this is what makes me want to get a vector over my original plan of the tavor in 9mm.

plus i want to build that poly80% glock so then i can share magazines.

CZ Scorpion evo s1 carbine is a fun 9mm carbine too.. Mine has shot flawless since the very first shot. I shoot it every weekend for the past few months. Simple design, Tons of aftermarket parts made and OEM parts are everywhere for these. You can get them from audiophil for 1k shipped to your FFL in featureless form.

I second that....I got mine from Phil as well and it's super reliable and really fun to shoot. Phil is my go to guy for a middleman he's the best in my opinion
