Yes, Kriss brought out the Vector in 10mm. And I don’t care.
I LOVE the 10mm cartridge. The fact that there’s a new 10mm Carbine on the market, makes me happy. But I don’t want it.
Yes, it looks like it shoots well. However I find the Vector to be distasteful. The overall weapon system is far too bulky, and I find the weapon to be awkward on top of that.
During the heady days of Crusader Weaponry, one came into the shop and Joe was working on refinishing it. The weapon is excessively complicated, and everything pins through and into a sub-chassis that I feel is too delicate.
During my time as Retail Manager for Blackstone Shooting Sports, a customer wanted to look at the fixed stock version of one of the Vectors we had. He tried to fold the stock… and of course, broke it. Vector gave me hell trying to replace the part, insisting that I pay for a new one. I was finally able to get the part replaced under warranty, but it left a bad taste in my mouth for the company. It’s worth noting that the customer looked like a pasty white Urkel and did not have a lot of power to apply to the stock to get it to break so easily, and he didn’t even try. It broke far too easily. So if you want a Vector Carbine, get the folder version, not the fixed stock version.
Honestly, I don’t care if the Vector fired phased plasma in the 40 watt range. I wont have one. Being overly complicated, delicate and fragile, being awkward and bulky and is as attractive as George Soros and Diane Feinstein’s Love Child… I have a whole SHOT Industry worth of better options to spend my money on.
If you have one, and you like it – that’s the great thing about the Industry now – There are a great many choices. But for me, Kriss Vector isn’t one of them.
