Allen from KWA USA sent this interesting announcement. While the KRISS Super V was one of the hits at this year’s IWA fair in Nuernberg, it surely is going to be a hit among airsofters once it hits the stores. In order to stir things up a bit, KWA’s announcement is spot on:
KWA TO PRODUCE GBB VERSION OF KRISS VECTOR SMG
City of Industry, CA, July 29, 2010 – KWA is pleased to announce an exciting partnership with KRISS Systems SA, designer and manufacturer of the KRISS Vector submachine gun. KRISS Systems SA, a Swiss global industry leader in firearm innovation, holds the patent for the unique Super V System found in the KRISS Vector.
Unlike conventional firearm designs, the KRISS Super V System redirects recoil forces to aid the user, rather than work against the user. Even with the powerful recoil of the .45 ACP round, the Vector “reduces felt recoil by as much as 70% and muzzle climb by as much as 95%!” This breakthrough design has been featured in popular television programs such as Future Weapons and Ultimate Weapons. It has also received numerous accolades from the staff writers of Guns and Weapons for Law Enforcement and Popular Science for revolutionizing firearms engineering. The KRISS Vector SMG is currently under evaluation by various special operations units worldwide to become a referenced weapon for Close Quarter Battle and Urban Warfare. With such advanced technology, an airsoft version is the natural step.
KWA has been granted an exclusive, worldwide license to design and produce GBB (Gas Blow Back) versions of the KRISS Vector, never before done within the airsoft industry. The first prototype of the Vector GBB will be unveiled at the 2011 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The new airsoft gun will be 1:1 in dimensions and powered by KWA’s advanced gas system technology; providing consistent and reliable operation KWA products are known for. Pricing and release dates will be announced in the future.
“Designing the GBB airsoft KRISS Vector SMG is a unique challenge that requires both innovative out-of-the-box thinking and strong Research and Development capabilities. Powered by precision engineering, high performing products and a passion to outperform, we entrusted KWA as the sole manufacturer of all our current and upcoming KRISS GBB airsoft products” said Christophe Guignard, Director of Marketing of KRISS Systems SA.
With unparalleled customer and warranty service, KWA strives to ensure that all of its products are of the highest quality and its customers are properly cared for. The introduction of the 2GX AEG (Airsoft Electric Gun) gearbox and the NS2 GBB system has set a new standard in airsoft technology.
