I’ve noticed a few hits from Google and a few other sites for the Kriss Super V, along with some speculation about whether there’d be a civilian version. I’ve always been one that, if you take the machine gun out of submachine gun, it just doesn’t really interest me.
I can accept semi-auto versions of assault rifles, because assault rifles are generally most useful with the selector on semi-auto, with burst and full auto mode being only for those oh so special occasions. Don’t get me wrong, I’d rather have M16s and M4s in my safe, than AR-15s, but I still think semi-auto ARs are great weapons in their own right, and worth owning and shooting.
But give me a semi-auto version of a submachine gun, and I just want to cry. Same with belt fed, semi-auto versions of classic machine guns. It’s just sacrilege. These weapons are meaningless as semi-automatic arms, and that’s why I don’t plan on making anything belt fed acquisitions until I can collect proper examples, that function the way God, and John Moses Browning, intended them to function.
