Full Auto Day – Kriss Super V

There hasn’t been a truly innovative 45 caliber submachine gun produced, that can think of, since the Thompson. The folks at Transformational Defense Industries (TDI), have come up with a really novel one, that I just must own, but can’t, thanks to the Hughes Amendment.

That is slick. The idea is so simple, I can’t believe someone didn’t think if it before. But notice how the grip is raised above the barrel more than in a standard submachine gun. This seriously reduces recoil and muzzle climb and makes firing on full auto very controllable.

Here’s a video of it straight from SHOT 2007:

    just letting you know, it’s not the location of the grip that diminishes the recoil but an innovative mechanism that takes the recoil back and drives a V type mechanism down in front of the grip. I know some of the guys making this but regretably, I haven’t had a chance to fire this bad boy yet but I want to.

    This is a picture of the internal mechanism on their site

    take care

    I haven’t had a chance to see one up close and personal either. I’d love to field strip one to see how it all worked. Surely it’s quite a neat design.
