The kriss vector.

Proof an engineer can come up with a 500 dollar solution to a problem a 20 dollar muzzle break takes care of.

He must have been working for NASA at some point.

A. Where are you finding effective, $20 muzzlebrakes, and

B. Muzzlebrakes are a good way to guarantee complaints from the people beside you at a public range. Heck, I figure getting buffeted by muzzleblast is part of the appeal of shooting, but it seems many people don't agree.

Who needs a muzzlebrake for a .45ACP carbine? And if you're rocking the SBR/giggleswitch version, throw a can on it to keep the muzzle down. I haven't been impressed with it for anything beyond the cool factor.

I was thinking of the supposed 308 version, without having to go the NFA route.

Anyhoo, I'm thinking it'd look cool with a removable carry handle & front sight.

Yeah, I don't get it. What is the advantage? The Kriss, as a blowback, will not function with a rifle cartridge, and anyway, its main advantage is full-auto in a short-barreled subgun because of a low barrel. Most gas-powered rifles already have a gas tube on top, and how would you lower the barrel in a rifle without adding 6" to the overall length? The chamber would have to be in front of the shooter's hand.

I'm guessing the operating system will be modified to delay extraction until chamber pressures have subsided to a safe level (likely some form of gas piston activation, you can see the adjustable gas block in the illustrations). Hopefully the 2nd Amendment will be reinstated by 2023, and Americans will be able to obtain full-auto H&Ks with minimal interference.

Perfect looking small arm for the next Tom Cruise / Will Smith sci-fi opus. Very cool work making the pictures.
"Flawlessly". Every time I see this word in a thread, I brace myself for bullshit. Around half the time I end up feeling vindicated.
