Shot Show 2012: MilSimJunkie - KWA (Kriss Vector)

Finally! After all the waiting KWA has announced an airsoft Kriss Vector fully licensed from the guys that make the real thing. As an individual who has fired its real steel counterpart (video here) I have patiently been awaiting its airsoft version. Its great to see that KWA has been working diligently at re-creating a Super-V style system.

This announcement was the biggest hit in the airsoft industry on day one of Shot Show. The booth was filled with some of your favorite airsoft YouTube celebrities and alike.

The Kriss Vector will use a Force Velocity (FV) system which is a unique gas system aim at delivering maximum effectiveness while being very efficient on consumption. With KWA's unique FV design it will recreate the delayed blowback action of the Kriss Arms version. This will provide the shooter with sustainable 2-round and full auto fire.

Aimed at the training end for Kriss Arms the KWA Kriss Vector will see many uses on airsoft fields. The collapsable stock and short frame size (at 8.75") make it the ideal close quarter weapon. At only 2.5 lb its an easy cary on any loadout. Like its real steel counterpart the accessory rail on the front will make mounting attachements a breeze. While the system comes with iron sites the rail on the upper receiver portion of the weapon will make adding an optic easy.

Unlike what we have seen in viral videos I am told the KWA KRISS Vector will be using proprietary 24 round magazines with the hopes of 50 round extended magazines in the future.

From what I have heard the 2-round burst and full auto mag dumps on this weapon are so fast that many people have thought the weapon was not functioning properly. This is going to make for some very interesting gameplay and rest assured I will make this weapon system apart of my airsoft aresenal
