Virginia-based KRISS USA on Thursday announced a rimfire expansion to their Vector series firearms with six new guns chambered in .22LR.
The new rimfire Vector will officially hit the market at SHOT Show in Las Vegas later this month but KRISS let the cat out of the bag early. The rimfire line will include three Vector CRB carbines with 16-inch barrels and an M4-style stock while the three braced pistol Vector SDP-SB models come standard with an SB Tactical stabilizing brace and 6.5-inch barrels. Each will be offered in black, flat dark earth, and alpine white color options.
“We are very excited to add .22 Long Rifle to the list of calibers that the Vector is now chambered,” said Tim Seargeant, the marketing manager for KRISS. “The release of the Vector .22LR is an important milestone in the development of the Vector platform by making it more accessible to shooters of all skill levels and budget-minded consumers.”
Importantly, the new plinkers will be the most affordable KRISS Vectors on the market, with an MSRP of $649– a pricepoint about half that of centerfire models.
Both styles of rimfire Vectors use 10-round magazines, although 30-round models will be available.
