Does anyone on here have a Kriss Vector in 45ACP?
I was looking at getting another PCC for the house (already have a SUB2000 that likes to live in the Jeep), and I figured 45ACP would be really easy to suppress.
What are y'alls thoughts?
The Kriss Vector is absolutely AWESOME... in it’s full auto variant. The range I worked at for a while had a Vector machine gun and it shot insanely fast and stayed flat. I however feel the same way about the MP5 platform yet there are thousands and thousands of people shelling out $2500 for a civvy MP5. To each his own.

TAM I’d be interested in hearing if your son has the same issues with the gun & if he has done anything to correct them.
In answer to your first question, yes, he HAS had the exact same accuracy issues, but not with the suppressor mounted. I’m not about to mount a $850 suppressor onto a $430 carbine, just so that the carbine can destroy the suppressor—as has almost happened once already. Unsuppressed, it shoots to approximately the same point of impact for him as it did for me. In fact, he shot the Sub-2000 and my PC9 together on the same day at Elm Fork in Dallas, even using the same target—a standard B27. The PC9 shot to point of aim, and the Kel-Tec did not. It was off by roughly the same amount and in the same direction for him, as it previously had been for me. By the way, I shoot left-handed, and my son shoots right-handed, so it’s definitely not a shooter error problem.

To answer the second question, so far as I know, he has not yet addressed the problem to see if it can be fixed. He just started a new job on Monday, and he’s been pretty busy. I do know that he intends to try, as he’d like to be able to throw it in his messenger bag.

Again, I want to reiterate that others may not be having this problem with their Sub-2000s. It’s entirely possible that ours is a lemon. But I’m not ever going to drop another $430 to find out if ours is an exception to the rule, and risk having $860 worth of junk. IF I ever buy/build another PCC, it will either be an AR, or it will be something like the Striborg or something with a folding stock that’s well-established like a CZ Scorpion.

Was it the first generation or the Gen2?

TAM,

That's pretty odd, and you are right. My experience is quite a bit different. My SUB2000 has been absolutely reliable, with everything I've fed it. And I have been able to do headshots at 25m without too much trouble. The only thing I've added to it, was a Burris Fastfire mounted on a Midwest Industries mount.

As for getting a different PCC....I love my AR platforms, but I'd like to look into non-AR options, in either 9mm or 45ACP for suppression purposes (it sucks to shoot 5.56 indoors). Preferably in a large pistol format so it would be easier to move around indoors.

I've been pretty happy with my Sig MPX pistol. It's been reliable and pretty fun to shoot. The only downside has been the cost of magazines. Planning on SBR'ing it sometime.

I honesty don't know why people waste their time and money on PCCs.
My smallest 300BLK pistol doesn't fit in my messenger bag.

My micro Scorpion does.

MPX mags are a little on the pricey side, but then I point at what STI mags cost and the pain goes away. :mrgreen:

What length is your pistol? I can't seem to make up my mind what to go with. Gen 1 had 4.5, 6", and 8" pistols. Gen 2 is 4.5" with some 8" available through LE sales.

I did run a factory 4.5" MPX SBR at the Sig academy range a couple of months back for a CQB course. I was very impressed with the accuracy out of that short barrel, but found the handguard a little too short for my liking. The most comfortable position ended up with me grasping the magwell with my thumb over the top rail.

With that experience in mind, thinking about setting up a 4.5" barrel with the 8" handguard and just keeping it suppressed. Or, go with the 8" barrel and only occasionally suppressing the MPX. I keep going back and forth on that point. The suppressed 4.5" is bad to the bone, but unsuppressed for the the occasional PCC match would be more practical.

I'm going to bite the bullet before end of the year one way or another.

I love the CX4 and it's thumbhole stock. I also prefer left ejection and being able to easily change it without buying any other parts. I also didn't have to buy any additional mags since I had plenty of 17 round 92 mags as well as some 30 rounders.

I recently made one of my CX4s 922r compliant and had the barrel threaded to use with my 9mm CGS/ZEV Kraken suppressor (still in ATF jail, going on 12 months).

I like the size, weight, and the way it balances/handles.
