The creation of the South American attempt to Kalashnikov — SMG «Kriss Super V»

The attempt to create the American "Kalashnikov" - SMG «Kriss Super V»

The creation of this standard South American arms was intended to improve the accuracy and accuracy in the management of automatic fire. America needed a small cannon to fire ammunition in caliber .45 ACP, which have the highest stopping power at short distances. For the base of the development of a sub-machine gun was taken to develop a French designer Reno Kerbra working in the Swiss company «Gamma». The company has a U.S. company «Transformational Defense Industries». «TDI» is committed to producing and experimental testing of a new type of weapon.

The predecessor
The database development was taken Reno Kerbra gun MC 3-1, developed by Russian master of sport of shooting P.Sheptarskim titled "Record." In '54 Sheptarsky makes automatic pistol for use in various competitions in target shooting, silhouettes. The design of small-caliber pistol fundamentally different from the guns used in competition. The main difference — placing the gun barrel parallel to the middle finger arm athlete that favorably affected by the use and production of fire.
Increased accuracy of hits on the target, in addition, the mechanism of the production was shooting comfort for athletes adjustment.
Thanks Tula designers Pherapont, Nikiforov and Ochnev who developed the project documentation, sketches and production technology, a pistol with the index MTS3 "Record" has managed to get into series creation.
Gun made waves in the sports community, the Western shooters he evoked admiration and envy, which ultimately led to the fact that at the end of 16th Olympic Games held in Melbrune, techno Commission International Association of Shooting Sports has introduced a restriction on the placement of the barrel relative to holding a gun hand.

The unit PP
PP «Kriss Super V» has a design automation with semifree shutter speed. Automatic mechanisms are working with special-liner counterweight that moves almost vertically behind the neck of the store. Shutter ridges are joined in a special insert oblique grooves. When firing the shutter return of specially slowed by friction on the liner when it is returning to its initial state. This significantly reduces recoil and increases the accuracy of results. The handle is quite high from the axis of the barrel, but the upper part of the butt is placed on the same level with the axis of the barrel. This allowed the folded vector direction of the impact point and stubborn submachine gun. All this, together with the shutter speed allowed semifree very lower returns and toss the barrel of the weapon, these services only spoils rate of PP.
For a more clear and precise shooting PP «Kriss Super V», equipped with his rifle butt, down the side, and a detachable front handle.

Production options

The results of the first tests of the layout with a submachine gun, conducted by «TDI», have shown tremendous flexibility in the management of fire, good accuracy and reduced toss hits the barrel in the manufacture of automatic fire. These findings they say that the PP «Kriss Super V» is superior to the known features of the South American «HK UMP-45" and «HKMP5».

The first version of a submachine gun with the title «Vector SMG» is intended for use in paramilitary structures, such as police forces, special purpose units, the armed forces. The submachine gun has a short trunk at 14 cm and is equipped with several variations in the production of automatic firing.
The second option is the title of «Vector CRB / SO» is intended for civilian gun market. The submachine gun has a very long barrel 41 inch, because in the United States for civilian weapon in the performance of a short-much harder to get a license for the acquisition and implementation. The barrel is equipped with silencers simulator for bargain submachine gun aesthetic appearance. The civilian PP has the ability to lead only automatic fire. Also available is an option with a small barrel for civilian market under the title «Vector SBR / SO». All PP «Kriss Super V» equipped with Picatinny rail located on top of the receiver. This will allow to use different attachments.
Shop submachine gun compatible with «Glock 21", 13 standard capacity ammunition, extended store has a capacity of 30 rounds.

— height 17.5 cm;

Additional information
Price 1st PP is 1500-2000 dollars, depending on the embodiment.
Trying to make a massive and cheap submachine gun did not come out. The U.S. military has not seen in PP "Kriss Super V "distinguishing features. All analogues inferior to him in many traits. But taking it on board the main personal weapon, able to completely get spread as Russian" Kalashnikov ", because, in fact they have a lot in common — inflated reliability, simplicity and the highest affecting performance.
