Speaking of photos, I also found a couple of shots of me firing the TDI KRISS Super-V XSMG .45 Cal. (.45 ACP) SMG at NDIA Small Arms Systems Symposium 2007, as well. The KRISS is essentially a 21st-Century version of a Thompson submachine gun. DefenseReview enjoyed shooting the weapon, and is interested to see test data on a high-round-count/adverse conditions test of the weapon.

For the record, Defense Review is…

a proponent of controllable .45 subguns for CQB/CQC (Close Quarters Battle/Close Quarters Combat) applications. Nothing really beats a controllable .45 SMG for close-in work, save perhaps for a MPS AA-12 Full-Auto Shotgun (a.k.a. AA12 Full-Auto Shotgun) or a compact, standard lightweight combat shotgun like a Benelli M1 Super-90 tactical semi-auto shotgun. However, the KRISS Super-V XSMG is significantly more compact than both the AA-12 and the Super-90, and it’s definitely significantly lighter than the AA12.
