The Kriss Super V submachine gun was developed by Transformational Defense Industries (TDI). It is currently an experimental weapon.
The main advantage of the Kriss Super V is an improved control, accuracy and better grouping of hits on the target, comparing with ordinary submachine guns. It can also be fired using a single hand with adequate accuracy. Axis of recoil in this submachine gun is in line with the firing hand. This feature minimizes muzzle climb after each shot. It also uses a moving weight attached to the bolt, to divert recoil force to the bottom. It also employs hydraulic buffer assembly to decrease rate of fire.
The Kriss Super V is blowback operated, firing from closed bolt. It is chambered for a .45 ACP rounds. This submachine gun has selective fire modes, including single fire, 2-shpt burst, and full-auto modes. Fire mode selector is ambidextrous, as well as a manual safety switch. Cocking handle is folding, and is located from the left side of the gun. It is not moving when the gun is fired.
A prototype of the Kriss Super V submachine gun is fed by 19-round Glock magazines, however production models will be fed from 28- or 30-round magazines. Magazine housing is located in pistol grip.
This submachine gun is fitted with "Picatinny" rails for ample mounting space for accessories, including sights, flashlights and laser-aiming modules. This submachine gun also has a side-folding stock, for better accuracy.
The Kriss Super V displayed very promising results during live firing tests, however it's bulky shape might became a serious drawback for it's adoption to service.
