Prototype TDI Vector - .45 ACP
TDI Vector Gen I - .45 ACP
KRISS USA Vector Gen I, later model with different safety - .45 ACP
KRISS USA Vector Gen II - .45 ACP / 9x19mm Parabellum. Note the new pistol grip, magwell, trigger and 45-degree safety. The Gen II also eliminates the opening above the barrel for the original weapon's optional Surefire weaponlight, since these are no longer manufactured.
KRISS USA Vector Gen 2.1 - .45 ACP / 9x19mm Parabellum. This newer version comes with an integrated AR stock adaptor and a KRISS DS150 stock.
KRISS USA Vector Gen 2.1 - .45 ACP / 9x19mm Parabellum. This one is in the "Enhanced" configuration, which consists of a 6.5" barrel, a KRISS MK5 modular handguard and an ambidextrous folding stock.

The Vector is a series of weapons developed by KRISS USA (formerly known as TDI, Transformational Defense Industries). They use diverted recoil in the form of the "Kriss Super V" system, in which an inertia block travels downwards in a recess behind the magwell as the action cycles in an attempt to offset muzzle climb (the fact that it then has to travel back upwards means this actually just creates an odd up-down oscillating motion when firing in auto). The action was patented by French designer Renaud Kerbrat, formerly of FN Herstal, while the polymer outer housing and folding stock of the weapon were designed by Magpul.

There are four main variants marketed: the SMG is the military and Law Enforcement version with a 5.5 inch barrel and select-fire. The civilian semi-auto version of the SMG is called the SBR ("short barrel rifle"). For states with SBR bans, the CRB ("carbine") version is available with a 11.5-inch permanent extension to the standard barrel - oddly referred to as a "safety extension" in some literature. A "pistol" version with an end cap instead of a stock is also available: the SDP ("Special Duty Pistol" or "Security Detail Pistol"). All civilian models used to have "/SO" ("Special Operations") appended to their designation, though KRISS USA has since given up on doing this.

In 2015, new "Gen II" versions of the original Vector models with redesigned pistol grips and safeties and compatibility with a new 9mm lower were announced. "Enhanced" versions were also made available, but these simply added accessories which could be bought separately, an AR15-style stock adaptor (provided with a Magpul UBR collapsible stock) and an angular shroud for the barrel on the CRB version (which later became standard on the Vector CRB since 2017). Post-2017 models of the Vector (often referred to by KRISS USA as "Gen 2.1") have a stock adaptor integrated into the upper housing, with a KRISS DS150 adjustable stock attached. The "Enhanced" versions of the short-barreled Gen 2.1 models have a 6.5" barrel, a KRISS MK5 modular handguard (later replaced by MK5M), and an ambidextrous folding stock. In addition to the original flat black finish, civilian versions are also available with factory Cerakote coatings in olive drab or flat dark earth. "Alpine White", "Combat Grey", "Black Camo", "Alpine Camo" and "Desert Camo" were later added. A commemorative limited-edition Gen II model called the Vector CRB Origin was introduced in 2023, featuring the "duotone" finish (black/FDE) and the skeletonized trigger of early Vector prototypes.

In addition to .45 ACP and 9x19mm, KRISS marketed Vector receiver variants for 9x21mm IMI, .357 SIG, .40 S&W, 10mm Auto, and .22 LR. The latter is called Vector 22, and is available with the aforementioned colors (excluding olive drab and combat grey). A version of the SDP called the SDP-SB ("Special Duty Pistol - Stabilizing Brace") that was factory-fitted with an SB Tactical™ arm brace was available, but has been discontinued following the ATF ruling on pistol braces in January 2023.

A third generation of the Vector was announced in 2024, with a significantly redesigned upper and lower housing. Notable changes include a slimmer design (and thus a slightly lighter weight), replaceable pistol grip, reversible magazine release, shorter charging handle, new bolt catch/release lever, angular cuts, trigger and stock, and an M-LOK handguard.

KRISS K10 with barrel RIS - .45 ACP / 9x19mm Para / .40 S&W. Multicaliber 2011 prototype; note the detachable magazine well, diagonal reversible charging handle, and lack of pins on the receiver. This is a non-NFA weapon, hence it having a safety but not a fire selector.
KRISS K10 - .45 ACP, 2013 prototype

The K10 is a second-generation redesign with alterations including a vertical charging handle, integral collapsible stock and replaceable magwell for switching between .45 ACP, .40 S&W, and 9mm Parabellum. It was displayed at SHOT Show 2011, but has not been seen since 2013; like a lot of TDI / KRISS projects (MVS shotgun, Disraptor heavy machine gun, KARD, etc) it seems to have been canceled.
