Diamondhead USA has a very interesting and cool drop-in/slide-on lightweight modular tactical handguard/rail system for the KRISS Vector CRB .45 ACP Carbine (semi-auto-only) that provides the end-user with a decent-length Mil-Std-1913 "Picatinny" rail system for tactical accessories and superior weapon ergonomics. The new handguard transforms the Vector into a true, utilitarian .45 ACP tactical carbine, while also enhancing its physical appearance.
DefenseReview.com (DR) was really blown away by the new Diamondhead rail system, which perfectly melds with the KRISS Vector .45 ACP carbine visually, and significantly enhances the weapon's appearance. It's just really slickly done. The Diamondhead Integrated Sighting System (ISS) Diamond Gen-2 flip-up front and rear back-up iron sights (BUIS) really round out the package.
Just add an Aimpoint Micro T-1 Red Dot Sight, Brownells/EOTech CQB T-DOT Holographic Sight, or EOTech 550-series HWS (Holographic Weapon Sight) combat optic, a SureFire WeaponLight tactical white light and TangoDown Short Vertical Grip (stubby vertical foregrip) (just as examples), and you're GTG (Good To Go).
