I finally got my paws on one of these fine-looking little rifles today, and I have to say that I am well-impressed for many reasons, not least of which is the fact that it appears to be made entirely of high-grade metallic substances, rather than any kind of polymer. I like it also that the heavy barrel is a REAL barrel, not a thin-walled tube with a shroud around it to make it LOOK like a heavy barrel. AND all the controls are for real.

The guy who owns it is rich enough to have a genuine Eotech something or other on it - whatever it was, I put a mag-full into under 3/4" at 50m.

I'm definitely in love, even for the nigh-on $1400 it costs here in yUK.

I might have to sell a gun I don't use much to do a 1-4-1 on my firearms certificate.

This version, BTW, had the full-length barrel shroud that almost, but not quite, hid the muzzle brake - another quality item.

Very nice, from one end to the other.

Interesting rifle. But I recall posts from maybe a year ago, from an owner of a Kriss Defiance, who experienced a number of challenges with his Kriss.

That was me. I think i had one of the first few put out. IIRC tippman makes them for kriss. I am not 100% on that. Last time I looked there were a number of small changes to the new ones compared to mine. Better feed ramp, stronger bolt catch lever.

Mine is now humming along. I did have to work on the feed ramp, and replace the bolt catch lever when it broke. I also usually run it with a can now, so I don't have much use for the comp. The comp was the original issue with my accuracy. It was shaving bullets.

So I pulled mine out today. I put my Odessa 9 can on it. I ran through 600 rounds of ammo with only a couple of hitches. I attribute that to the ammo. Mostly a mix of whatever i had left over last fall when I loaded all the mags for it.

600 rounds fired stupid fast at my range with only 4or 5 failures. I am happy with that. Yeah I had to do some work on the feed ramp, I had to replace the bolt release. Overall I am quite happy with it now.
