I like the idea of a 9mm carbine. But when you look at the FAMAE SAF, the Kriss Vector, or a dedicated 9mm AR-15, the cost is high, and your use is low. There’s very little sub-gun competition in Canada, nothing in the way of courses, and you can’t take the damn things hunting. But still: I want one. It’s a concept that I can get behind.
For $500, the KPOS is a bridge. You fit your existing handgun (in my case a Jericho 941) into the chassis and bam: folding stock, optics rails, sling mounts. You’ve got a mini sub-gun.
The whole assembly is tool-less. You slide the KPOS over your pistol’s accesorry rail, rock it into the chassis, and then close the stock behind it. I wouldn’t say it’s something you can do at the drop of a hat, but 5 min quiet is all your need to get it in or out of the chassis.
I’m still just starting to tinker with this setup, but expect to see a full video on TFBTV soon. I have to mention how damn impressed I was with the initial presentation though. The case the KPOS ships in is very well laid out, and this really is a kit. Your sling, mag pouches, folding BUIS, and vertical grip are already included.
Its worth noting that in the USA this would be an NFA item: instant SBR stamp. But in Canada a hand-gun is always a hand-gun, so the certificate doesn’t change when I put a stock on it. Which is great, because while Fab does make an “arm brace” version of this kit, I can’t imagine having to actually shoot it that way.
