4 Light Picks For Kriss Vector (SBR & CRB)

Olight Odin Mini


Why the NEW Odin Mini is beating Surefire Scout– The new Olight Odin Mini fits on the KRISS Vector as long as the pressure switch wiring is done correctly, and it provides the shooter the highest lumen output among its competitors (1250 lumens and 14400 candela)

Included Magnetic Pressure Switch - The magnetic Push N Lock pressure switch can now be locked in place simply by pushing the anti-slip knurling ring in place without any tools. Recommended mounting the pressure switch on the top rail or on the side of the Kriss Vector receiver.

CQB effective beam pattern - The Odin Mini has a similar beam pattern to the full-size Odin. You get the hot neutral white center spot that has a throw distance of 200 - 240 meters on the highest lumen intensity with 14400 candela.

In pitch black outdoor CQB & mid range environments, we are very happy to see that the light has a tight spotlight alike beam pattern that is beneficial for illuminating long-distance targets

When mounting the light on a short barrel Vector be sure to clear the muzzle to avoid projecting muzzle shadow.

The Olight Odin Mini is only around $135 if you shop on OlightStore.com if you use the Exclusive 10% OFF codeOLIGHTSTORE10

Surefire X300U

If you had to pick the most durable weapon light on the planet for the Kriss Vector, the X300U is the one.

When using the X300 on the Vector SMG, its best to mount the light on the top rail, and use dedicated Surefire XT07 pressure switch taped on the right side of the gun, and also activate the light with your thumb.

The X300 ultra model produces up to 1000 lumens using the TIR flood lens design, which is great for max situational awareness.

The X300U-B also features the T-slot mounting design, which allows the user to mount on any rail including ones that are out of spec.

In the next section we talk about how to mount everything for the best ergonomics.

MODLITE Or Surefire M300

The Surefire M300U Scout light is compact and great for long guns and SMG in general. It's the gold standard for all miniature style weapon light on the market.

It runs on a single CR123A battery, which can produces up to 500 lumens of blinding light to lit up a dark area or to impair the threat up close.

It comes with integrated picatinny rail mount Depend on how you setup your Kriss Vector, the M300U can be mounted on the top rail and side rails.

The best thing to do is to mount the light on a angled light mount facing downward.

Whether you grip the Vector using a vertical grip or by the receiver, you can operate the light using the tailcap or pressure switch.

Streamlight TLR 2 HL G

Streamlight TLR 2 HL G

The TLR2 HL G rail mounted flashlight comes with a (<5mW Class 3R) Green laser and a 800 lumen white LED light.

What’s cool about getting the TLR2 HL G for the Kriss Vector is the added laser helps with close range acquisitions without looking through the optic or estimate holdover.

Mounting the laser on the side rail is recommended because it is closest to the axis of the bore without TOO MUCH offset.

Just like the Surefire X300U, you can purchase add-on pressure switch to the gun to make light activation & grip ergonomics consistent and effective.

If saving money is important to you, and also want something like the Surefire X400 on the Vector SMG, then the Streamlight TLR 2 HL G is the product you don’t want to miss.

Kriss Vector Handguard Accessories The new line of Kriss Vector comes with extended MLOK rail, which is a huge rail space improvement for the Kriss Vector CRB models.

More rail real estate for mounting lights, lasers and other accessories.

Use Pressure Switch

The best pressure switch we have found so far without mounting it on the vertical grip is the Unity Tactical Hotbutton. Users can operate the light switch without interfering with the side charging handle.

KRISS VECTOR SBR Light Mount Options

NOTE: Mount light on the right side of the gun to avoid interference with the left side charging handle for short SBR models

THORNTAIL X light mount

Offset pic light mount

For short SBR models, there isn't a lot of space to mount the light, and the only spot is the top rail and the right side rail.
