Nyon, Switzerland –-( KRISS, SPHINX and DEFIANCE, part of the KRISS Arms Group, a Swiss-based firearms group, innovator and manufacturer notably of the revolutionary KRISS Super V System, SPHINX high-quality precision pistol and DEFIANCE day/night sights, contract with industry marketing group, Laura Burgess Marketing, to build greater awareness in the civilian, law enforcement and military markets.

KRISS Arms Group, the Swiss global leader in firearms innovation, has signed with Laura Burgess Marketing (LBM), a public relations/marketing firm in the shooting sports, law enforcement and military markets. KRISS designed, developed and manufactures the patented KRISS systems of firearms. The KRISS system eliminates almost all felt recoil and muzzle climb by “re-vectoring” the effects and energy of recoil gas from the traditional straight line design to an up-and-down design. The KRISS Vector SMG .45 ACP was developed in conjunction with the U.S. Army’s ARDEC and Special Operation Forces at Picatinny Arsenal. The KRISS SMG platform is used by military and law enforcement agencies around the world. Built on the same patented operating platform as the SMG, the KRISS Vector CRB and SBR were developed for responsible civilians in Basic and TacPac configurations.

At year end 2010, KRISS Arms Group purchased Sphinx Systems Ltd, a world leader in high-quality pistol design and production; it also established and launched at the same period, Defiance Systems Ltd, the group’s accessory company, specialized in innovative suppressor designs and day/night fiber/tritium sights.
