I recently purchased this pistol from Chuck Malta at Kelly Enterprises in Florida.

Vector Arms

I am not affiliated with Chuck or Kelly Enterprises in any way, other than being a customer.

I originally called Chuck to order a different gun, but after speaking to him for a bit I decided to give the VKE-91k a whirl. The purchase was painless and my FFL received the gun within a week. Oh...I called Chuck on a Sunday afternoon and placed the order with him then. This man is literally AVAILABLE 7 x 24 x 365 and he wants to talk to you.

I wanted a nice host I could run with my auto sear, so here we go...it goes without saying that the images with the stocks / front grip were taken with my sear installed.

Features:


  • Anti rattle paddle mag
    Vented handguard
    RCM Cold Hammer Forged 1201 barrel
    Sear ready - auto carrier
    PTR receiver
    Three magazines
    Blackhawk sling
    Perfectly square rails
    Perfectly aligned claw mount points
    Threaded barrel
    Choice of SUO or SEF housings

On receiving the gun I noticed it was covered in a nice sheen of oil. All push pins slide out with finger pressure - NICE! I bought both A2 and collapsing A3 stocks (Chuck did require a copy of my form 4 prior to selling me the stocks, but that's good). The pistol end cap, A2 and A3 all slid on and off with firm hand pressure - no mallets needed here...again....NICE.

It is packaged well, tied down into the box to prevent slipping around during shipping.

There is a note taped to the inside of the box to shoot 200 rounds with the factory lube. It is well lubed inside with both oil and grease in the proper locations.


Comes with a Blackhawk Sling - this might be a short term deal

Paperwork












Bolt gap before AND after 100 rounds is .018"




Look carefully to see the RCM CHF 1201 stamp










Square rails - the end cap and both stocks slid on and off with hand pressure. The collapsing A3 had zero binding and functioned perfectly.


Going full auto with a 308 made me think about controllability. I wanted to be able to control a mag dump, staying somewhat close to the target...so I opted to install a PTR vented aluminum forearm with rail and grip. No mods needed...screwed in place in seconds.


I remembered having a UTG mount and Vortex Strikefire Red / Green dot, so I thought "let's see if these guys will mount on the 91k". Damn...I couldn't get the mount to work with a CA94, CA89 or Vector 93, but it slid on the 91k and locked down tight as can be in about 30 seconds. Nice.




Here is a good shot of the "meat mallet - AKA the tenderizer" It looks cool, but holy crap does it do a number on you! I'll spare you the image of my shredded shoulder after ONE mag on FA. That thing is for show only, unless wearing a jacket or other pad.










Vented handguard


She runs well. I'm happy. Nice gun. Get one while they last.

It's not like we didn't warn you... now go and either buy Bill Springfield's A-3 buffer for that axe or have HIM install it for you. You'll be able to use that stock and not commit hara-kuri on your shoulder.

The heart of any gun is the receiver. In this case, Vector built the gun from a PTR receiver. Remember, JLD, now called PTR 91 Inc, purchased the contents of the FMP factory in Portugal. FMP was a contract mfr of HK, & was licensed to make G3's in Portugal. They got all the blueprints, & molds to make the parts in the USA. Other companies in the Michigan area, & Arizona use reverse engineering to make 9mm, & .223 receivers, & parts could be a tight fit. I would expect nothing less from a gun built on an unmolested JLD/PTR receiver. I have a JLD V51P, & like the OP stated, no extra effort is needed to remove the rear cap, or pins. Quality parts get you a quality gun. Enjoy. GARY N4KVE

Shattered is correct, send your A3 Stock to Bill Springfield, it's money well spent, and you will like the A3 Stock alot more.
The pics shows that yours came with a Rhinemetall Bolt Carrier, that's a pretty good plus.
Enjoy it.

Thanks gents - I'll get it mailed off to Bill next week. I appreciate the info, since I was thinking "Gawd, I'll never shoot this gun with that stock again!"

I'm interested in one of the 93s, so thanks for this review.
I own a Vector 93 I bought less than a year ago. It's a good shooter, but not as nice as this 91k. If you are thinking about one, I would suggest considering the VKE (Vector Kelly Enterprises) variety and give Chuck Malta a call 305-923-6560 to see what the real differences are between the two. I know they are completely different guns (91k versus 93 series), but from a quality perspective, the PTR91 based 91k seems to be better quality all the way around than the straight V93.

My PTR came with that foreend. You will have to do some grinding, filing and touchup (I used Birchwood Casey aluminum black) if you want to add a carry handle. I did and it looks great

A carry handle? Pics?
Believe it or not I once did an entire "how to" online with pics but my old puter crashed and I lost the links..as well as all the work in progress pics.. I will try to add some pics of the area on the completed weapon.. basically you have to grind a little of the inside of the forend right where the carry handle tabs will go.. if you are careful and touch it up with the aluminum black inside where you grind, it will look factory. I used a cheap 4 inch angle grinder and a metal file to square it up

I took a little off at a time and tried the fit.. took about 30 minutes

That'll learn ya... buy an Apple. They don't crash. If there's a problem with a program it just quits and you restart the program. Of course as with any 'pooter, you lose whatever wasn't saved. I've been on this 2007 Imac now for just over four years and have not had one crash yet. Not even one virus. A major change for me. I used to breathe computer manuals and was a self proclaimed computer Mr Fixit. It's been kinda nice just doing what I like to do with the 'pooter and not having to do ANY computer maintenance. 6 Terabytes of storage ain't too flimsy either...

2007 4 door Jeep Wrangler Sahara hardtop, 99 Grand Cherokee, 95 Silverado extended cab lowrider, 90 Nissan 240sx, and a 73 AMC Javelin... plus a 69 Triumph Bonneville Chop and a 81 Honda 900. The Cherokee might be swapped in for a new (2013) Grand Cherokee... depends on what they come up with. The last three vehicles on the list are just toys. The Silverado has been cross country several times on the Hot Rod Power Tour as well as both East Coast Power Tours. Close to half a million miles on the Silverado with virtually no breakage.

Oh... and just picked up a packed iPad, 64 gb and 4g. Still on a learning curve... IOS is different than OSX.
