VKTR Industries has established itself within the intersection of revolutionary design and cutting-edge manufacturing capability. The team at VKTR draws from decades of engineering, machining, and firearms industry experience to bring consumers a fresh new take on precision armaments.

The flagship product for VKTR Industries is the VK-1, a lightweight, feature-rich, low profile, piston-driven AR-15 for the modern age.

The VK-1 uses a revolutionary low-profile piston system design featuring optimum gas port sizing and a piston assembly featuring a unique cup and spigot design that improves the gas seal and overall efficiency of the gas system. The VK-1 also includes a staged gas bleed system with two sets of exhaust ports at precisely determined distances to reduce the inertia of the operating rod once it nears the end of its stroke. The reimagined VK-1 Short Stroke Piston System includes a Fully-Supported One-Piece Op Rod and removable gas block and matches the footprint and weight of a standard DI AR-15 while providing the benefits of a piston driven system.

VK-1 is fully ambidextrous, including a patented Billet Machined magazine release and bolt catch. Both have been reprofiled and textured for the greatest ergonomics possible while maintaining a sleek, low profile. Heat-treated Billet construction ensures these components will perform for a lifetime of service even in the most hostile conditions.
