Fun fact it's not a concealed weapon while in the truck because it's inoperable while folded.

Says the retard. My sub-2000 ran 418 rounds flawlessly with a high degree of accuracy the very first time at the range. Why 418? Because that's all I had with me. It's since repeated the performance several times. And the same with my RDB and PLR-16. Anyone who says Kel-tec firearms don't function is talking out their ass.

My PMR30 still gets FTFs every time I shoot it

0
Jack_HinsonTN 0 points ago +1 / -1

If I recall correctly, the PMR30 was one of the early guns they made and is part of why they have the stigma they do. My first Kel-tec was the PLR-16 which came out a bit later, which feeds perfectly fine so long as you do like the manual says and feed it brass and not steel case Russian Wolf crap. I've had it for 10 years, and have put a few thousand rounds through it. Second one is the RDB. Have had it for 3 years, run about 1400 rounds through it just to keep myself in practice. Never failed to feed, and will do 3 inch groups offhand at 75 yards using a red dot from Vortex. Last one is the Sub-2000... I have yet to jam it, even when running hundreds of rounds through (pretty easy with 33 round glock mags). It's accurate enough to shoot 1 inch groups at 50 yards from a rest just with the built-in sights. I did get the steel feed ramp and trigger kit from mcarbo for it, trigger is now 3.5 pounds, and the polished feed ramp works pretty well, although I can't really tell much difference between it and the stock fiber-reinforced version.

Seems reviews don't allign with this statement. Nither does their ridiculously small amount of recalls.. I'm good friends with a rep for keltec who originally helped source manufacturing for them. I know first hand their shit is budget to midrange quality. You do not often hear about quality control issues with their weapons. Your paying for what you get but what you get are simplified , utilitarian and niche weapons that are almost all unique, well made, well machined n nicely engineered. It's why they are so we'll liked and appreciated for their " weekend warrior/working man's fun tactical niche, interesting and sincere take on new idea weapons.

I must be the luckiest SOB in history then, because all three of my Kel-tec firearms function flawlessly. Or... You're talking out your ass based on old information from back when the company first started. I understand margins and specs enough to know that none of the current firearms they produce are problematic. Like any manufacturer, they did have issues with their initial products. But those are no longer issues present in their current firearms. Much like how Taurus was universally reviled when they first started making firearms, but then grew to be a respected handgun manufacturer, Kel-tec has improved and resolved the issues from their early attempts. You're stupid and/or uninformed if you don't know this by now.

Obviously, your problem is you think that if a company EVER made a failed or flawed product, they are a shit company. Doesn't matter to you if they fix the issues, or make products that work perfectly fine later, to you they are still a "shit company" and nothing will convince you otherwise. That's a retarded stance only an idiot would have, but hey, it's a free country. Personally I am a FN fanboi, but I don't have my head so far up my ass as to not give a firearm manufacturer a chance if they say they've resolved their issues- and independent reviewers confirm it.

I got to play with one of these fresh out of the box at my local gun shop. Neat little package, but where do you mount optics on that?

11
lolpaladins 11 points ago +11 / -0

It's 9mm. It shares magazines with my Glock 45. I use it as an actual backpack gun, if I ever needed to quickly reach out to 100 yards.

Use the iron sights. If you need more than 100 yards you need a better caliber, not a better optic.

3
LoneStarDangler 3 points ago +3 / -0

9mm is fine out to 200 yds out of a full length barrel

3
lolpaladins 3 points ago +3 / -0

Sure, and I maintain if you're shooting within 200 yards out of your collapsible 9mm carbine, you don't need the added complexity of the swivel mount and red dots and failures with batteries/electronics. What exactly is your scenario where you see the red dot being useful.

To me, this is the ultimate "truck gun or trunk gun" or gun that can be stuffed in a backback while out camping if you need to extend the range of your handgun that you use for primarily self-defense, at least that is MY use case for my sub2000. Adding extra weight or complexity defeats the purpose... For me. For literally every OTHER uses of a firearm, there are firearms that do what they do better. But nothing can be collapsed that small and lightweight while still maintaining a 16 inch barrel while taking glock mags that I would be carrying regardless.

But I'd like to hear where you think adding think adding anything to this rifle is actually improving it (other than maybe a silencer and bolt tube cover). All of my rifles are set up to have quick detach rifle style silencers and my sub2000 works well with my wolfman which can also be used with 7.62x39 and 300aac supersonic hunting loads and easily swapped between firearms. While I do have a dedicated pistol silencer with a nielson device, I don't take it out day to day and/or camping with me.

marvinthehaggler 2 points ago +2 / -0

There are optic mount options. MCARBO makes a very good one.

I went with an MLOK 45 degree mount, similar to what you would see on a 3 Gun rifle with BUIS.

Sendnudes 5 points ago +5 / -0

There is a rail and of course you would have to take it off every time you fold it. https://www.mcarbo.com/kel-tec-sub-2000-gen-2-9mm-for-sale.aspx

MCarbo sells a mount that flips to the side to allow folding.

I have been eye balling this very gun for some time in the special MCarbo mod model.

xBigCoffinHunter 3 points ago +3 / -0

MCARBO makes a fold away mount. It’s pretty nice (and a little pricey).

1
EricCharliemella 1 point ago +1 / -0

There is a company out there... Carbo (?) That has a flip up sight that mounts on the side. It swivels up when you need it.

This might be a good option as my Sub2k came through with fixed iron sights....and they are definitely not true.

There are literally hundreds of people repeating "don't shit on this guy's keltec" in their heads right now, myself included. I'm also not going to mention I have a hi-point carbine that will reliably ventilate any Maytag you come across inna woods all day long.

xBigCoffinHunter 3 points ago +3 / -0

I’m not familiar with other KelTec models but I absolutely love this gun. I have seen a fair number of critics though. Just curious, what is the major issue?

3
runonce 3 points ago +3 / -0

None whatsoever as far as I know. There's always going to be a group of people somewhere willing to shit on anything, based on anything from pure ignorance to pure snobbery, with a great majority of them never having owned the item in question. There is no "one best thing" until you start getting very, very specific on your parameters and even then there's going to be disagreements. If it makes you happy it was a good purchase. Pro Tip: Never sell a gun, you'll regret it at some point.

-1
Jack_HinsonTN -1 points ago +1 / -2

None whatsoever. The stigma surrounding Kel-tec guns comes from some admittedly bad design flaws in their early guns, causing reliability issues, minor failures, and a few major failures. This lead to Kel-tec redesigning and recreating their early guns, and implementing rigorous testing in all successive designs. As you can see upthread though, quite a few people still shit on Kel-tec guns, despite not having any experience whatsoever with the current form of them, nor any of their newer guns.

Mine was re ally accurate outside the box. I did better on the iron sights with the kal tech then with ny AR on iron sights. Thats why I loved it so much hitting metal from 500 feet away is great.

That is bad ass. I have not seen this type before. I had a folding stock 30 carbine years ago and I sold it because the action was unreliable and it needed some tlc I wasnt going to give it. What caliber is this above?

How's your accuracy at 100 yards with 55 grain?

3
Hantif 3 points ago +3 / -0

It's either 9mm or 40S&W, so 55gr is too light. 125-180gr is a better ballpark.

4 inch groups off of a rest at 100yds is common with the Sub2k.

OldbreedAmerican76 -1 points ago +2 / -3

Kel-Tec has a lot of innovative products but their quality is very hit or miss. I'd say buyer beware if you're thinking of picking one up.

3
RichardNoggin 3 points ago +3 / -0

I own this and the ksg. Both VERY solid pieces.

3
OldbreedAmerican76 3 points ago +3 / -0

If you don't already have one, I'd strongly recommend getting some kind of forgrip that prevents your hand from sliding forward for your KSG. It's way to easy to accidentally slip your hand over the muzzle on that gun.

2
RichardNoggin 2 points ago +2 / -0

I've shot it several times and you couldn't be more correct. It's a fucking hoss and you have to be so aggressive racking it that it can be an issue.

2
alfredbester 2 points ago +2 / -0

I have a Kel-Tec 380 and it's a great little gun. Much better than my Glock 42 380, which is very finicky about ammo. It has a super long trigger pull, which isn't great, but other than that, I feel better carrying it.

2
Big_Sam_Handwich 2 points ago +2 / -0

I got the rdb-c and I really like it...but your statement is true. Mine took a little fiddling around at first but she runs great.

Their designs are great but they need to refine the quality a tid bit.

4
JoeBidensDementia1 4 points ago +4 / -0

Honest question and excuse my ignorance, but that's what some would call a bump stock, correct?

8
Pray_for_Trump 8 points ago +9 / -1

No. Bump stocks allow firing multiple shots without multiple trigger squeezes. That is a folding gun.
The gun is non-functional in that position. If you have a round in the chamber it will fall out when folding it. So there's two steps to bringing that firearm to fire-ready;

  1. Unfold
  2. Chamber a round with the charging knob.

With regard to bump stocks, I've never used one, but I know how they work. I just didn't want to explain them in detail. So yea, poorly explained. Sorry fren

3
Big_Sam_Handwich 3 points ago +3 / -0

A bump stock still fires one round per trigger pull...it basically lets the rifle bounce around so the recoil pulls the trigger against your stationary finger.

I want to get a slanted sight for mine so it fully closes without having to take the sight off.

Hantif 4 points ago +4 / -0

The iron sights are solid and don't come off to fold it. Optics can be side-mounted but that makes it wider.

If you're interested in mounting a red dot optic, Midwest industries has the perfect mount solution that swings out of the way to fold and stow. I have a sig Sauer Romeo5 on mine. Link for mount below. I also use a rubber cover for the bolt tube that doesn't feel cold to my cheek. Also, link is below. With that being said, I freaking love my setup.
