    Kel-Tec Sub2k review

    Picked one of these up at my LGS for just over $300. Went home and disassembled it, cleaned it, lubed it. Disassembly was easy once the proper procedure was determined. I put 200 rounds of WWB 9mm through it, it had no malfunctions, and was very fun to shoot. It ejected all rounds consistently into the 4 oclock position, and consistent ejection to me is a huge reliability plus. The guns sighting system is rudimentary but it works; at 25 yards I had 2-3 inch groupings, and at 100 yards 4-5 inch groupings. I believe an optic or thinner front sight blade would vastly increase accuracy. The cheek well was awkward but fine once you were used to it. The charging handle is in a different location than normally seen, but again, with practice becomes easy to manipulate. The trigger...well the trigger is not good, but that's about the only thing I can complain of.

    I got the gun as a companion to my 9mm Glocks, and I won't lie, I think it's frigging awesome for the price. I can't say it's the prettiest, or most refined, but it's simple and it seems to work well. I don't view this gun as some sort of tactical defense gun, but simply as a useful firearm that can be beat up on and tossed around, and to be honest, that's the sort of gun that gets used the most in my opinion. So for any of you that were thinking about grabbing one, I would say go for it!

    Below you will see the gun, along with a pic of it in the outer front pouch of a small hydration pack. Pretty darn small when folded.

    Thumbs up

    It is scandalous fun. For a Glock owner that already has a few 'happy sticks' laying around, it's just a no-brainer.

    They have Beretta versions as well.

    Hey maybe you guys would know,
    Does kel tec sell extra extractors and pins for the bolt? Usually when I find a gun I enjoy and plan to utilize a lot I buy a few spare parts (critical springs, extractor, pins, firing pin exc.) but it seems that all they sell on their website is the bolt. The problem is that I don't know if it's just the bolt or the whole bolt assembly. Anyways thanks for the help. Shoot safe.

    Anything you can't find on the website I would either email or call them directly. There have been a few parts that I wanted extra and inquired about via email, they just sent me a price quote for what I wanted. I have also had a few parts warrantied, just email them or call (I emailed) with what you need. They have been very good about replacing things when I needed. Hope this helps.
