    Kel-tec Sub2k problems!

    Hey guys,
    I picked up a new Sub-2000 (Glock 17 model) about 2 months ago but fired it for the first time this past weekend. I know, owning a new gun for two months before pulling the trigger really should be a sin! Anyway, the rifle wouldn't "cock", it would feed, extract and eject but the trigger wouldn't engage. After releasing the bolt prob. 10-12 times it finally cock and I was able to fire the rifle. I finished the first magazine, inserted the 2nd and continued firing. I thought maybe it was me (?) and not the gun. After firing a few other other guns I went back to the Sub and the problem started all over. Any ideas on what could be causing this? I bet I'm about to experience the hassels of sending a gun back to its maker. Thanks in advance for any help or ideas.

    I'll bet you are too.

    I'm sorry to hear about that, but I don't expect a $300 Rifle to be a dependable life saver, just a "fun" toy. I have one, but it in no way fits in to my defensive plans.

    Let us know how the manufacturer is to deal with. I hear they are alright.

    Check out KTOG.Org - Kel-Tec Owners Group, the guys there are very helpful and there's a ton of info on the SUB-2000 and all of the other Kel-tec guns. If you do have to send it back to Kel-tec you can expect excellent customer service and a no questions asked warranty.

    I recently traded away a 9mm SUB-2000. It was a great little gun, very reliable and very accurate. I often carried it my gear bag when on patrol. I had no trouble qualifying with it on our patrol rifle course and it had proven itself trustworthy.

    Good luck. I had similar problems with mine. I bought one years ago and the first response from support when I called was to send me a little metal clip that Iwas supposed to attach to the ejection port and to use +P amm...yeah that'll help...NOT! Next response was to send it back for inspection and repair. Did so and it worked ...for about 2 weeks. Next response was to send it back again....at this point I was pretty fed up, but I didn't want to sell it to some other poor schmuck so... I killed it...permanently. It's amazing what a little thermite can do.

    Now, to show how STUPID I am, since they were cheap and all...I went out and bought another one about a year later thinking...they've got to have all the bugs worked out by now...nope...FUBAR!

    One has to think...if it's really that cheap and it's such a great deal...what corners got cut? Just saying...
