The Perfect Sub-2000

The Kel-Tec Sub-2000

In my latest video I explain how I took my stock Sub-2000 and turned it into my ideal compact rifle. The upgrades are discussed in detail within the video above. If you’re looking for a short written version, continue on. To name just a few changes, I have upgraded the recoil buffer, foam cover, softer bolt handle cover, aftermarket aluminum trigger/ trigger guard, and advanced trigger springs. Upgrading the trigger springs is one of the most useful changes one could make to the Sub-2000. It’s akin to changing the stock trigger on a Glock handgun.

The suppressor I use with the Sub-2000 is the Octane 9HD. The silencer is listed on JB Silencers Web Store for $735. I keep this silencer under slung upon the bottom picatinny rail of the Sub-2000 when it’s not in use. The 34mm scope ring allows for rapid attach and detach capabilities. And with the Griffin Armament tri-lug adaptor, I can attach the silencer to the gun with a simple flick of the wrist. All in all this is a neat (and quiet) little package.

As mentioned in my video, the Primary Arms Advanced Micro Dot is one of the best budget red dot sights on the market. It’s reasonable priced at about $169.99 on the Primary Arms Web Store. If you’re looking for “nearly AimPoint” quality at a fraction of the price, you should consider getting one. As an added reminder, if you’re going to run this exact red dot setup on your Sub-2000, I recommend adding a loop of paracord to lock the bolt back, assuring that your bolt doesn’t slam into the sight mount. It’s crude, but effective.
