Default Anyone shoot a Kel-Tec Sub 2000?

I'm looking at carbines for HD and varmints on the farm. I have rifles, pistols and shotguns, but no pistol caliber carbines. I am fascinated with the Sub 2000 in .40 S&W since it uses Glock magazines. The disadvantage is that since it folds, you can't add a red dot or other site. I like the Hi-Point 4095 as well. It is rugged and accurate and can accept a red dot or a scope. Both have great warranties and both are light and reliable. Anyone have one or the other or both? I like the 40 S&W since I reload them for my pistols. Handy. Thanks for the input.

Never shot one. But I almost bought one until I discovered nobody had one. They are inexpensive and hard to find. I'd love to get one.

My friend has the KelTec in .40. Great gun. Recoil is more stout than you'd expect.

He has had it for at least 11 years.

I have one (9mm S2K) and have been really happy with it. It's a really handy utility rifle for anything within 100 yards. The cheapo peep sights are actually quite effective for anything within that range. I'm a mediocre shot, and peppering a 6"x6" steel plate at 100yds is a cinch with mine. It has been 100% reliable with Glock mags. Avoid the Korean aftermarket mags...using them has left a handful of scars on my ejection port.

The only negative: The blowback design results in a filthy rifle...even after just a couple mags (this also applies to the Hi-Point). I wouldn't even try running more than 200 rounds without a thorough cleaning.

I prefer the Kel-Tec to the Hi-Point, due to the lighter weight and folding feature. The Hi-Point just has an awkward, top-heavy feel to it, much like their pistols. But most owners are quite happy with both of these budget utility rifles.

For varmints- A 9mm/40sw might work just fine, but I'd probably prefer a faster and more precise rifle cartridge. An AR-15 or other 223 is pretty versatile, and on the cheap I'd look into a 17HMR.

I was also looking seriously into a Beretta CX4. I already have a Px4 .40 and it uses the same mags. I have heard good things about it too.

Default Sub 2000

I recently found the 9mm for Glock mags. The thing is a real hoot! It's amazingly well constructed accurate and light. I also got the Keltec sling which makes the carbine hang perfectly across the body.

I think Keltec is a terrific company. I carry the p9 and P11 and am intrigued with the 308 Bullpup, shotgun and 22 mag pistol. I'd suggest if you can find the Sub 2000, buy it. It's fun.

If you go to the Keltec forum you will find lots of information on mounting scopes to your sub 2000. I have a 9mm version that has been a great little carbine.
