Default Kel Tec Sub 2000 Carbine

I went to the range this morning and was shooting a Vecter .45 that my buddy rented and loved the way it shoot and felt. Also because it takes Glock magazines. I went home and started looking at prices on some other weapons and i came across the Kel tec sub 2000 but im looking for one in 9mm because i can use the magazines that i already bought for my oldladys Glock 17. I was just wondering if anyone has seen this gun or shot it. Thanks for input..

I've shot it alot. Even got it to bump fire.

The sights suck. I have a hard time getting down to the sight plane. They could've been a touch higher. Trigger is heavy, but expected from KelTec.
The best features are glock mags and being able to fold for storage.

Downside- finding the SOB in stock anywhere ... for a decent price. There is such a huge demand, some dealers are charging hundred dollars over msrp. Then some douchers are trying to get $500 for them!

Yeah I saw one in 9mm, using beretta 92fs mags. I really like it, easy to transport, fun range gun - and I'd like it as a carbine. But its a bit pricey up here too - as much as $600 - and so I'll be waiting.

Apparently if you pull the trigger while the slide is open it disengages the hammer - which I hear is annoying to get back into place. But aside from that I hear from everyone that they like it.

Like I said, I like it, I'd love it to go with my beretta, but for the price I'll wait.

There are some good after market upgrades available like an aluminum quad rail to replace the fore stock and an aluminum front sight. With the quad rail you can use a quick latch red dot. there is a good write up on Box O Truth.http://www.theboxotruth.com/
Keep in mind you wont get a large velocity increase with the carbine. The semi auto cartridges are too efficient.

Im just looking for a fun range gun thats not to pricey. And i have a **** load of 9mm ammo and if it takes glock magazines they will also work in my oldladys glock 17 so we will have a stock of magazines if needed. Thanks for the input.

It's gonna be easier to find that proverbial needle in a haystack than it would be in finding a NEW Kel-tec sub 2000 9mm.
We're all waiting for that next batch release from Kel-Tec.

For what it is worth I have seen a few pop up on Gunbroker.com from time to time. Usually they are lightly used but if they are new watch the price... As stated before some people are gouging ruthlesssly.

Im sure im gonna be getting the just right carbine 9mm. Its a little more expensive but from what ive seen its well worth it. So thats gonna be my new carbine. Minus the optics and bi-pod/light. Im gonna go with basic iron sights and a fore grip, maby a fore grip that can pull out and be a bi-pod. I dont know yet. Only my bank account knows for sure.

The Kel-Tec is running $500 and up on Gunbroker, NIB. You can get a Just Right 9mm carbine for under $600. So there's not that much difference.
