Kel-Tec Sub2000 Project – Making a Good Trunk Gun Better
About a year ago, I bought a Kel-Tec Sub2000 at a gun show. The Sub2000 is a light weight, fold-able, pistol caliber carbine. This particular version utilizes ubiquitous 9mm Glock 17 magazines. My intent was to use the Kel-Tec as a ‘trunk gun’. Now, this term has lots of meanings to lots of people, but to me it means a gun I could conceal (legally) in the trunk of a car, or in my case, the rear seat/storage area of my pick-up truck as a back-up weapon to my daily carry should the situation warrant. If you think this is ‘excessive’ or ‘over the top’ – you’re reading the wrong blog or you’ve never been in a ‘civil disturbance’ ( spelled R-I-O-T). I live near Miami, FL and have seen several.
At the range, the Sub2000 exhibited reasonable accuracy, but impeccable dependability. Right out of the box it ate FMJs and JHPs with aplomb and without a jam or misfeed. It shot about 6 inches right and 3 inches high at 50 yards with the somewhat ‘cheesy’ red plastic vertical bar sight in an equally cheesy plastic ring on the front of the barrel which also serves as a locking device when the carbine is folded in half. Basically, I like the gun, and having now fired it, thought it could serve the purpose, that of a trunk gun, quite well – if I made a few improvements.
In a post later this week, I will show you the improvements I made to the Kel-Tec. I think you’re gonna like it!
Be Safe. Be Prepared.
