Preparations for a very uncertain future. . .

Kel-Tec Sub 2000 Project Complete!

A few posts back, I posted a picture of my Kel-Tec Sub-2000 carbine and extolled its virtues as a ‘trunk gun’.  Well, it’s an even better trunk gun now.


Voila!  Gone is the boxy stock plastic fore-end and goofy plastic front sight post in favor of a light weight, aluminum Red Lion Precision railed fore-end and a Bushnell TRS-25 red-dot sight.  A Limb-Saver recoil pad has also been added along with a rubber cheek pad on the buffer spring assembly and a 33 rnd factory Glock 9mm magazine.

Below is a closer shot of the fore-end and Bushnell red-dot.


Sure looks cool, PP, but hold up a second.  You said that one of the advantages of the Kel-Tec sub 2000 was that it folded in half for storage.  How can you fold your modified Sub 2000 with that red-dot sight sitting on the rail?

Oh, I forgot to mention the best thing about the Red Lion Precision fore-end: it rotates!  In the above picture, note the two knurled rings.  A quick turn of the forward ring loosens the rail and allows the user to rotate it to any number of indexed positions.  Reversing the procedure returns the fore-end to its indexed position and a perfect hold on zero!  Although the picture below is slightly blurry, you can see the fore-end rotated 90 degrees clockwise and locked.  How cool is that?


The final pic shows the rotated fore-end, Bushnell still mounted and perfectly zeroed, now folded in half!


How awesome is that?

The red Lion Precision fore-end was approx $140 and well worth the money.  I’ll probably add a flip-up front sight for peace of mind in case the Bushnell goes south or runs out of juice.  This carbine now fits in an inconspicuous normal sized laptop case or carry bag.  The mind just boggles at the possibilities.

Be Safe.  Be Prepared.

  1. Very cool! What is the brand/size of the butt pad?

    • It’s a generic Limbsaver (brand name) rubberized butt pad. Works very well and was about $10 – 12 bucks, if I recall. The more I use that little Kel-Tec, the more I like it!

  2. Cool toys you have access to yet I’m happier with a pump shotgun with #2 buck.
    You don”t need to be good with a shotgun to make someone duck and nothing turns guts to water as the double crunch.

    • Yeah, I hear you and agree. For home defense, it’s the best, but the fold-able Kel-Tec will be more of a back seat gun with lots of extra firepower should I find myself in very bad situation. I’ve got a Remington 870 for the house.

      • Cool.
        Just stock up on 3″ #4 buck before everyone else does!
