I don't know which one I want or a good price for it. I like the rifle from the looks and have never had the opportunity to hold (okay, fondle/grope) one. I may be able to order one through the place I got my P-40 (primary CCW, piss on the glocks and the others).

I don't know what to get. I have a Hi-Point 9mm carbine and it works fine so I may not need another 9mm.

I can't afford the .223 model :(.

I'm looking for something that is inexpensive that will grab me by the "you know what's" and force me to get all the other models because I love it so much.

Any suggestions on what model to get :).

First off, let me say welcome to my FFF friend. I also have the Hi-Point carbine (go see my post at "other guns") and have been thinking about getting a SUB in .40 S&W to complement my P-40. Sounds like a good plan to me, just have to decide which mags. Probably get it with mags to match the P-40 if I can get hi-caps to work for both.

Best regards, Keys 8)

USP45usp,
One of the neat qualities of the SUB rifle is that it can be used for a fast draw.
Under your jacket, a quick flip, and you've got a carbine ready to roll!

Sorry for the quality... it's an avatar from some "other" board that had ridiculous size limitations...



I think if you already have the Hi-Point in 9, I'd look at the SUB in .40... but I'd try to find a place where you could get your hands around one before you buy... dry fire it at least once. Some of the .40's have a REALLY hard trigger pull. If it's right... it should weigh in somewhere around 8lb... not 20.

Thanks All

Thank you for the welcome. I've been thinking of the .40 as a compliment to the P-40. I've been thinking of doing the same with a lever gun in .357 and one in .45LC to go with some of the other pistols that I have so that fits perfectly into my plan of matching rifles with pistols.

:D, I can just see the looks on peoples faces if I were to do the "quick draw" with a rifle :shock: :D. I have a Duster that it would fit under.

I do know one thing, if I ever get the money, I ain't going to blow it on any type of ar or ar clone (that is, after I get my AK-47), I am getting that SU-16. It looks like it takes AR mags and such.

Thanks again.

USP45usp,
Yes, the SU takes standard AR mags.
It's significantly more accurate than any similiarly priced rifle, such as the Mini-14. Easy to maintain, too.

As a proud SUB2K owner I had my heart set on a SU-16 until I had the opportunity to hold one in my hands. The "bipod" is extremely flimsy and the stock had even more jagged plastic than my SUB2K had on it when I got it. Nothing about the gun said "quality" or "attention to detail" to me.

For about $20 more than my local dealer was asking for the SU-16 ($489) I can buy a complete DPMS AR-15 upper, the matching DPMS forged lower, and 2 pins and build a nicer rifle, IMHO.

Stasher1,
The only problem with building up your own AR is that, to really do it properly, you need several tools that are exclusive to the AR-15 that most gun enthusiasts simply don't have.
As a for-instance, it's unlikely you're going to have ideal headspacing without proper equipment, unless you're willing to buy a dozen bolts or so and try one after another until you find one that's close.
Yep, you can put one together without the tools... but I wouldn't expect any more than Mini-14 accuracy.
