Hi,

new user here. Just got my Sub-2000 a week ago for my 31st birthday and I'm wanting to accessorize.

Does anyone have an opinion (Good or Bad) about the mag holder that Kel-Tec makes to attach to the bottom rear of the Sub-2000 stock?

I lilke the idea of having an extra mag on the gun, but don't know how functional or durable the holder is. Comments please.

Thanks,

Eugene

I just got one of those from KT along with the sling, picatiny rail, and stock extension. Out of all those items I was most impressed with the mag holder. It's very stoutly made and works well. You have to install a hard rubber mag catch and spring in it after you get it on the gun which took a little fiddling with needle nose pliers, but once it's done it works great. It's also fairly ergonomic, I noticed I could eject an emply mag from the grip and release and extract the one from the holder with my weak hand in a smooth operation.

I was least impressed with the picatiny rail, only one slot and I'm going to have to take a dremel to one side of the forward grip to get it installed, but then that's more the fault of an out of tolerance grip than the rail itself.

The sling is nice but a bit cumbersome at times. Seems to be in the way a lot.

The stock extension is kinda cheap but it does the job. Even though it looks like it was designed to allow takedown, I have to remove it to get the plug, recoil spring and bolt out. Personally I wish they would have made a stock extension that not only gave a longer pull but would extend a good 3 or 4 inches below the butt so you could get the sights up closer to your head where they should be. Ever noticed how most rifle stocks angle down?

Rifle butts angle down to help press the stock up against your cheek so you can get a firm weld.
If it angled the other way, it'd try to slip under your shoulder and underneath your armpit during recoil... not a good thing!

I was referring to the the fact that most rifle stocks begin to angle down immediately behind the breech/bolt housing, so that when you put the butt on your shoulder the barrel/sight plane is naturally pointing higher, nearer your head. Therefore you don't have to bend your head down so much to be lined up with the sights. With the Sub2000 stock actually housing the bolt it cannot angle down, so you have to bend your head way down to get inline with the sights. This is constantly making me want to bring the butt up higher on my shoulder than it should be to ease the strain on my neck. I'm sure I'm not the only one experiencing this. A thin vertical (possibly extendable or folding) butt extension to extend the butt down a few inches would allow the head to be more naturally in line with the barrel/sights. It sounds like a great project for some enterprising fabricator of gun mods (hint intended)! :wink:
