    My LGS has a 9mm Sub 2000 set up for S&W mags for $389 that I'm thinking about picking up. I'm going to be stopping back in a couple days to check it out. I believe it's new but I didn't ask. Is there anything I should know about this rifle or any thing I should be sure to look at?

    Thanks for any insight.

    That's a really decent price. Is it a Gen 1 or a Gen 2? The Gen 1's are much more available now that the "improved" Gen 2 is out.

    If it's new, then there's not much to look at besides the generation. If it's used, make sure it isn't cracked or worn at the breach where it folds.

    thats the multimag version will run beretta92, S&w 59 series, sig 226 and if its a gen 2 now M&P mags. if you get it the mag catch can be ordered from kt to match whatever might be your mag of choice.

    Because it is the multimag version it will NOT work with glock mags.

    I'd do it!
    Gen 1 = S&W 59 series mags,
    Gen 2 might be M&P mags by now, but either is great.

    Fair Price, try and get a discount :D

    Only thing that I noticed when handling one was that I had to really get my head down to use the sights. Neat gun, I would do it.

    <nods> That's a recurring complaint about the platform.

    Went and looked at the Sub 2000 again after work. It's new, but it's a Gen 1. I'm going to pass on it for now. Looks like there might be some problems at the girlfriend's work.

    I would wait and get one for the Glock mags. And then one of the 50 rd drums!!

    They're trying to get one in that takes the Glock mags. Easier said than done though.

    The Sub 2000 is a great concept and an accurate piece, but it doesn't work for lefties. I usually caught brass in the face when testing a Sub 2000.

    Good to know, considering I'm a lefty.

    Yea it seems if you google that lots of info comes back about not good for left-handed shooters.

    I guess you may have to try a Beretta! :)

    Ever think about adding a brass deflector? :rolleyes:

    What does that have to do with buying a Subby??? :p

    Nothing any more. The problems have been worked out.

    The Sub at the lgs had one issue that seemed odd, and maybe it's normal, but when you fold the rifle the locking points on the sight and stock don't naturally line up. You have to apply side pressure and guide them to line up.

    Do they make a brass deflector for the sub guns?

    That is because the receiver is either WORN or the screws are LOOSE.
    Most guys loc-tite them. So far I just use my Wheeler FAT Wrench.

    Not that I know of, but it would be easy to build your own! :D
     
  19. That's normal on every Gen 1 Sub2K that I've handled.

    Get the Subby. I'm a lefty and ejected brass has never been a problem for me. Half the fun of going to the range with it is watching people's reactions when I open this briefcase and unfold a carbine. Mine's a Gen1 configured for Sig 226 in 9mm.

    on the gen 2 models they changed the ejection port size and that has made it eject differently for lefties or so I have heard.

    The sub2k not locking straight seems to be perfectly normal and seems to have no effect on actual accuracy of the rifle.

    The gen 2 is enough of an upgrade that I'd wait also the stock is adjustable for length of pull, the front sight post is metal instead of polymer, the barrel is threaded, and it has rails which are debatable on their usefulness or not being that they are on a folding carbine.
