I've got a surplus of pistol magazines and was looking at a Sub 2000 as a cheap (under $400) pistol carbine option.

1) Are they reliable?
2) How is accuracy compared to other pistol carbines?
3) How much aftermarket support is out there (sight upgrades, mounts for red-dots, etc)?
4) I owned a Camp Carbine in the past and have always regretted selling it. Is the Sub 2000 a step up or down?

They are novel in that they fold and can be transported to and from a range discreatly, without freaking the neighbors out.

They can be a bit limited in useful accessories due to the fact that they fold.  Mounting different sights becomes an issue for folding it.

They give you a decent increase in accuracy over a pistol.  If you get the Glock mag version, you can use reliable 33 round mags.

I have one.  I don't shoot it too often, but I can't  bring myself to part with it due to the fun factor.

What type of action does it have? Is it SAO, SA/DA or DAO? Is it striker or hammer fired?

5) Why are the G17 & G19 models so damn hard to find?  The word once was that they made runs of one model at a time.  If this is true, does any one know when the next G17/19 run will be?  Who has them in stock NOW?



Fixed it.

I emailed them yesterday and I just got a reply back saying that they make them year round, not in batches or "certain times of the year".

I've got my dealer hunting for one for me now.

Good call.  You will like it.  I like mine as for the reasons stated above.

ARe these the same as a SUB-9? I have someone trying to sell me his SUB-9, just not sure what the differences are.
