I wouldn't mind the first picture with the collapsable stock from the second picture. :evil:

Nothing is ever perfect to me.... ;)

No idea which is better, I just know how I see it. I went with a S2k. For less than the cost of the Mech-tech I have a 2nd gun which can out shoot me. After well over 3K/rds I still haven't had a problem. I did have one jam caused by the bolt jamming the case mouth of the fired round into the "body" of the S2k. A few minutes with a sharp knife and some sandpaper ended any chance of that happening again. I'd go with a 2nd stand alone gun rather than a "kit" to convert one.

Outlaws: it does have a collapsable stock.

3 gun: Good point. But I heard the sub2k doesn't handle JHP's and aluminum cased ammo well.

You mean like mine(slightly modified:neener:).

I've had a CCU for the 1911 for a few years now. Mine is reliable and very accurate. Under 2" at 50 yds with the right ammo. Kind of heavy, but recoil is very mild. If I had it to do over, I would probably do it on a Glock 21. All I knew was available was the 1911 unit when I bought mine.

I know very little about the Keltec. KTrange.com and KTOG.org are Keltec forums.

1911 extra frames are cheap and easily available, but I have read that you can get frames from Lonewolf for the Glocks. Of course, money enters into the picture and how much you want to spend. There have been several places such as Brownell's closing out the CCU's recently for well under $300. I bought mine plain and added extras a little at a time.

Mine eats 124 Gold Dot +P's like candy and at least 2 of the 3K+ thru the S2k so far has been Blazer. I know they say not to but I didn't have a manual when I did it. I didn't have any problems so I'm not sure why they say not to.

Can it take the G18 (33 round) mag?

The Sub. It folds. Period.

If you're going to have an non-foldeable rifle, why not just have a rifle-caliber rifle? The winning point of the Sub is that it folds up to 16" for storage and utility, a stowable long gun that uses the same mags as your pistol.

If your handgun gets broken or gets stolen, or you decide to sell it for a different type of handgun, the mech-tech is useless. You will still have a functioning Kel-tec, regardless what your handgun does.

A Mechtech can't fold, but it also can't do this, either:

I'll take my chances with my kel-tec. If I'm going to shoot a rifle that doesnt bend in half it will be my AK.

Gunblade,

I don't have any experience witht he factory telescoping stock, as they are new. I added mine after the AWB expired. If you decide to get use the factory fixed, be sure to get the poly filler in the first pic. Without it, the stock twangs like an AR15 buffer spring.

The sub2000 is a blowback design, much like open bolt firing smg's its not suggested you run aluminum cased ammo through it because the case might start to be removed from the chamber before barrel pressure has dropped. If that happens the weaker aluminum case will rupture and you've got a KB. Its happened before.

Yep. The Sub2k will take one of them just fine. Anything that takes 9mm Glock magazines will, even the itty bitt Glock 26. Actually even a .40S&W Glock will -take- the magazine, it just won't be very useful. :)
