    Hey guys. I just took my new kel-tec sub 2000 to the range today. I had a few jams due to a shell that wouldnt extract. I hear that this is common for new kel-tec carbines. I took it home and cleaned it up. However, I would like to know the exact procedure for what to clean it with and how. I took everything out of the gun, cleaned the parts with gun scrubber and lightly oiled them. I toothbrushed the chamber with bore cleaner, but there is still some fouling in there. I cleaned the barrel with bore cleaner with no problems. I am just wondering how I should clean the chamber and how clean it should be. If anyone has any info, it would be appreciated.

    I'm not so sure it's the chamber. I think it's more important that you clean and lube the bolt (or whatever the 2 heavy cylindrical pieces are called) so it slides easily on recoil and can easily extract the fired case.

    For cleaning my 9mm I have a bore brush, unfortunately I can't remember if it's a .45 or .50, that fits the chamber pretty well. I use Hoppes (kind of old fashioned) to scrub it out. I'm with Joe though, really clean the bolt out and very lightly lube. Check the KelTec website, they have disassembly instructions on-line. Good luck.

    When I owned a Sub2000, I used a 10-gauge shotgun BoreSnake for the receiver tube, and a caliber-appropriate BoreSnake(mine was .40S&W) for the barrel. FAST cleanup, and worked like a charm.
