    So I'm looking to buy a Kel-tec sub2000. Problem is, that nobody has been in stock for quite some time (either in the 9mm or 40 S&W). I was wondering if production has halted on them or if keltec is no longer selling them.

    There are plenty of threads like this, with several Kel-Tec products. Basically, their manufacturing can't come close to meeting the demand for some of their products. They are out there if you are willing to wait 6 months or more, or pay well over MSRP.

    I think Kel-Tec produces things in batches. Everybody has got them, then nobody has them and the cycle repeats. Same with the Saiga imports.

    Wow, I was worried aliens had beamed them all up :), but mine is resting safely in the front hall closet ready to go. I bought this one when they first came out, it uses the 9mm Glock mag's which I highly recommend when you find one, 31 rounds per mag feels nice and comforting.

    or learn to keep their mouths shut until they actually can feed the demand

    I doubt their repair department could keep up if they increased production.

    Two of my five Kel-Tecs (P3AT & RFB) have had to go back for repair (the PF-9, SU-2000, PU-16 have not, but they've only seen much lighter usage than the other two). I love the innovation of their designs, but the execution is often lacking.

    cdnn had some at one point. I don't know about now. Keltec is probably batching them behind more visible products. Give it time.

    I read a brief opinion thing one time about how keltec's owner just wont spend the money to increase mfg capacity, due in part to fears the bottom would fall out of the market and he'd be stuck with too much factory. not the greatet strategy from a consumer point of view, but I can't say I really fault the logic from a conservative business POV.

    I've seen a few PMR-30's pop up locally on armslist.com seems one guy had purchased several and was selling "this amazing and hard to find .22mag pistol for the low low price of $550.00 FIRM." that is insane with the MSRP only being $350.00...some people

    I had to pay way over MSRP to get my s2kg17. When I want something I want it now and sometimes you have to pay. I won it in a bidding war.

    Maybe the name Sub-2000 is an indication of how many they're gonna make.

    I agree with CoRoMo, Gunbroker starting about $450. I have heard from 2 sources that Kel-Tec makes something for NASA and that's where they get their bread and butter, and make guns on the side so that may be part of the reason they are hard to come by. It sort of makes me wonder if they will have parts available to keep them running.

    If you think they are hard to get, try getting a Hi-Point in 40 or 45.

    If you read their website notes it says they expanded their manufacturing and warehouse space, and bought new CNC machines for the RFB production. Except their electricity demands exceed their available power supply. Supposedly its an expensive electrical upgrade...

    The RMR has been released? I thought it was still theoretical.
