    Just fired my Sub2K for the first time yesterday. Trigger pull is pretty bad. Felt like the trigger was traveling forever before finally going bang. After some dry fire, I didn't think I'd spend the money to upgrade the trigger. Now I'm thinking it'll probably be a Christmas present to myself.

    Don't get me wrong, if you're just looking for a truck gun, the trigger's fine. You pull it and the thing goes bang, sending a projectile at the point of aim. It's just a long way to get to the bang and not necessarily where you think it's gonna happen. I think I'll enjoy the thing even more after I do the trigger.

    Mine averages around 8#. Got the Carbo kit, but haven't had a chance to install it yet.

    Mine was pretty bad, but I also acknowledge the fact that I'm a trigger snob. I change most triggers in my guns. However, after a bunch of dry firing and shooting a match with the stock trigger it actually got pretty good. To the point where I was considering not installing the MCarbo parts that I already had in hand. I installed them anyway.

    Tip: don't just install one set of parts. If you have the intention to change out a number of internal parts have ALL of them in hand and do it all at the same time. Trust me on this, opening and closing the sub2k is not the most pleasant thing you'll do and you only want to do it once.

    Having watched the disassembly video, I'm inclined to agree. Looking at doing the full monty just to avoid having to open it up a second time.

    My sub trigger pull does not bother me at all . I kinda like some what of a heavy trigger. I fell safer with it giving my personalized handling of most firearms.

    I am kind of picky about my triggers -- I want a small movement @ a light touch = bang on my guns. That said I have shot a lot of subs (many of them from members here) and the trigger is fine. Its got a fair bit of takeup but its not really very heavy. Takeup can usually be fixed up to the point where it interferes with reset, usually for minimal effort. Its better than most of the DA/SA pistols I liked when I was a lot younger and my hands were a lot better. Its a lot worse than my SAO pistols. For whatever that is worth to you.

    I enjoy modifying and improving everything except a self defense firearm. Having a Sub 2K for the range would be great but I bought mine for protection. I follow Massad Ayoob's advice.

    Actually, I'm pretty accurate with it stock. If the trigger is so bad on a self-defense firearm that it needs modification I will buy another gun that comes with a satisfactory trigger.

    Don't get me wrong, I have range toys that I love. Maybe I should have 2 Sub 2K's - one for fun and one for....

    The trigger and the feed ramp are what most folks do to really get it firing on all cylinders.
