Hello all,
Just bought a Sub2K Gen 2 Glock 19 on GunBroker(only option for me) and
have already started ordering replacement parts to improve operation and
reliability.
Parts so far: Kaw Valley Linear comp, Sumo charging handle, front sight
pivot block and a Aztac aluminum trigger.
Curious if anyone has bought and installed the heavy bolt from Kel Tec?
It seems to be the last item to consider on the initial mods list so any input
would be appreciated.
I've already downloaded the "Fluff and Buff" tutorial and will be doing some
work to the hammer and sear to clean up the action.
Not sure what I'm going to do about the furniture on this rifle.
I have a StreamLight TLR-2 HL and a Magpul Angled Fore Grip I plan on
mounting to the bottom rail on the fore grip and at this time don't plan on
any optics given it's effective shooting range, time will tell.
I have seen a couple of the Sub's with Magpul stocks added on, which
looks like it might be something to consider, again, time will tell.
Any input on parts or mods for operation and reliability would be appricated.

Welcome to the KTOG forum. Shot it yet?

Not yet, it won't arrive until Thur. Three new Glock 33 round mags arrived
last night for the Sub. I already have six G19 and six G17 mags on the
shelf, so that end of the equation is good to go.
I see you list "biker" on your signature, I have a 1994 93" Shovelhead in the
garage that has way more money and time invested in it than I care to mention.

First thing you should get captain, is lots of ammo. I would not take it apart until I shot it. Also the gen 2 factory halves are held together with a compound adhesive. And they have problems with installing the stock collar. People have complained about lack of threads, and the collar coming loose.

I should be able to pick it up tomorrow, so I'll check it out. I'm starting to
eye the Red Lion rotating fore end as an upgrade, but again, once I have it,
I'll see how I like it with the upgrades I currently have planned.
Already have the ammo end well covered, I have several 9mm autos.

I haven't done any performance mods to mine (trigger, bolt, iron sights, etc...) But I do have the kaw valley and red Lion rail. I don't believe I really fit to try out the kaw valley before getting hurt, buy I should be able to get to the range next week (hopefully). Check out the Tacticool buffer tube cover. It just makes the whole thing feel nice. As for the sumo and heavy bolt I've only heard of people needing those for the 40 Cal variants.

The only thing I'm considering doing next is taking some Dane paper to the trigger and maybe getting the grip cut to allow G19 mags. Also possibly the earley flip rear sight. Mine is already sorry of over modified, but I made it into a pretty solid "active shooter" type gun. That can be stowed in a small compartment easily.

Check out the video on YouTube "how far can a 9mm kill" by iraqveteran8888. He used the sub2k and shows it can kill at 400+ yards (of you're accurate enough), so a red dot may be something to think about. For a red dot is actually go the route ArtOfGolf went over what I did. While I really like my set up it is very bulky, kind of heavy, and a bit silly looking, but still fits in the water bladder slot on my backpack. His is more practical, more compact, and a bit sleeker.

That looks cool.
That's honestly something I've done almost no research on... Slings...

From what I can see it seems the magpul skiing is one of the best right now since it can be used in a bunch of different ways, but it is very expensive. Blue force gear is also widely talked about. I have some (a lot) of research to do.

Thanks for the heads up about the vid, just goes to show why it's 9mm "Para
Bellum", who knew they could reach out that far?

I agree on the sand paper(and files), alot of ruff edges on this gun, nothing
a little time won't cure. But given the price for this, they could pay someone
to clean up their molds to prevent sharp edges, or pay some kid to at least
knock down the high spots.

Jeeze...take a good look at an old Gen1 Subbie. Gen2's are clean clean clean compared to them. Kel Tec has come a long way in the last couple of years.

Someone suggested using heat shrink tubing on the trigger. Picked some up at a auto parts and is works great. Goes without saying, keep the upper portion of the trigger clear so it won't hang-up.
