    If there is anybody who has a sub 9 and has taken pictures of it disassembled I would greatly appreciate it.
    Plus if anyone can just take pictures of the last shot bolt hold open mechanism that would be great too.
    Has anyone figure it out or thought about incorporating a last shot bolt hold option on the sub2k?
    I would like to see how it was set up on the sub 9. I'm assuming it was the receiver or the buffer tube because on the sub 2K would be impossible to mount it on plastic

    You are in luck!
    I had a 9mm showdown at the range today.
    And I brought the Sub-9.
    Here's a shot of the bolt stop.

    Thanks for the pics. So it looks like a bent hardened slider piece of metal in a channel that is embedded in the side of the receiver? Are there springs of any sorts or detents?

    Yes, there is a spring that holds it out of the way until it is contacted by the follower on the empty magazine.

    Wait, there's a last round bolt hold-open on the Sub2K? Is that something on the older generation that the new Gen2's don't have? Because mine certainly has never done that, and I've never seen any bits inside there that would enable it to do so. :confused:

    It's only on the sub 9s not the sub 2000

    Ah. My mistake. That's what I get for posting before my daily caffeine jolt. :D
