Hello,
I have been away from the forum for a while and need an opinion. Sub 9's were very desirable during the gen 1 sub2k days, with the revised gen 2's now out, is a sub 9 still worth putting the money into. There looks to be one up at a local auction in the morning and I suspect that many will not know it from a sub2k.

There were only 3500 ever made. Nuff said. But if you plan to shoot it regularly you need to understand that parts for repairs are very scarce. I think of mine as a collectible that only gets shot a few times a year now.

I wouldn't worry much about part scarcity on a sub9. Kel-tec is a CNC company that owns CNC machines and surely has the 3D models for the parts. it wouldn't take long for them to make new parts.

Then why would they publicly say they stopped selling parts to customers a few years ago so they could hold what was left for warranty repairs? I don't just throw statements like that out there to scare people off. :mad:

Some parts aren't so easy to make one off.

If you're the original owner of a Sub9 that fails, I'm not sure what they can do other than replace with a Sub2000 (which may or may not be ok where you live if more restrictions have been passed since you bought it).
