Just wondering how many S2K owners out there chose not to mod theirs. I have a hard chrome Glock 17 version coming in by this weekend and am fighting the urge to look at mods.

To me the whole point of the sub is to have a light and concealable carbine and modding it would detract from both of those points.

But man! some of those mods look really good.

Instead of asking yourself if you should mod it, you should ask yourself what you can modify on it but keep it lightweight and compact? That's what I'm doing right now. I have bigger guns if I want something to mount everything on or to look scary. However, I do think the Sub-2000 can do with a bit of improvement mainly in the sight area and the stock.

I didnt change the sights, though I would if it were easier and cheaper... I put on the kt compact forend, which I don't love, but works, the utg tri rail for a foregrip, buttstock extension, and the tacticool buffer and tube cover. Oh, and an adjustable foregrip and hogue handall for the pistol grip. Considering getting the filed front sight once I have enough posts to find out how to get it, and then slicing the front ring into a semi circle. To me, if it doesn't fold, what's the point? Though some of the mods that make them unfoldable are awesome, I admit.

Most of the modifications can be reversed if you decide you don't like them. I went with a Keltec compact forend, folding foregrip, Tacticool bolt tube cover, and a Winchester slip on recoil pad. The gun is still lightweight and folds.

I am new to the Sub2000, in fact mine is at Kel-Tec getting fixed so I haven't even shot one yet. That said, I am also into SKS's which have countless mod opportunities and I've tried many of them and usually end up back to the good ole original configuration. Still, it's fun to mod stuff (including chainsaws) so my rules of thumb for modding are:

1. Try it the way it is first, before you mod anything
2. Don't ever trade, sell, give away or throw out the original parts
3. Don't do anything you can't un-do
4. Don't spend a crap load of money on mods, especially for inexpensive guns
5. Don't be surprised when you end up putting it all back the way it was
6. Get advice from people who know (ignore the idiots if possible)
7. Have fun, do what makes you happy
8. Don't worry about what the other guys think

As far as the Sub2000, I got it because it folds and it's lightweight and compact. So for me it would not make sense to add a lot of stuff, especially if it could no longer fold. I am thinking of getting a tactical light/laser combo and maybe tube cover and stock extenion but that would probably be it, no bulky forearms or grips or scopes. That's just me, nothing wrong with that stuff if that's what you want and it does look cool.

X2 above---I put a scope mount and a detachable red dot scope, a foward grip on my S2K, but I am not planning on anything else except maybe the front sight. I want mine to remain light weight and foldable. I have an M4 if I want to load that up with mods, the reason I selected the S2K was for it's portability and compactness. I own 2 but one is at KT for repairs, I also have not shot either one as of yet. Any Mods I do will be easy to reverse---in fact the forearm I cut to mount the sight was a spare I got from KT, I kept the original with the box as well as the original rear sight, the spare is the one which I altered to fold. I know the original parts and spare parts from KT are the same, just worked out that way. The parts from KT are dirt cheap not to keep originals or at least stock original parts for the future, you never know!!! I had a AK47 I sold on gunbroker a few months ago with a Tapco stock--I would have gotten more money if I had the original stock with it. So I learned to keep all original parts for any gun, including the box!!

Okay, since I had a couple subs in Glock laying around I decided to screw up one of them. It folds but not all the way.

Sure no problem I need to wait for the wife to get home so I can use her camera, mine is dead. But it only folds to about a "V" shape. And the fore grip turns 90 Deg in either direction.

Got it today!!! I don' t really see how any mods can improve the gun in my situation. All I need is more mags & ammo.

Mags and ammo..Plus 1 They are designed the way they are for a reason. I only ruined one of mine because I could. But out the box kept behind or under the seat of you car for emergency's is what they are for...okay, back pack camping too. I have one that never leaves the back seat pocket for a reason. If I get caught in protests, riots ect. And they are perfect for a brief case. Playing with them is fun. (mods) but it ain't what they are for.

other then "fondling" they also have the purpose as mentioned above, just in case it is ever needed. That is the one reason I put a dot on mine and made the rear sight foldable. In case it is needed the dot will give me quicker, more accurate shot placement. But those are the only mods I am planning (I hope)

Well, I folded and made my first mod tonight: a rubber pen grip over the charge handle! Haha. May even put that bicycle inner tube over the grip...

The Space ModulatOr (Post #1 Sub Porn Pics) pretty much got it out of my system. My other 2 are basically as issued. I do think the forearm under rail is a must have though, and should be a first purchase after getting one. For anyone who wants to keep it simple but might like to add a light or laser.
