Just picked up a used one (300 rounds), and these have been a PAIN to find. I wanted one with the Sig mag catch, but settled on the S&W mag catch. Which I'll replace as soon as Kel-Tec makes more parts... Lucky me though, it came with a Red Lion fore-end and sight! Definitely must-have options if you use something other than the sights, as long as you don't mind the weight increase.

Picked up the 9mm Glock version at a gun show a couple of weeks ago in the Peoples Republic of Maryland. Have fired about 200 rounds through it and have found it to be reliable and extremely accurate at 25 and 50 yards. The front sight looks flimsy, but it works. Can't ask for more.

Often over looked in the examination of this or other P. C. Rifles is the fact that they are squarely in the PDW classification. If you want to have guns in your battery for arming responsible adults in an emergency you will do better with a gun of this class. The M-1 Carbine was developed as a light gun for minimally trained personnel replacing the 1911 for those needing effective but occasional defense.

I have one in .40 Glock, I waited for a whole two weeks right before Xmas 2012 to get it from B&H Gunrack in FL. paid $300. This was during the big flurry after O got re-elected so there was no worse time to get one. If you really want one go there! More fun than a barrel o monkeys.

Great review of a light, tight little package. I love my Glock 17 9mm version. It shucks every cheap round of bulk range ammo I feed it without complaint with fantastic offhand accuracy. This gun is a winner.

Check out TheKTOG.org for Sub2000 forum, FAQ, good people. I've had a .40 Glock S2K for a couple years. Very reliable out of the box and at this point heavily modified. I love it and always bring it on road trips where I want more than my CCW Glock(s) and don't feel like packing an AR. Fits in any ubiquitous laptop bag or backpack and turns standard pistol rounds and magazines from 25 yard useful range to 100 yard plus.

Great little carbine that fits in my small backpack or computer bag to compliment my Glock 17 9mm and still have plenty of range. Length of barrel adds plenty of extra power to 9mm. I use the regular 17 round mags but keep the 33 rounders in the bag with it.

Been trying to get a PMR-30 for years. Now when I see KelTec in the title, I just go on to the next article. Kel Tec needs to work on meeting the demands for guns they make instead of wasting everyones time with new models that you cant get.

Have had one in 40 s&w since they first came out. It loves Speer 165 Gold Dots and gives them 1346 fps average.

I have had a green parked 9mm 2000 for about 12 years. It is a fun rifle to shoot. I have the S&W model and a S&W 5906 for a grab and go pair. I always take my 2000 with me when I travel tucked by my console. Shooting the 33 round mags give you lots of accurate firepaower. Sometimes I wonder if they will ever empty the mag. My 2000 likes the 124/125 rounds. They can be FMJ, HP, or hard cast lead. You can't go wrong with this "grab 'n go" rifle.

I've had my Glock 19 model for 8 or 9 years. It took about 100 rounds to break it in. Since then it has been flawless. I've used it as my truck gun, packed it for a couple of extended hikes in the mountains and spent some good afternoons just plinking at the range. It's a handy little rifle that you can carry anywhere and it shares mags with my pistol. I keep a 15 round mag in the rifle and two extended G18 mags in the bag. That's 81 rounds and a rifle that fit in a 17 x 9 case or in a day pack with a water bladder and trail food and a first aid kit. It's pretty handy if you ask me.

I bought mine new from a local shop about 5 years ago..approx $280.00 OTD. During the first year I put about 10k rounds through it..NEVER had any problems! Using only Glock 10 round single stacks that have been modified to 5 rounds for hunting, G17 and Glock 33 round magazines. I love it!! nice and compact to tnrow in a backpack. couldn't and wouldn't sell it..even during with 'panic prices'..just can't!

My experience is that it is finicky about ammo. It's only reliable with Federal or Blazer, that said it is a great little addition to the handgun when things go south. Same ammo, same magazine, now you've extended your accurate range! Red Lion Precision makes a rotating forend and AR front sight replacement, mount an optic to overcome the factory sight deficiency and still maintain the folding ability. Pricey, but all good equipment is.

I love mine also, I bought a cover for the tube and a recoil buffer, and installed both of them myself, it was that easy to do. The recoil buffer helps a lot with recoil and to control the gun.

3 years of fun so far. Added a few mods. The only one that was a must was replacing the front sight with a Red Lion. A bit spendy but well worth it. It eats anything I feed it. It's on a diet now due to lack of ammo to feed it, Accurate and fun.

I've got one of both 9MM and 40. and they are both fun to fire. Never had a miss-fire or any other problem. I also have a Glock 33 round mag for the 9- works fine. Ps. Sorry Ed. Not for sale.

Kel-Tec. Long on promise, short on delivery. Anyone remember the PMR30? Stop innovating long enough to actually produce something.

I have had a 9mm for about 3 years, and I love it. The only problem I have had is with the first magazine I bought, and that's Glock's fault, not Kel-tec. For what it's worth, I love my P-3AT, also.

Owners of this should look into the compact, round handguard for it available from Kel-Tec. Much more comfortable than the shoebox that comes installed from the factory.

I have a sub 2k Not reliable. Even using factory glock mags. I Keep calling to get repairs on it (the barrel has become loose from the receiver) But no one answers my calls.

I've had a Sub200 in .40 Glock for two years. It has done everything I have asked and more. I've never had a misfeed, and my big mags (22 round) are cheap Korean ones. I tell people the recoil is liken to a staple gun, nothing more. I've fired this out to 100 yards and grouped within 3" groups. Overall, it's a nice plinking, home defense, bug out weapon.

I have heard that this is a great rifle. I have been trying to find one in a gun store for almost a year, with no luck. I would have better luck finding a unicorn. Sub2000's on the used market are selling for twice the MSRP. I would like to see Kel tec get their act together and resolve their significant production/supply issues before this rifle gets any more publicity or hype. It is like rubbing salt in the wound. Review...it's a great rifle, but sorry you can't have one!

Bought one from a friend and had nothing but trouble with it. Varied ammo and always jammed. Short of going into custom modifications I couldn't stand it. Rumor had it that only single stack mags would run through it after perusing the forums for Kel-Tec. Their latest version may have solved all the 1st run problems? It was quite accurate when it did shoot though. Sold it.
