Description

KEL-TEC SUB-2000 Recoil Buffer

  • Custom Molded Urethane Rubber Recoil Buffer

Reduces recoil force of bolt and overall felt recoil by roughly 30%. Proprietary Urethane Rubber Blend offers exceptional strength, durability and abrasion resistance for this specific application. Custom Molded to the exact dimensions to fit over the SUB-2000 recoil spring, inside the bolt tube, immediately in front of the hard plastic buffer (the bolt tube end plug that's part of the buttstock design).

The SUB-2000 Recoil Buffer provides the necessary barrier to prevent the hard slap of the heavy bolt bottoming out at the end of travel. The cylindrical rubber recoil buffer acts like a shock absorber between the heavy blowback operation of the extended bolt and the hard plastic buffer of your SUB-2000, providing the necessary cushion and energy displacement needed to reduce the momentum and felt impact of the extended bolt onto the hard plastic buffer and ultimately your shoulder.

The KEL-TEC SUB-2000 Recoil Buffer will not affect your ability to lock the charging handle back into the notch on the bolt tube to keep your bolt open to the rear of the firearm. Designed to reduce recoil without compromising the normal function and operation of your SUB-2000! Tested by a dozen M*CARBO Brotherhood Members to ensure durability and quality results. All reported a significant reduction in felt recoil from their SUB-2000!

It's a simple 5 minute installation! Just remove the buttstock and slide the recoil buffer over the recoil spring. It's the KEL TEC SUB 2000 Recoil Pad for your hard plastic factory buffer.

Q: Will the Recoil Buffer work for the Gen 1?

A: No, the SUB-2000 Recoil Buffer will work for the Gen 2 only.

Q: Will you still be able to lock the bolt back with the Recoil Buffer installed?

A: Yes, the Recoil Buffer will not affect your ability to lock bolt open to the rear. It's designed to reduce recoil without compromising the normal function of your SUB-2000.

A world of difference
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
I took my sub 2000 to the range today for the first time since installing my first MCARBO parts

The reduction in recoil was dramatic.

I dumped about a hundred rounds and my arm wasn’t the least bit sore when I got back in the car to come home.

Prior to installing the buffer I felt like I had been on a long car ride playing punch buggy and losing constantly.

For 10 bucks you can’t go wrong. I also like how it keeps the recoil spring in-line when you put the end piece back on.

I got the rubber cover for the charging handle rather than change the factory charging handle because I didn’t want to fool around with that retainer piece and I was very pleased with that also.

Will recommend MCARBO for their excellent products and installation videos whenever I get the chance to.

Happy Shooting Brothers!

Can't tell much recoil difference but Sub 2000 seems to operate quieter, or maybe smoother. $10 I am in.
Recoil Buffer
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
Perfectly easy to install and reinstall when cleaning. I shoot a .40 cal Sub 2000. It definitely reduces the metalic "slap" heard at recoil. As for the 30% reduction of recoil, that is difficult for me to measure, but for the price, I believe it is definitely a good addition.
If you buy anything, buy this!

Purchased the recoil-less charging handle and butt stock pad. Went through about 200 rounds and didn't notice a significant difference in recoil. The moment I purchased, put this buffer on and went to run some rounds through my sub 2k, the difference was "night and day". Totally get this and don't expect more from the other appliances. Worth the $10.00 - big time!
A nice add to the Recoilless Charging Handle

I can't say it does much because I added it at same time I installed the Recoilless Charging Handle. For 10 bucks it certainly doesn't hurt.
