Description

KEL-TEC SUB-2000 Recoil Buffer

Experience a significant reduction in recoil force with the KEL-TEC SUB-2000 Recoil Buffer, decreasing overall felt recoil by approximately 30%. Made from a proprietary urethane rubber blend, this recoil buffer is designed for strength, durability, and abrasion resistance, tailored specifically for the Gen 2 SUB-2000.

Skillfully molded to precise dimensions, the recoil buffer fits snugly over the SUB-2000 recoil spring. Its placement, within the bolt tube and directly in front of the hard plastic buffer (a component of the buttstock design), offers an added layer of protection against the impact of the heavy bolt.

By acting as a shock absorber, the recoil buffer provides a barrier against the heavy bolt's impact at the end of its travel, offering much-needed cushioning. This energy displacement significantly lessens the force with which the bolt hits the plastic buffer, ensuring a more comfortable shooting experience.

Rest assured, the KEL-TEC SUB-2000 Recoil Buffer does not interfere with the ability to lock the charging handle back. It has been meticulously designed to offer recoil reduction without compromising the firearm's regular functionality. Our testing, conducted by a group of M*CARBO Brotherhood Members, confirmed the recoil buffer's durability and effectiveness, with all testers reporting a marked decrease in their SUB-2000's felt recoil.

Installation is straightforward and quick – in just about 5 minutes, you can slide the recoil buffer over the recoil spring after removing the buttstock. Think of it as the ideal recoil pad for your factory buffer.

I honestly didn't fire the gun before doing a full MCarbo makeover, but the recoil isn't so bad with it installed if that means anything to anyone. It's like a softer AR-15.

I was extremely impressed with the purchase process, follow up, and product. First, purchasing was easy. Good product detail available, reviews, videos/pics all made the decision easy. Second, these guys communicated every step of the way from order submittal, to shipped, to arrived (they tracked it and sent a notice when it was flagged as delivered), they even send you links to the how to videos. Lastly, the item itself is of great quality. Not some cheaply made item you get from wish.com or amazon, it really is made well. I also purchased the skeletonized charging handle, and bolt tube cover. 10/10 would recommend the products from M*CARBO, I will be purchasing the red dot sight mount in the near future.

review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
this product really does dampen the felt recoil. however, when it is installed, you cannot lock the bolt on the gun back. there is simply not enough room for the charging handle to slip into the little groove that keeps it locked open.
