About This Item

Description

KEL-TEC SUB-2000 Recoilless Charging Handle - What's Included:

Designed to reduce felt recoil due to the blowback design of the SUB-2000. The heavier charging handle slows down the blowback momentum and decreases the felt recoil. The factory charging handle weighs 1oz and the KEL TEC SUB-2000 Recoilless Charging Handle weighs 3.2ozs, effectively reducing felt recoil by 68%! This is a fast and easy way to reduce felt recoil on your SUB-2000 while also providing a thicker diameter charging handle to provide more surface area for a more solid grip when charging and operating the bolt on your SUB-2000.

We've also Engineered a Heavy Duty Internal Lock Up feature to resist wear or breakage to account for the extra weight on the charging handle.

Just for comparisons sake, KEL-TEC offers a Heavy Weight Bolt but it weighs 14.4ozs! That's a ton of extra weight and not ideal for a small, lightweight pistol caliber carbine like the SUB-2000. 

Upgrade your charging handle and reduce your felt recoil at the same time! No need to add a ton of weight to your SUB-2000 to reduce the recoil. Add just the right amount to put the recoil in check!

                             

Frequently Asked Questions Icon

Q: I was going to order the recoil reduction charging handle, but though the added weight may slow the cycle rate in the firearm. Am I correct in my assumption or does it not change, or noticeably change?

A: Good question. No noticeable change in the cycle rate. You can still run a high rate of fire without issues.

Reduce recoil
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
I went with this handle rather than the skeletonized version. Glad I did, it really mitigates the recoil of the weapon. The tool less feature makes sure the spring lines up and catches the handle perfectly. These items make the gun feel more reliable and the materials of the parts are well machined in metal. They help turn the Sub 2000 into a more reliable weapon.
Effective recoil reduction but pita to insert
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
Really does reduce felt recoil significantly. I also inserted the grommet they sell and this combination makes a world of difference. Inserting it so the pin you add to the spring is a major pain and takes me about 10 minutes every time I clean the weapon.
Best add to my sub 2000 G2

I was amazed how much of an immediate difference this made to the gun’s operation. Makes it much easier to pull back on the charging handle and helps reduce felt recoil.
Easy install. Home run here, guys!!!

Question:
I have purchased this upgrade already and in the process of trying to install the new charging handle, I didn't get the new locking pin secured properly and now am having a very hard time installing the locking pin. In my struggle, I've lost both original spring end caps. I consider myself normally adept at doing things like this, but I really screwed up this time. I am a Vietnam Patrol and Sentry Dog Handler Veteran and a strong supporter of Veteran business's. Any suggestions, can I purchase the spring with the improved charging handle upgrade.?
