About This Item

Description

KEL-TEC SUB-2000 Recoilless Charging Handle

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!

I have several MCarbo upgrades and they were simple to install and worked as advertised. This was not.

I had problems with the recoil spring which mates to the charging the handle. The lug on the end of the spring jumped across the room and I couldn't get the assembly back together. I took it to a local gunsmith and they got the lug back onto the spring, but the charging handle would bottom out before it could retract all the way.

I sent it to MCarbo. Zach and I worked through several issues. As it turns out, the recoil spring was slightly out of tolerance from the Kel-Tec factory. Zach ordered the new spring and got the rifle back to me quickly. I really don't believe that I would have a functioning rifle without Zach's initiative and his relationship with Kel-Tec.

I love how MCarbo gives you an expert single point of contact to work with. Quite refreshing in this day.

P.S. I ordered the compact muzzle brake and recoil buffer as well. The recoil is much less now. I installed the taller sights which also helped as it takes your face off the receiver tube when firing.
Great Little Upgrade!

Order this and installed it today, I watched the installation video on YouTube and it went flawlessly. Great quality product and helps with the recoil with my Kel-Tec sub 2k. Good upgrade and guilty engineering.

I purchased a charging handle, bolt tube cover, recoil buffer and muzzle break. All products were delivered quickly and in tact. I am not a novice shooter but I am at installation. I was able to follow Chris on the videos and install all parts alone. See you guys soon for the trigger package and feed ramp! Top notch!

This was the hardest thing to do so much so that I now have to take it to a gunsmith. I also ordered another spring just incase... Maybe consider selling the spring and pin connected.

review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
One of the most important considerations in upgrading my S2K was limiting felt recoil to make the rifle a more appealing option for my wife who has complained about the recoil from my AR. In addition to their charging handle, I also added a muzzle break, “Cherry Lifesaver”, MCARBO charging tube cover, and a recoil pad (sorry, an arguably more effective non-MCARBO product).

The result has been an amazingly comfortable to the shoulder solution. One absolutely HUGE innovation that I personally would not want to live without is the SS integrated locking pin that replaces the standard connector of the charging spring. This eliminates potential extreme frustration of limitless attempts to fit the pin into the hole on the flat side of the handle. One important piece of advice: Watch the installation video for tips on getting that little bad boy on the end of the spring. Challenging? Yes. Worth the effort? Unquestionably.

One final thought - the chubbiness of the handle is definitely easier on the fingers. Just be sure to release the handle when you store the rifle. I forgot to do this once and got a finger caught between the handle and charging tube as it sprung/loaded (see photo).

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.?

Hello Timothy, we do not sell the recoil spring with locking pin preassembled, however, you are welcome to send your locking pin and recoil spring to us to complete the install for $35, which covers the cost of return shipping via USPS First Class. You may be able to purchase the end caps from Kel-Tec as these are not parts we carry for resale.
