I used these as instructed on the muzzle brake installation video They worked flawlessly. I have to say the people at MCARBO are spot on when they post a video for a product that they manufacture. If you ever need help; they are the most politely enthusiastic people that you will ever deal with.

After talking to customer service.

I spoke to customer service about my problem with this product. I will say they are responsive, however not helpful.

The response was; yeah, we know that the barrel jaws weren’t the ones shown in the video, that said you can use a cheap vice (I bought the same vice that was in the video), but we decided to send a less expensive set of jaws. We didn’t want to charge that much for a tool. So we scaled it back. Then she told me that I would have to use a much more expensive vice to make the product that they sent me work. Double the price of the more expensive jaws that were in the video, would have saved me $30-$50 on the price of the vice I needs to buy. Net! Sell the right tool!

The barrel Jaws Mcarbo sent me are NOT the same as the ones shown in the installation video. They are shorter and do NOT have the deep and shallow cut-outs that are needed to properly grip the barrel. I literally tightened the vice as tight as it would go (I am 6'1, 270 LBS.) and it still did not secure the barrel. I used masking tape and it still slipped and badly scratched / damaged my barrel. With all of that I still could not get the muzzle brake to line-up correctly. I have seen several complaints now very similar to mine so I have to wonder why Mcarbo continues to sell this misrepresented product to customers knowing that it doesn't work correctly and damages customer's guns?

Liked the idea of this but didn’t hold the barrel in place; watched video, etc., etc., first MCarbo product that I was disappointed in. Ended up removing the Handguard and using a traditional vise.

Dishonest review practice? or "honest mistake?"

They have removed my review for Item# 22229223200000KEL-TEC SUB-2000 Gen 2 Barrel Jaws (and several other customers reviews) WHY????

"I received the item...however it is not as long as the one in your how to video or on product page. The one I received is 1x1x27/32 long and does not go on the raised side...too short. So I tried it... taped barrel, put in vice cranked it down...however I could not get it to hold firmly. I think since it's too short it's not getting enough of a holding bite on barrel. I have to give this one star for now since I could not get it to hold. (I reserve the right to change my rating :) See Picture:

Suggestions?"



Thanks for declaring yourselves....

Although the barrel jaws you guys sold or completely different from the ones on the YouTube Keltec video were you install it on the sub 2 K They worked decently I just had to put rough painters tape so we could get a good grip and not slip

Greetings, M-Carbo Brotherhood Brothers & Sisters!

Let me tell you a story about these small barrel jaws. In a nutshell, they WORK! They are well made and the magnets installed in them really help when it comes to lining up the barrel of your Sub 2k in your vise to do work like adding a muzzle brake or front sight removal.

I did NOT put any tape on the barrel; now I have an interesting silver marking near the chamber end of the barrel. These marks are not visible and do NO harm.

As I stated before, these barrel jaws work!

Great but doesn't match the video

I'm spoiled by the install vids! The brake is great and installs easy. The jaws don't fit at the place the barrel changes contour, but the area closest to the hand guard. They fit there perfectly, but it may help to update the video.

I dont recommend

The barrel jaws did not secure the barrel from spinning, no matter how tight I tightened using a vise. I scratch the crap out of my barrel instead. I watch the tutorial on YouTube and did the same exact steps except the barrel jaws they had were different from the one they sent me. I ended up taking it to a gunsmith and they installed it in for me with their tools. I would still buy stuff from Mcarbo even though this product didn't work.

I received the product as promised and after watching the video online the install was a breeze. I'm very happy with the product and the look of the Muzzle Brake mounted is awesome.

The “Jaws” I received were 1’/1’ (roughly) , they did NOT have a “step-down” portion like the video shows. I was unable to get enough grip on the barrel (closed to plastic) with tape on barrel as the video showed.



I called customer service and was advised to remove the tape from barrel, the rep said the aluminum would not damage the barrel, removing the tape adds to grip.



I am still unable to tighten Vice enough to keep barrel from twisting, I’ve used pipes to add length the the vice handle

These are half the size shown in the video. If you are selling a product make sure you sell what you advertise. Not happy with them.
