  • Kel-Tec Sub-2000: "Fallujah Ready" by Nutnfancy
    The little Kel-Tec Sub-2000 is combat ready. With a Zytel frame and its lightweight, t would be easy to discount this compact, 4 lb pistol chambered carbine. Don’t. After extensively testing the "Sub2K" over a period of months, it made me a believer. Apparently everyone elese as well: every TNP crew member and guest that ran this gun loved it. Chugging through well over a thousand rounds in tactical drills and a lot of accuracy tesing, the Sub-2000 has proven itself to be one of the best pistol caliber carbines in the world. If you factor in its incredible small and folding form factor and extreme value (a $300 purchase price) it’s probably the best. Reliability was mostly excellent. As indicatated in the manual, the gun does not like aluminum cased ammo. That’s a shame because it saves money and weight in the POUs I indicate in my video "Pistol Caliber Carbines Don’t Suck (Afterall)" by Nutnfancy ( However with brass cased ammo, including various JHP loads, the Sub-2000 was nearly perfectly reliable (one jam, shown). Accuracy of the Sub-2000 is outstanding. When outfitted with the Kel-Tec aluminum QUAD RAIL, attaching a red dot sight is a snap and it maintains zero. It helped the gun to achieve the excellent accuracy shown. However with this rail, the folding feature is affected as discussed. I still recommend however as sling and light attachment to the gun are simplified. It adds little to the weight and size as well. The aperture sights are adequate as they come and I like the fluorescent front blade. But even this 2nd Gen version is tedious and imprecise to adjust. Ergonomics are good but you will have to adapt to the recoil tube, its required low check weld, and the aft-mounted and reciprocating operating handle. The trigger breaks around 6.5 lbs and feels somewhat like a double action but its letoff is crisp. There is some flex in the trigger as well. Be careful of the crossbolt safety in stressed shooting; it’s easy to half way engage it and thus prevent firing the Sub-2000. Firepower in most versions is incredible but I prefer the Glock Sub2K for its ability to accept all the normal capacity (33 rd Glock 18 mags) magazines. Alll ran with 100% reliability in the gun, to included the Scherer brand. Other versions of the Sub2K allow for magazine interchangeability (S&W, Beretta, Sig). The gun is offered in 9mm and .40 S&W chamberings; I prefer the 9mm for its economy and fired out of the Sub-2000, a good 9mm load will hit hard (+P loads welcomed here). Accessories abound and some of the best are made by Kel-Tec itself. They are reasonably priced and KT adheres to its high value formula here again. Check in to the Red Lion precision and Aztac accessories as well for other forend and sighting options. They seem high quality and well-engineered but somewhat expensive. Durability promised to be high and I see no poorly conceived or executed construction features. The huge steel lugs in the gun ensure the folding and re-setup is solid and secure with repeatable zero. Value is incredible of course the Sub2K. For its price tag you will get a gun that can stand toe to toe with some of the best submachineguns in the world. Nope it’s not a full auto but rule one is hitting what you shoot at and the awesome little Kel-Tec Sub-2000 has proven it can do just that in fast paced tactical shooting. If you’re understanding of the limitations of the pistol caliber carbine in your POU, you will find the Sub2K to be an outstanding performer. It remains a standard of measure for the type. ////////////////////////Nutnfancy Likability Scale: 9.5 out of 10 (if threaded muzzle, 10 out of 10) ///////////////// Music: "Never Get Out" by Skywriter (feat.

Airsoft Squared v1.1 to be released next week

Airsoft Squared v1.1 will be going live next week:

Our objective is to connect Airsoft players and communities. We worked on 5 main points to greatly improve the service.

1. More social network features :
This is the core of Airsoft Squared. Users want to follow the activity of their network online, what they publish and comment.
– A "My Profile" button now appears in menus when you are logged in to let users access their network activity feed easily and let them interact with their network.
– We refined the wall and email notifications to now include our 2 new types of contents : News and Q&A

2. New ranking algorithm in contents lists :
We don’t want Airsoft Squared to be a static collection of contents. We wanted users to easily access the most valuable and pertinent contents.
– We added ranking algorithms in our lists to display active and trending contents on top of results.
– Airsoft Squared must be an international community. That’s why we increased the pertinence for for logged users by pondering our algorithm with the language of the user to deliver the best experience for players from every country.
– The search engine will be in evidence on top of the page to let users search for quality contents in one click.

3. Redesigned Group and Events pages :
Groups and Events are key to let blogs, teams, brands, retailers interact with their community. We redesigned them entirely to let them be this space of discussion and sharing.
– Redesigned walls for Groups and Events
– It is now possible to post News and Comment threads directly from your Group or Event

4. Question & Answers section :
Users feedbacks showed that people wanted to interact, share experience and advice. We didn’t want to add a simple forum on the website. We wanted something completely integrated with the interface. More interactivity between members is expected.
– Users will be able to ask questions and get answers about strategy, rules, legislation and get buying or technical advice.
– The Q&A is a section in itself but it also integrated with the groups and events "Discussion" tab.

5. News section :
Brands and medias needed a tool to get more visibility and to communicate with the Airsoft Squared members.
– Users will be able to publish announcements and breaking news.
– The News section has been designed in coherence with the groups and events "Blog" tab.
– "Featured news" will now find a place on the homepage.

Illuminating ideas from Platoon Stores

Platoon Stores have some practical solutions for the darker evenings:

Hi Guys, With winter and the late nights coming and the prospect of playing in the dark we thought we’d share a few items with you.

The daddy of weapon mountable lights the Surefire 6P can now be made better with the addition of the Ledwave A-49 cable switch which will give it a strobe function. This will also work with the Surefire G2 and the ledwave weapon lights like the Z-1_Kommando


We have a good range of head torches and the most useful of them all the Cliplight which will also work on your vest or glasses.


For those who like customising check out the Nextorch which allows you to programme your light levels (up to 150 lumens) or the strobe rate.

If you would like any advice give us a call, we have a fantastic range and will be able to fulfill your need.

Thanks, Pete (Platoon Stores)
