KelTec Announces Recall of Certain Sub-2000 Rifles

KelTec Firearms has announced a voluntary recall of certain Sub-2000 (aka Sub2k) pistol-caliber collapsible rifles due to a potentially dangerous condition. While, thankfully, we escaped our personal firearms being subject to this condition, many others are still out there.

Sub-2000 owners can check to see if their firearm is subject to the recall by entering their serial number(s) on the recall page or by viewing the list of all affected serial numbers.

From KelTec:


We have recently identified an issue with the heat treatment of certain steel tubes received from a third‐party supplier from which the barrels for a limited number of Kel‐Tec SUB‐2000 rifles were manufactured. This could potentially cause the barrel to rupture when a cartridge is fired and could result in serious personal injury. The safety of our customers is our primary concern, so Kel‐Tec has voluntarily initiated this recall because of the possibility of a barrel rupturing.

This recall only affects a portion of SUB‐2000s that were manufactured in 2017.

All costs associated with the recall of your firearm shall be covered by Kel‐Tec.  

To check if your firearm would need to be sent in for barrel replacement enter your serial number into the provided field below. Refer to the image at the bottom of this page to help locate your serial number. In addition, if you would like to view a list of all affected serial numbers, Click Here

    I recently bought a sub 2000 serial number XXXX
    Does this fall in the category of your recalls

      Hi, Jeremiah. Since this is a public comment, I’ve obscured your serial number in case you don’t want everyone seeing it. The serial number that you posted IS subject to the recall. You should visit the page shown below, type in your serial number, and select which method you want to use to get your shipping label to send your Sub2K back to KelTec.

    Do yo offer a more accurate barrel or modifiacation to make this pistol more of a target weapon? I’m used to shooting a target pistol and your accuracy is way off for a target gun. Surely you have improvement for the pistol. I love everything about it except the accuracy. I have a browning challenger and bukmsrk that will eat it’s lunch. I don’t want to get rid of it but I may have to excersize my warranty if there no cure.
