    Palmerwmd won't like this

    I ordered a kel-Tec Sub 2000 recently, and it came in on Tuesday. The gun store guy salivated all over it and said he hadn't seen one in 4 years. They've been that rare. He wanted to trade me out of it, but I laughed it off and took it home. The cool factor is high, since it is lightweight and folds into a package only 16" long, and takes Glock mags - great for a truck gun or to carry in a backpack or small bag.



    But I wanted to mount my red dot sight, and that's a problem. I would either have to fork over another hundred bucks for a swiveling handguard or a hundred for an articulating mount. Or just take it on and off everytime I wanted to fold the gun. And then there was the field strip, which can be real PITA. So the guy's words rang in my ears, and I pictured the
    great-looking CZ Scorpion hanging on his wall ... the gun I really wanted when I ordered the K-T.

    So I went back to the gun store, did some horse trading, and came back with this:

    A bunch more bucks, but a lot more gun IMO. I'm off to shoot it now and see how she does.

    Sorry, Fred.

    Remounted the red dot on its low mount, which makes it a perfect 1/3 co-witness with the iron sights.

    Went to the indoor range with the 50yd lanes yesterday to zero the red dot and give the Scorpion a workout. Unfortunately I didn't have the sight tightened down well at first, and I was getting inconsistent groups. When I realized it I borrowed am allen wrench and tightened it, and the groups tightened, too.

    This isn't a target rifle, and with no magnification, I'm not a target shooter, but I was easily getting 2" groups at the 50yd line. At that distance, the dot in the sight is almost half as big as the 6" target area itself, so precise aiming wasn't happening. But if I were shooting at bad guys, I would be able to bean one at 50-100 yards with little effort.

    Wish there were a compact magnified red dot that didn't cost a fortune. A nice 3-power would be perfect. Either way, this little rifle is a treat to shoot ... little recoil, fairly light weight (7 lbs.), good balance, great feel.

    Doesnt primary arms have nice magnified optics that are very affordable.

    I understand the parts are chinese sourced but the assembly is US based.

    Yes, PA has tons of sights of all kinds, as well as separate magnifiers.

    I like the compactness of the micro red dots, though, and apparently there aren't any red dots with more than 1x magnification. The magnifiers add a tube that is 2 or 3 times as long as the sight itself, and I don't want the extra size and weight.

    So I'll just stick with the sight I have. For my purposes it's entirely adequate.

    You made the better choice dude! Sorry Fred, I'm a CZ fanboy.
    Am I blessed or possessed?

    Did a trigger spring job on it yesterday, lightening up the pull. I don't have a trigger gauge, but most people report it takes the pull down to about 4-1/2- 5 lbs. It feels good.
