My first impressions when I shot the Sub 2000:
Don’t get me wrong but I really like this gem of a rifle. My first time shooting before making upgrades was to learn about its stock setup.
Bang! My shoulder received a strong recoil. Not horrible but more than I expected. I want recoil reduction at the butt stock. and any other improvements to reduce recoil.
I could not easily sight the gun with my cheek on the buffer tube at the indoor gun range (lower light). In fact with my ageing sight I could not immediately determine the front sight. I was frequently seeing the Vee as the sight. The sight itself is not painted so I was unable to determine. Something is needed in the front sight to see much more contrast. I prefer a night sight of some sort.
The rear sight has too small of a whole in my opinion. The sighting system needs to be raised to get the cheek off of the buffer tube.
A lighter trigger pull would be very helpful. One that breaks clean with a short return setup.
An optic mounting system that folds away. That allows co witness with an improved night sight system for rear and front sights
To acquire a sight vision my head is placed so low on the buffer tube that my ear protection was in the way at every shot. This is very cumbersome and not safe. A cheek lift in conjunction with raised sights is needed to correct this problem.
The rifle is accurate. I was very pleased with that aspect. I want to get on to target much more quickly. This list is in regard to the speed of acquiring a target.
My question since I understand that most of these issues have been addressed with McCarbo upgrades is: How well does the new peep hole sight address raising my head from the buffer tube? What type of cheek lift is available?
What are the other options for front sights in conjunction with new McCarbo peep hole sight?
Thanks! It would be interesting to hear of your first experience with the rifle. What did you immediately think it needed. And now that you made your upgrades just how significant did those improvements help in your enjoyment of the Sub2000?
Thanks for the input!
