Sorry for the long story here… A buddy of mine got me interested in the sub2k. A local place had a multimag version so I jumped on it quickly and bought it. After the fact, I realized that “multimag” means you can change out the mag releases so you can use swap mag releases for your particular needs. I did NOT know that you needed a whole new grip if you want to use Glock mags.
I have a Ruger 9mm pistol. Again, after the fact, I find that there are no Ruger mag releases. So now my dream of using my pistol and sub2k combo and sharing mags is still a dream.
Right now I have Glock 22 but want to get a Glock 17 slide for it. I believe I can simply remove the Glock 22 slide and put on a Glock 17 slide and go from shooting 40cal to 9mm. Glock 17 slides are tough to find at the moment! I’m about to look into a Glock 19. So that gets me closer to the “one mag to rule them all” configuration.
My understanding is the only way to get a Glock mag in the sub2k is to completely change out the grip to a Glock grip. The Glock 19 grip gives you the ability to use the shortest Glock mag - 15 rounds. The Glock 17 grip allows you to use Glock mags from 17 rounds and up. Because the Glock 19 is a compact frame you can’t use those 15 round mags in your Glock 17(too short).
So my plan is to send my multimag sub2k back to Kel-Tec and get the Glock 19 grip(currently out of sock!!!) installed for $40. I’m going to include $400 worth of MCarbo upgrades with it. My thought process is if I get the sub2k with the Glock 19 grip it will allow me to use the smallest to the largest Glock mags. I could get the Glock 17 grip and would be limited to 17 round mags and higher.
Apologies for the long message but I want to make sure that I have this all right before swapping out the grips. Thanks!
