Today I received the Sub2000/G19 that I ordered from MCARBO.
Took it to the range with 50 rounds of Federal 124 gr FMJ and 50 rounds of Federal 115 gr FMJ.
Had a little trouble sighting it in. Had to move the front sight pretty far over to the right, which is apparently common with these guns. This creates an unusual sight picture where I can see the protective wing on the right side but not on the left- took a little getting used to.
Put on a Trijicon RMR with QD mount attached to the top rail. Very unstable, definitely did not hold a zero after taking it off and putting it back on. Ordered a MCARBO mount, it is pricy, but it should be solid.
Accuracy was OK, nothing to write home about. I believe groups will shrink when I get more used to the gun.
Recoil was a bit sharper than I anticipated, much more than my Just Right Carbine, but then again, it is about half the weight.
Reliability was so-so. Out of 100 rounds I had 8 malfunctions. New round would feed into the chamber with the empty stove piped (and often crushed) behind it. I’m hoping this will disappear after break-in. The bolt seemed stiff and gritty out of the box, I lubed it before I shot it, and it seems to be getting a bit smoother. Another brand of ammo might make a difference as well.
Looking forward to putting some more rounds through it once I get a proper mount for my optic. It will be a handy little carbine once I get the bugs worked out.
