Quick intro to how I happened upon the S2K.
I was working at a clients house and he was home that dy. Knowing that I am interested in guns he showed me his new additions. among them was a 9mm S2K. I played with it for a few minutes and thought WOW.
I ourchased ont that nght from Budsgunshop. I also found MCARBO in the same setting and bought the Pro Trigger Pack and other things Trigger guard feed ramp and heavy recharge handle. By the time my gun had arived and I was cleared by the BATF the Mcarbo parts arrived the same day. CHRISTMAS in May !!!
@gatekeeper, @godalmighty, @Dred.for what it is worth. I am running the
MC heavy recharge handle,
MC muzzle break,
and the KT heavy Bolt (the brass one)
Right after I purchased the Sub2000 .40S&W, before I ever shot it, I bought the trigger kit and recoil handle
and installed everything.
Then MCARBO was just thinking of doing the muzzle break and trigger bar. Chris came up with the idea (I guess it was Chris) of having a give away contest to give away 10 units of each to forum members to BETA TEST them.
I was one of the VERY LUCKY ones chosen for the muzzle break BETA TESTER.
Just before that happened KELTEC barrel recall happened. I had to send mine in.
So now I had a muzzle break but NO gun. By the time I received my S2K back the BETA TESTING was well under way and pretty much settled. I did install the break and had shot it 2 or 3 times and liked what it did for controlling muzzle lift and felt recoil.
I got really busy (which is good thing) and had very little time to shoot.
Then my son in Washington state decided to move, because he was doing very well at his job.
I went out there to help him with a storage shed. When I got home the trigger bar was waiting for me. Also SHOOT POINT BLANK (SPB) had opened their new range just 3.5 miles away from my home.
I did not install it immediately because I was trying to catch up on work because I went west. That is a good thing !
When I did install it i had not read @triggerhappy;s post on polishing parts( see my posts) and the “rest is history”.
After installing the the TB I went to SPB and have now become an fixture there. I loved what the Trigger bar did for my gun!!! At SPB I ran into others that have the S2K but in 9mm. I showed them my S2K and they were amased at how it shoot in.40S&W.
While the recoil was significantly reduced with the installed parts and after learning from whoever it was that posted the info on the KT “heavy Bolt” I decided to try it also.
IMO every upgrade of the muzzle break,Recoil buffer,heavy recoil handle and KT bolt have made it such that I can shoot this well
click on picture to open it
The 50yd target was shot rapidly less than 5 seconds per group (rested) the 100yd target was probably around 8 seconds (rested) in 5-8 MPH right to left wind.
Now I can shoot the gun like discribed in my posts in the threads
“polishing Trigger parts” ,
“how low can trigger pull be dropped” and
" trigger creep elimination" all started by others.
Since I installed the Heavy recoil handle before I ever shot the gun I do not know how it shot before that. I do know this for sure every other thing I have done for the gun has reduced felt recoil to the point that I would call the felt recoil to be on par with my Savage A22 .22WMR.
