I literally just rattle cans mine I grabbed some leaves and some various stuff and used a very light tan some fde and just sort of kind of Picasso it up a little bit. My mentality is a lighter color can always be made darker in a pinch

I too am wanting to paint my S2K. The factory color is Midnite Bronze and I was thinking of doing a HydroDip. Has anyone had good/bad expierence with HydroDip? I intend to wait until my internal MCarbo parts get in, so I can paint it while I have it disassembled. Thoughts or ideas welcome.

Hi. A photo of my Wolverine themed Sub 2K. A little over-the-top but it was fun to make ( and still folds and super fun to shoot!)

Thank you! Claws fully deployed. Lol. Actually makes a great forward grip and reduces muzzle flip

Thank you my friend.

Ok, i didnt look close enough at the mounting, and assumed they flipped forward, bayonet style.

You’re right. That was my original plan, and would have been the ideal. I was thinking of doing some modification of a FAB defense folding forward grip. With the rails on the Sub2k being polymer, I felt a single attachment to the rail wouldn’t wear well and other ideas I had to affix the steel claws made the gun too bulky or interfered with folding. (I would like to see Kel-Tec change to aluminum rails, kinda of like CAA did with their MCKs.)
