Been having light strike issues on my 9mm Sub2k. Anyone had similar issues? advice?
@JeffBailey Welcome to the Brotherhood. Don’t forget to go to the First Post Here: Introduce Yourself! thread and say Hi to everybody.
Have had no light strikes with my S2K in a few years. Try a different brand of ammo. See if that helps.
None here either goes boom every time. And welcome to the brotherhood!
What brand ammo were you using when you had the light strikes?
Welcome to the MCarbo Brotherhood. If you had not performed any modifications and it is all ‘factory equipment,’ I would also suggest using different brand ammunition. Make sure that you are also using non +P loads (per Kel-Tec) until you get more familiar with ‘the habits’ of your firearm. Good luck and happy shooting, brother!
@JeffBailey welcome to the forum jeff
@JeffBailey Welcome to the Brotherhood Jeff. Check your bolt’s firing pin hole for built up crud. Stay away from steel and aluminum cased ammo, it’s not recommended by Kel-Tec.
I’ve mixed it up, brand of ammo does not seem to matter (federal, federal american eagle, fiocchi, etc).
Will do. I don’t use the alum/steel cased ammo. Ammo choice soes not seem to be the problem as it occurs with several different brands. I have looked over the firing pin & cleaned it. Maybe I need to revisit that option
@JeffBailey Have you replaced the O.E.M. springs with MCARBO ? There has been several old posts of members having a light strike and when they put the original hammer spring back in every thing was OK. Sometimes you get a weak one.
I had one light primer strike with my S2K. It was with FiocchI ammo.
I have the MCarbo spring in there, It was working fine for quite a while but that’d be worth a try, Thanks!
@JeffBailey Welcome to the Brotherhood! And No Light Strikes Here
