Kel-Tec recently issued a recall on a limited number of one of their most popular firearms, the Sub 2000. The Sub 2000 is a pistol caliber carbine that comes in either 9mm or .40 S&W and folds up for easy storage. Many people use them as their “truck guns” or in their go bag for survival purposes. The issued recall states the following:
We have recently identified an issue with the heat treatment of certain steel tubes received from a third‐party supplier from which the barrels for a limited number of Kel‐Tec SUB‐2000 rifles were manufactured. This could potentially cause the barrel to rupture when a cartridge is fired and could result in serious personal injury. The safety of our customers is our primary concern, so Kel‐Tec has voluntarily initiated this recall because of the possibility of a barrel rupturing.
This recall only affects a portion of SUB‐2000s that were manufactured in 2017.
All costs associated with the recall of your firearm shall be covered by Kel‐Tec.
