The Kel-Tec SUB-2000 carbine is
fun to shoot, but the cheek weld to the steel bolt tube is a
source of some discomfort. The heavy bolt recoils inside the
bolt tube which is in contact with the shooter's cheek. The
steel bolt tube is also a good thermal conductor, transferring
heat or cold into the shooter's cheek. The Bolt Tube Cover
insulates the shooter from the shock loads and temperature
extremes, greatly increasing the comfort when shooting the
SUB-2000. It also provides a tough rubber armor for the bolt
tube, making it an even tougher little go-anywhere, do-anything
verify that you are ordering the correct Bolt Tube Cover,
depending on whether you have the Gen 1 SUB-2000 or Gen 2 SUB-2000.

Are The Disadvantages?
Bolt Tube Cover adds an insignificant 1
ounce to the weight (1.18
ounces for the Gen 1).
With the increased
comfort, you'll have a harder time prying the SUB-2000 out of
your friends' hands to keep them from shooting all of your ammo.
Durable Is The Bolt Tube Cover?
Bolt Tube Cover is made from Santoprene, a thermoplastic elastomer
that combines the best qualities of synthetic EDPM rubber and
polypropylene. It's a tough and abrasion resistant armor for
your SUB-2000's bolt tube that is chemical resistant, UV resistant
and ozone resistant. It has a lifetime warranty. If
the Bolt Tube Cover ever fails, we'll immediately ship a

the Gen 1 is slightly more involved, but should require only a few
more minutes. The detailed Gen 1 instruction sheet is HERE.
It Accommodate The Different Lengths Of Pull For
The Gen 2?
Gen 2 Bolt
Tube Cover is supplied full length, for the longest length of
pull. There are two trim guides laser etched into the Bolt Tube
Cover that can be used to trim the length of the Gen 2 Bolt Tube
Cover for the mid-length or shorty length of pull. A box cutter
or any sharp blade
can be used to precisely cut
along the trim guide. This is a permanent modification, but the
SUB-2000 can still be used in any of the adjustable lengths by
leaving the Bolt Tube Cover all the way forward. We recommend
leaving the Bolt Tube Cover full length unless someone needs a
shorter length, or if someone prefers a shorter length almost all
of the time. In that case, the SUB-2000 can be extended to full
length and the shortened
Bolt Tube Cover does
not need to be removed. It can remain in place and the SUB-2000
can be switched between the various lengths.
