Welcome to the fold! You’re looking at a semi-automatic folding carbine that comes with more pistol magazine options than a cat has lives. The SUB2000 picks up where handguns leave off. Folded, it tucks away nicely in situations where space is limited, but it’s quick to deploy in situations where time is of the essence.

The semi-automatic SUB2000 is designed to be the most convenient 9mm rifle available. It’s adjustable and foldable to 18.75 x 7 inches for easy storage and can accept most popular handgun magazines. Plus it can easily be disassembled for cleaning or inspection without tools. Ideal for backpacking trips and situations where space and convenience are paramount.


  • Pistol Caliber Power
    • The SUB2000 offers the best of both worlds. Yes, it’s a pistol caliber, however the ballistic advantage and accuracy at distance come from the 18.5″ barrel. Barrel length translates to velocity which translates to power downrange. You’ll get the most out of your pistol ammunition right out of the box.
  • Fun
    • It’s modular due to the M-LOK and magazine compatibility. Yes it’s simple and reliable. It folds and stows nicely, but at the end of the day, the SUB2000 is simply fun to shoot.
  • Simple
    • Designed with a straight blow-back system, the SUB2000 is very simple to operate and maintain. The sights are intuitive, the stock is adjustable and field stripping is a breeze.
  • Accurate
    • The SUB2000 has been filling the pistol caliber carbine niche for two decades. Getting the most out of your pistol ammunition and maintaining magazine compatibility has never been easier and more affordable.
