New for 2020, KelTec has released yet another innovative and cool firearm: the Sub 2000 CQB (Carbine Quiet Barrel). This new beauty from KelTec is an integrally suppressed PCC carbine. It will be available in 9mm and 40 S&W. Even though the CQB is integrally suppressed and has a threaded barrel length of only 4.24″, it has a combined barrel length of over 16″ when including the suppressing portion of the barrel. Because of this, you will only have to apply for one tax stamp due to it not being an SBR.
The Sub 2000 CQB has all of the same features as a 2nd gen Sub 2000, but this one will potentially be offered (as an option) with a red dot, laser and light for slightly more than the bare-bones model. Although, the CQB has a new twist and fold mechanic in order to accommodate these optics and attachments. Also, the CQB will be available in a “multi-mag” and Glock mag offering.
Because the length of the barrel is basically a suppressor, you would assume that it would get hot when shot in high volume; but at the time that I used the CQB, it had 4,000 rounds through it and was still cool enough to touch. If it were to get too hot to touch, the CQB has a polymer forend that you can hang onto.
The CQB will be available for purchase sometime around September of 2020. At the time that it is available, you will see it offered for $995 MSRP, but remember to add another $200 for the tax stamp for the integrated suppressor.
