M-LOK Comp or Standard Version

Description Installation Instructions
Gen 1 Sub2000 Forend (Base Unit, no rails) now offered in M-LOK Compatible Version and Standard Rail Version. Red Lion Precision, LLC offers MLOK Compatible Rail Sections as well as Standard Rail Sections.

Description + Features

Factory Front Sight Needs Removed For Install, Removing The Factory Front Sight Almost Certainly Requires Destroying It (see installation instructions tab for details).

This forend features many of the same design qualities that our SU forends and PLR forends have. The main feature of this design, however, is that it indexes to repeatable positive positions in 90 degree increments to allow you to keep your optic mounted, zeroed, and still be able to fold the gun. This is accomplished by using the same concept as a picatinny rail but with four 45 degree tangs interfacing with a mating negative in the face of the forend mounting coupler. This provides positive positioning in the X,Y Plane for repeatability. This design also leaves very little room for contaminates to enter the interface

*M-LOK Compatible Version has all the features of our original Standard Rail Version but has M-LOK Compatible slots on all 8 sides (every 45 degrees) to accommodate our M-LOK Compatible Rail sections or other companies offerings of M-LOK accessories.

*Standard Rail Version has slot cutouts for more rail options (basically any rail that is 19 slot or under and uses 10-24 screws in bolt hole patterns divisible by .394) and cooling slots machined to accept Ergo LowPro Rail Covers when a rail is not present in that location. Cut rail covers into four rib sections for use. Magpul MOE rails can be used along with their supplied hardware except in the most forward location or rearward location in which case using one of our rail grommets would solve this but rail will protrude slightly out the front. Ours and the Magpul MOE rails will co-witness with either the factory sights or our R7 front sight when using a mount that co-witnesses with AR15 iron sights when mounted on a AR15 A3 flattop reciever that has a 1/2 inch riser. In our example pic mount used was the ARMS22 M68 Aimpoint mount without spacer. Below are pics showing Ergo Lowpro rail covers and a pic of the cowitnessing.

To index forend: Loosen knurled nut until it contacts forend (approx 1/10 inch), index forend to desired position, and retighten knurled nut. No tools needed.

Gun Interface-Forend coupler clamps to barrel and also engages back plate on S2K for positioning. Does not allow barrel to unscrew when force is applied to forend.

5 of 5 Excellent Product - Excellent Customer Service! February 27, 2019
Reviewer: Scott Ragan from Burns, TN United States  
I ordered one of these for my Gen 1 glock 40 cal version and love it.  When I got a Gen 2, this was the first upgrade.
these guns are so much fun to shoot.
Holds zero  as long as the locking nut is tight.
Excellent product - A must have for the sub2k

5 of 5 A must upgrade for any Sub 2000 Owner October 6, 2015
Reviewer: John Eickhoff from Saint Louis, MO United States  
The Red Lion Forearm is significant upgrade to the Sub 2000.    It is very well made and looks like it will hold up under any condition.

What I like

1) Feels solid to hold.  
2) The rotating forearm allows you to still fold the gun.   I only got a top rail.
3) It no longer feels like a plastic toy.

What I don’t like.

1) The sights are not high enough to view thru a EOTECH type optic.   You can rotate it to the side to use the fixed sights.  
2) The screw function to unlock the rotation while good would be better if it was spring loaded so you could change it quickly.  
3) The Cost is way to high.  When you add it all up you are paying just under what you paid for the gun in the first place.

The bottom line.

This is a great upgrade to the Sub 2000.  I would recommend to all.  I liked it so well I ordered a 2nd for my 40SW.

5 of 5 Kel-Tec Fore end. September 27, 2015
Reviewer: David Pritchett from Quitman, GA United States  
Lightning fast!. Ordered at 0300  on 9/23/15.... received at 1530 approx. on 9/25/15.. Workmanship is phenomenal in every respect.. Finish is GREAT!.. Instructions were printed too small to read comfortably so I went to You Tube and watched a couple of videos.. It took longer to remove the front sight that do the installation. Now I am just waiting for my optics to put together a mean, lean, home defense and survival rifle. You CANNOT go wrong.. Order NOW!.

5 of 5 Over the top! August 8, 2015
Reviewer: Mike from Buffalo, NY United States  
This is by far the most thought-out and quality item I have purchased for any gun that I own.  The engineering and workmanship is the best I have seen in a long, long time!  This rail coupled with the RLP front sight turned my Sub2000 into a very functional home defense weapon as well a fun shooter at the range.   This rail opened up a tremendous amount of options to what was a very lackluster, albeit accurate, weapon.  Great Job RLP!!!

5 of 5 Amazing product! March 21, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Altoona, PA United States  
I just want to say to red lion precision, great job! Theirs nothing like seeing top notched products still made in the U.S. Love the design and for making a nice looking fold out carbine to turn heads at the range! And good job on the flash adapter and the front sights too.
