Sub-tek rifle

Postby Baltimoreed11754 » Fri Feb 27, 2015 6:18 am

Does anyone own or shot a Sub-Tek .45 carbine? Kinda looks like an AR and a Sten got together and had a kid. Stumbled up up it on YouTube. Neat idea.

I confess I have been researching them lately, but only because I had the same idea, side feed and bottom ejection. In truth I am kinda whizzed that someone beat me to the punch. . .

I would love to pursue the concept commercially , but I am afraid it may be wrapped up in legalize deeper than I can afford to dig. . . . .

my Olympic Arms® K9™ 9mm carbine ran on STEN® magazines; and it ran reliably on them; but I was never a big fan of the STEN® magazines, as they were a major PITA to load, especially to a 32-round capacity.

Additionally: I can't locate a web-site for the manufacture? and this video was hung up on YouTube nearly three years ago ... I'm not sure if the custom .45ACP upper-halve unit ever made it to market, or not?

That's what I found when trying to research the gun and manufacturer, maybe it's just a one-of and it never got any farther off the ground than that. It's still a neat idea. Time for Justin to fire up his CNC machine.

agreed that it's a cool concept; and I'm sure someone could fill a ‘niche market’ with a functional product.

Sub-Tek website went down about a year ago and has never come back, the domain name is for sale now.

Well, that explains that. Nice concept, but if you can't manufacture it and bring it to market, it's an exercise in futility.

Thanks for looking into Sub Tek for me. Neat prototype but it takes more than a good idea to become a realism. A few years ago I did some inquiring about creating a patent on turret press modifications I've come up with that really speed up the process. To start the ball rolling, I needed $8000.00 for the patent lawyer to make the required drawings and then a 2 year back log at the patent office. And then, per the patent atty, the US patent office always declines the first application and it needs to be amended, read more $$$$. That's assuming that there were no infringement by my idea on someone else's patent. I honestly don't know if I could even recoup the patent application. How many folks use turret presses anymore?
