I know this has been posted before but I can't find it. What's everyone's opinion of what parts you should keep on hand for your AR?
I currently have the following:
an extra rifle
but if not
firing pin retainers
extractor and spring
sear/disconector and spring
hammer and spring
trigger and spring
a spare lower parts kit would be good along with a extra bolt group, that would cover just about everything
I believe it was Mongo who said if you have even ONE spare part it must be built into a complete rifle. I'm following that lead
I keep a set of springs, pins, firing pin, cam pin & firing pin retainer.
I keep all of my spare parts in an extra rifle. It saves on storage space.
My spares are a BCG, CH, LPK and a couple of extra rifles.
But a BCG, CH and LPK will pretty much cover anything.
Also saves time when you have to install 'em.
