In all of your experiences which parts on an AR wear out or break first? I know what typically wears out on my RR, but I shoot it alot and it also obviously gets more of a round count through it. more so than any AR I have. I'm looking at buying a whole lot of the parts that could and will wear out first. I can samize from the RR which parts they will be but I would like a general consensus!

Damn, nice words . . . though I'm one to talk.

In answer to your question, I would venture springs, bolt stuff, and gas tubes.

Gas Rings, bolts, cam pins, extractors, hammers (disconnector notch) and disconnectors, recoil springs, gas tubes... what I can think of right now.

I have a problem wearing out those funny little brass things that go in the magazines. I find myself constantly buying new ones.

But seriously, I keep a good supply of all the springs and pins, extractors ect. I’ve yet to stock any thing larger than that.
