Just wondering what the weakest parts of an AR are. What parts wear out/break the first? I hear about average rounds between failures, but never specifics about the failures. Just Curious

My bad, didn't extend the dates for it when I searched.

Get a complete spare bolt if you want spare parts. Replace when your current bolt goes down for whatever reason. Have plenty of spare mags since they are the weak part of the system.

I've got a Colt 6920, and an Armalite M-15A2. If I get an entire spare Bolt, Will it work in either rifle if it fails? I know there are some minor differences by Brand & Type, but I don't know about the Bolt Assy. Thanks
