Havent seen a thread like this, and not sure of how it will take off. Everyone always talks about their drawers of spare parts. How bout a thread showing them off? Unfortunately I am too new in this to have one, so i can't kick it off.

DUDE

As soon as this moving debacle gets all sorted out I will post pics.  I have two drawers of junk people shouldn't buy and a few things yet to be put to good use.

Until then it's about as real as my imaginary friend Henry, I suppose.

SUB'D

There ought to be a thread where you post pics of your parts bin(s) and then other members can chime in if they are interested in a particular part. From that point, the pic poster could list the individual part on EE as "reserved" for the member who chimed in. It would keep people from having to do those 4 hour long spare parts posts and it would offer the same amount of buyer/seller protection as EE affords.



I guess you could sort of to that in WTT but it would be more fun if it were structured as a pic thread.

Hey, that is nice.  Thanks for the contribution.  Mine is mostly in boxes, out of room to have it organized.

I don't have a drawer but, I have two large bins and quite a few boxes. Will try and take pics and post..

Funny thing is that I just started trying to organize my parts this past week or so.  Right now I've got boxes, trunks, shelves, containers etc., and I'm always finding shit I didn't know I had.  The goal is to organize by gun type and label everything in plastic organizers so I can find something I need.  I post up once completed!!

It's funny that when you start taking a tally of all the "extra" AR parts you have laying around, it's only a few parts short of a whole gun.  Who'da thunk it???

I was just thinking the same thing last night as I was digging through mine looking for a crush washer.

Drawer?

Metal filing cabinet with index card sized drawers, each labeled by gun. If I find parts at shows or from blown up guns, especially the rare ones, they go in the correct drawer. Everything from bolt releases to FAL recoil springs, all in oiled paper in plastic bags.

Link Posted: 9/11/2013 5:20:39 AM EDT
Drawer?  I have a couple of boxes.
Link Posted: 9/11/2013 5:20:41 AM EDT
Heres my spare parts collection. I don't have pictures of all the small parts I keep on hand.

Mines more of a future build drawer. I get the idea and buy the part, it'll get expensive if I rolled with each idea at one time.

ETA. My avitar can give you an idea.
Link Posted: 9/11/2013 5:27:39 AM EDT
Oh!  In after the lock!

Been organizing also.  Bins and stuff.

Found some old VHS plastic cases when converting tapes over to digital for the parents.  They are great for small parts and stack well on the shelf.  Sharpie used for a label since I don't really care about the case and I'm NOT that anal!

No pics, but I'll list my spare parts here:

1.  End plate from upgrading to Noveske QD.
2.  A2 grip from upgrading to MOE.
3.  CAR stock from upgrading to B5 SOPMOD
4.  Handful of Larue index clips.

Link Posted: 9/11/2013 6:12:05 AM EDT
For the small parts, (detents, springs, etc.) I got some plastic tubes from Sinclair (they're pricey these days, Brownells lists some in a bulk quantity at a lower price).

I got an exploded poster of an AR15 from Bushmaster with their part numbers by each part. I used Quark to knock out some paper labels with the info, rolled them up and put each label in the tube with its parts. I keep an inventory on an Excel worksheet.



The tubes go in a Plano fishing tackle gizmo from WalMart.





All the large stuff is in a Task Force tool box, one for my ARs, one for my FAL and one for my handguns.

Most of my reloading kit is in a large rolling plastic bin I got from Sears. Don't have a dedicated reloading site, bench in the house. I have a jig set up on a Work Mate bench I move to the garage in cool weather, in the house during the summer.

Very good ideas. I've been thinking of setting up some plastic containers with spare parts.
