OK, I have 4 AR-15 pattern firearms and would like to know what spare parts do you guys keep or take with you to the range.

Also what tools? I have a stock wrench already.

Does anyone sell a spare parts or range kit that you recommend? I have one colt 2 bushmaster and one Rock River lower wih DPMS upper.

I learned the hard way about spares when a simple part broke on my HK and it took several weeks to get a new one and get the firearm up and running.


FNGfromGA out.

A sight tool.
I just take more than one gun to the range. Parts usually stay at the house.
