im looking at getting a ciener kit for my m16. what spare parts would you recommend me keeping on hand. What parts most often needed to replace. Thanks

Firing pin seems to be the weak link. As much as I shoot mine (read often) I think a spare extractor may be a good idea.

Lots of reports of broken firing pins, but mine hasn't yet. I did break the tip on my extractor, though I fixed it w/o replacing it. Lots of people replace the recoil spring with one from Lakeside Guns. Seems like that would be the main wear item to me.
