Are these worth having 'ahead of time'? What's a good source for mil-spec or quality kits?

Depends on whether you like having to wait for parts if one breaks... Personally, I've never had to replace a part on my bushy. I would imagine that a parts kit from Bushmaster, DPMS, RRA, etc would be fine. [url]http://www.bushmaster.com/shopping/lowers/arpartskit.asp[/url]

I have a Bushy "Field Repair Kit" as well as the mother of all spring kits that Nate1 linked above. Haven't needed to replace anything yet, but it's reassuring to know they're there if'n I need 'em.

Stick with a higher grade supplier. You shouldn't need the things but it's sometimes nice not to have to wait for something to come in. I favor ArmaLite stuff and their kits come in a sexy little green box. I've stuffed it with other parts. As much as it'll hold. I figure it'll last me for decades.

Having your AR down due to some small .50 cent part breakage or a spring or detent flys into the carpet while you're cleaning is no fun... Bushmaster has quality parts, and a spring kit along with the field repair kit and the detent kit is cheap insurance...
