How many spare parts do you have on hand for your guns?


When an extractor decides it no longer wants to extract, a magazine spring breaks, a sight post breaks/falls off your gun, do you have a contingency for this?

Here's what I carry for my AR: A complete spare new bolt, spare firing pin w/ retaining pin, and a complete extractor w/ pin, spring, rubber o ring and buffer, etc. If my optic dies then it's to the irons for backup and in all the years I've abused ARs I have yet to break a set of good sights. I have knocked the wing off of an M16A1 but the FSP was still usable. When I have a mag go bad once I figure out what part crapped out I chunk it and stash the rest of it for spare parts and replace the entire mag - hell they're consumables.
