Spare Parts, what do you realy need.
« on: November 06, 2014, 09:21:13 PM »
OK, so things have gone amiss but you and your loved ones are good. Your trusty M4, AK, Glock or 12 gauge is holding up fine, but is it?

What parts would you have for each? There are "spare parts" kits and such but what really breaks or needs replacing from the real world?

On my trusty old Mossberg 500A, the safety is plastic and broke in half. Not that I use the safety, but I do check it time to time.

Great questions.  I keep lots of mag springs handy. all the springs for the internals on the Glocks (very interchangable on the Gen3s of all calibers)  Nothing else should ever wear out on a Glock.

I have enough 870s that I don't even keep spare parts......

AK mag springs and trigger springs.

AR bolts and mag springs as well as barrels and trigger springs
Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

I have a spare upper, and small parts kit as well as enough parts to build a couple guns on hand
Plenty of just extra mags for everything. I have a bunch of spare AK parts, stocks, grips, slings, you name it.

I need to look into spare springs for the AK and Glock, covered on the AR easy cept mag springs. But I have mags a plenty.

I have a couple uppers to and BCGs when they went on sale ($80).

OBTW Don, how are those $20 mags you got for the glock working, I am shy on those with a 23, 22 and Carbine all in 40.

They are factory Glock 22 mags. So I switched out the floor plate to a +2 and use them as spares for the G23
