RE: Brushbeater: Running Spares Keep Your Weapon Going

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

An excellent post that frames the problem in a balanced way considering parts can/ do break with the reality that’s we all have competing financial demands.

I would add the following:

Even if they don’t break small springs and pins are the items most likely to be lost in cleaning/ disassembly. Related to this in field/ emergency conditions just field strip weapons for cleaning. For the AR I would not even disassemble the complete BCG. Clean it off and re oil it. Now if there is an issue you don’t have a choice but as a matter of normal course keep all the small parts together where they should be.

Consider having a spare set of ancillary stuff. Pouches/ etc. it doesn’t have to be expensive Gucci cool guy stuff. A cheap surplus LBE with mag pouches and a canteen works. Just a decent intentional way to carry your gun stuff in case your primary stuff is lost or fails.

For rifles commonality dictates standard 5.56 DI AR’s and AKMs in 7.62×39. The other viable choices lack a sufficient base. For pistols it’s a much more spread out mix. Standard Glocks in 9mm and .40S&W probably have a slight edge but a dozen or so various pistols follow closely.

If your this worried stack cleaning stuff Deep also.
