I have a RRA Entry Tactical (pictured below) and was thinking it might be a good idea to have some back up parts for SHTF situations, I guess meaning LENGTHY SHTF situations. How many of you keep spare parts for your battle rifle? And what spare parts do you keep? I have spare batteries for my red/green dot sight....but nothing else. I have only had this rifle for a short time, so I don't know what parts of this gun are prone to breakage? I guess getting a complete bolt assembly would be a good thing? Pricey, if only things like the firing pin retaining pin is something that will break though....? Thanks for your input.

Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
Yep, a complete bolt assembly, spare extractor and spring, spare gas rings, a broken case extractor, and the common spring and pin replacement kit are good things to have on hand. Add a bore snake and a good supply of lube and you should be good until your barrel is shot out.
