    AR-15 / M4 Spare parts

    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.

    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.
