    what do you keep for spares parts?

    what do you keep around for your Yugo m70 style rifle?
    I am just thinking what I should keep handy.
    spring kit
    extractor
    firing pin, all the above?
    even though there is not much to break, it does happen.

    do you know where can I find a good ak parts supplier? because it
    seems they're always missing one or 2 parts,
    meaning they do not sell it. find 11 small parts, need twelve, sorry Charlie.
    shipping can just kill a deal.

    another thought is a thread protector a muzzle attachment
    when it comes to 922. seems foggy to me.

    hell k-var is blank, nuttin.

    While no one ever listens to me,
    I am constantly being told to be quiet.

    I would add a hammer and disconnector. Although they are pretty stout pieces, I have seen a broken one.

    Check Apex Gun Parts as they have a pretty good supply of "stuff".

    Actually back in the days when AK variants were more affordable, I just bought an extra one just in case the first broke. Still waiting for the first ones to break, including an SAR-1 with over 14,000 rounds though it.

    Thanks for the offer, but why part with any of my "parts guns".

    here is the problem I have with spare parts, eventually the spare parts grow into whole guns. It is the worst with ARs because they are so easy to put together. Oh, I'll just have a spare BCG, furnity and fire control group. Next thing you know you see a killer deal on an up and firgure, well shit, a lower is only an extra $60 at this point and BAM, you have 2 guns.

    You'll never need spares...any single or double hook set up will work just fine.
