Re: do you have spare parts
I keep springs and other wear items on hand. Just one or two of each, but enough that if should something happen, I don't have to wait for parts or find out that they're unavailable. The time to buy spares is ASAP IMO. Granted it may be 30-40 years before they're needed, but look how many people are looking for parts for an old gun and find out that they've got to have it custom made by a smith. When I pass down my guns, I know my kids aren't going to have to hunt around to fix 99% of any problems in the future. I've bought a few other parts aside from wear items if the price is right, I couldn't pass up a spare bolt assy for the BAR that I had for $30.
