AR-10 spares kit Login/Join

Hey all-

What spare parts do you keep around for your AR-10-style rifle?
Since there is almost zero standardization in the platform, I'm thinking that I should have a spare BCG or at least a BCG rebuild kit for my particular rifle, at minimum.

Most of the lower parts interchange with the AR-15, I believe, so a lower parts kit handles that.

What do you keep?

I don't have an AR10, but I do have a SCAR 17 which has all the same issues as proprietary AR10s.

At a minimum I'd have a firing pin, complete Bolt, extractor, and any springs / pins etc for that assembly.

My AR-10B is from ArmaLite and I got a number of spare parts for it. RHINOWSO covered it nicely and I have a spare firing pin with its spring (the AR-10 FP has a spring whereas the AR-15 FP does not,) and a field repair kit with yet another firing pin and spring and another spring replacement kit.

The ARs run on springs, it's a good thing to have plenty of them.

not only that but Armalite parts are quality AND affordable.

Mine is a Palmetto PA-10. PSA sure makes it hard to find the little parts on their website!
Email sent to them with a list of needs.

I received a reply from PSA: they won't sell a bolt. You have to buy a BCG complete, if you want a spare.

Boo. Mad
