    Where is the best place to get a ar15 spare parts kit to have. My main concern is the bolt and/or bolt carrier group.

    Thanks

    you can get the BCG anywhere, depends on the quality you want in it . I would check Brownells , Palmetto state armory , Bravo company or Del ton. As for the little things that you may want, check out my buddys site as he has very good pricing on pre packaged field repair kits and spring sets. http://www.tacticaltoybox.com/Holiday-Specials/

    I'd get a DD, BCM, or maybe Fail Zero BCG. I'd probably order from gandrtactical.com

    I agree! If Rainier sells it, I buy it from them. Fantastic CS and great shipping prices!!! I believe its a $7 flat rate per order CONUS.

    FYI my spare parts list consists of:
    2-3 sets of gas rings
    extractor set (extractor, spring, insert)
    ejector, ejector spring, 2 retaining pins
    Bolt
    Firing pin
    Firing pin retaining pin

    For individual parts Rock River Arms is also a good resource.

    Thanks guys, lots of info. My AR is a new Daniel Defense m4 v4, I am looking for spare parts for the BCG. I will have to check out the websites. How much and who does the NP3 coating? If it makes life easier cleaning i may be up for that. That carbon is a pain in the [email protected]@!! I am thinking easy off oven cleaner would work pretty darn good on removing the carbon build up. What do you think?

    solvent is your best bet. Soak the hell out of it.

    Solvent or carb cleaner wit a brush works best .

    Good question. I've been meaning to pick up a spare part kit for my AR for awhile. Just haven't got around to it.

    On a similar note, how often do you replace your gas seals? Or how do you know that they need replacing?

    As far as i know, take your bolt carrier group out and with it in your hand fling the bolt forward like you would before you put it back in the rifle. Take and stand it up on the bolt and if the gas rings are good the bolt carrier should stay up under its own weight and not slide down, the gas rings should hold it up. This is done of course out of the gun, fling it forward and stand it up on a flat surface.
