    Many parts cost very little so when ordering a required part I always order a few springs, pins etc which are most likely to fail or be lost when performing thorough cleaning. Shipping cost is normaly greater than parts cost.

    Pins and springs have a nasty way of jumping to never never land even when care is taken.

    if you use words like "original" or "vintage" or "rare" or "pre-ban" you can get more and even sell them worn out, obsolete or defective parts too.

    I keep enough parts to completely rebuild my 2 1911s if need be....the others not so much.

    Things have changed since 2006 when this thread first started.

    I now have nine Beretta 92s. Have a LOT of extra springs and parks and what not for the guns. Nice to have things should an emergency arise

    Absolutely! I love mechanical things, I have a fetish for machined parts! I enjoy working on guns and engines, and have to know how to completely dis-assemble every firearm that I own, I detest having to rely on other people if something goes wrong, along with that the proper tools for dis-assembly re-assembly are a must. I've always done all of my own mechanical work, since I had a powerboat when I was twelve, and have restored 4 antique cars. I gotta know how things "tick". So I guess having extra parts comes with the territory.

    Are you ready? I've got one of everything, except a spare frame and extra firing pin, for each of the 3 Glock pistols that I own. (I, also, did the same thing on the old Colt 1911's that I used to run.) I, sort of, do the same thing on my, 'evil black rifles', too; only, here, I simply keep an entire extra rifle on hand.
