    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.
    I would like to get the parts to do that to my .44 SBH if I could, just havent got around to it

    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.

    Start a thread with photos of the mystery parts, and let us tell you (or guess) what they are and what they fit!

    My collection includes many vintage guns from the good ol' days of Spanish auto-pistols. So yea, I keep parts: recoil springs, magazines and magazine parts/springs, safety detents and detent springs, grips if they are the cheesy plastic-kind. and almost any part that I have replaced, I keep the old one just-in-case.

    THIS. Not to mention you wind up with a tinker's box full of parts, anyway.
    While I stock some screws and fasteners, In feel it's simply easier to order stuff
    when the need arises, rather than search additional clutter, for something you
    "stocked up on", months ago.
