    Hello all. This is sort of a general question on maintenance. What spare parts for your firearms do you keep on hand? I keep a lot of magazines and whenever a part breaks, I buy two (one to replace, one to store). However, I'm thinking about expanding the items on hand for preparedness purposes. Firing pins and springs would be at the top of the list, but I'm sure there are some others to sock away.

    I've actually been thinking the same thing lately. My XCR is my go to gun for survival purposes and I know the earlier generations had issues. So far mine has been flawless but I'm really worried about something going wrong when I need it most. I also only have about 120 rounds through mine.

    I don't have any spare parts yet, but I'm trying to stay on top of any potential issues with the current generation so I can pick up replacements ahead of time if necessary. So far I've yet to see any issues reported.
