Default Ar-15 parts stockpile?

Does anyone else stockpile ar-15 parts? I have enough parts to build 12 ar-15's. I just feel like if a shtf situation arises, having extra parts on hand will be great for repairs or trading. What do you have stockpiled?

This has been my experience too!

I'd say put the parts together into rifles now before all heck breaks loose. Why would you want to wait until the zombies are at the door! And while you're at it load your magazines now as well.

Also you want to know now if any of those parts have problems, while there's still a chance to exchange under warranty.

LOL. I too can never seem to collect spare parts due to them turning into ARs.
