Default Dedicated Parts/Tool Boxes just for your AR

Are you like others I've seen, that now you have an AR Rifle, you have all your tools, cleaning equipment and other items in 1 BIG box, to tear that box apart just to find what you need on the bottom?

Or, are you like me, you've found that putting the many different Tools/Supplies/Ammo that the AR needs into various Tool/Fishing Boxes has made owning/repairing/building/shooting an AR so much easier?

I use only 1 Box for my Cleaning Supplies since I use the same Oil/Bore Cleaners with a change in size of Cleaning Rods on all my many different Calibers. Only big difference is using a Bore Guide with the AR.

I'm a process guy. All my cleaning gear is in a fishing box. Everything I need to clean any of my firearms. Assuming I'll actually clean one.....

But then again, I also have a 9mm pistol subset that travels, and a .45ACP kit that travels. oh, and one for .22 also.

I try to keep all my spare parts from builds in a cardboard box. (A true container that I can afford!).. .. With my AR Wrench. . and maybe some allen wrenches, s. . . . .

What I lack in organization, I make up in time spent looking for stuff. It's kinda win-win. After looking for a while, I often forget what I was trying to do and go mow the lawn or something.

I've got a big cardboard box, the digging around is common.

Hey....... Are high capacity storage boxes legal in CA. ? ?
Nice solution.

I always end up with parts that won't fit into the largest section

One box? Not really an option.

The 'diseased' among us might have 5-10 LPK/LBKs, 3-5 spare BCGs, a few extra CHs and sights, several stripped and completed lowers waiting to build on, 100+ mags in plastic, and a couple ziplock bags full of spare parts (formerly complete LPKs that had a piece or two commandeered for one reason or another).

I really need to get organized one of these days. Fortunately, I know where to find whatever I need in short order. Having this stuff is a positive. But I'd eventually like to provide a little order for the parts/pieces I've amassed.

I got a craftsman roll-away and top box combo. Got a few mechanics tools in it, but mostly AR stuff, like sweeper has, such as a torque wrench, AR wrench, etc.. I got a ROCKWELL JAWHORSE to use as a vise to hold a receiver in my Brownell's armorers block to install barrels, gas blocks, flash hiders, and buffer tubes. The rest of the space is filled with boxes of ammo.

I use the plano tackle boxes similar to the ones armsmaster270 uses. Everything about the plano tackle boxes is stackable. I use plastic pencil boxes for tools that need to be in a box by themselves.

Thanks for the brand of those boxes, John. Does anyone have brand/model information on good (or great) parts boxes? Three big junk drawers prove that I haven't found a good system yet.
