I have found that its just best to keep a couple extra ARs around its much easier than changing out a part
Same here... every time I get an extra BCG or lower it turns in to another rifle. Three ARs and one AK, lots of magazines, thousands of rounds - that should do it!
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.
