Default You have too many parts when.....

I purchased a B/R, when making a mental (dangerous) list of the stuff I needed, I thought to myself-a bolt, I need a bolt, will have to buy one on the forum. Anyway while looking for enblocs, I stumbled upon a NOS SA bolt I had. Totally forgotten about. I normally keep all my metal parts in the tray type holders. Everything from bullet guides- butt plates. Any way as luck would have it, I have everything I need for my next build. I'm kinda scared to do an inventory to realize the potential.

If someone said they had “MORE than enough parts too.....”.

Would that get their forum membership revoked?

Or just ridiculed mercilessly?

Don't worry about it man. I have had more than one occurrence where I purchased a part that I already had.
Funny thing is that I ended up using that part on another project

it's all good,
Rob

Try moving every few years. You realized just how much inventory you have and its stupid funny. Then then you shove it somewhere you’re sure to find it for the next project. Then the next project comes along and, damm it cant find that part you know you have and have to get an extra, but you saw a really good deal so bought some extra in case you misplaced the one you really needed. BUT eventually it will pay off, years later......

Too many parts? Lol, I didn't realize there was such a thing.

I will normally keep a max of 5 of each. So like 5 of each revision. I also keep because youll have different finishes, condition etc..


It works because when I work on mine or someone elses rifle if I need to swap parts its normally pretty easy
