Welcome to TFB Web Deals 10. This week we’re talking about spare AR parts. I’ve said it before and I’ll probably keep saying it till the AR-15 is all but an antique – it never hurts to have around a bunch of spare AR parts. Whether your favorite rifle is needing a couple replacement parts, or you’re building a new one and you’ve just launched your second front takedown pin detent across the garage again, spare parts can really save your bacon. So today for TFB Weekly Web Deals 10, we’ll be taking a look at five different on-sale spare AR parts that you can pick up to add to your personal stash.

With the popularity of short, pistol-length, AR-style firearms on the market, more of today’s AR owners are seeing a phenomenon that occurs on semi-automatic firearms with short gas systems: overgassing. The result of overgassing is increased wear on internal components, as well as increased felt recoil. To address these issues, Aero Precision launched its AR-15 Carbine Buffer Kit.
Buffer tubes can get bent, be cracked and buffer springs can be accidentally bent or wear out. Additionally, it’s always nice to have a spare buffer around. Brownells has several different combination buffer kits on sale so be sure to check them out to see which one you think will fit your needs most.
