If you are considering purchasing spare parts for your semi-automatic rifle, single-shot rifle, or semi-automatic handgun, the most essential spare part (and the one most likely to break) is the so-called extractor. In a semi-automatic rifle such as the M1A these tend to fracture, often within the first fifty rounds. In the case of Springfield they will replace the extractor free if you send the rifle back to the factory. Clearly under many circumstances that would be impracticable. There is a different and unique extractor for every rifle and semi-automatic handgun. While they are relatively inexpensive (under $25 U.S.) you may require a bolt disassembly tool ($75.00) to safety install one. The extractor is the part of the bolt that hooks onto the fired cartridge to pull it out of the chamber after the round is fired.. In a disaster or nation emergency you will find it impossible to find a replacement of a gunshop.
