    The stock is not going to wear down the button. I’m still using my factory enhanced stock from 8 years ago and I snap it open without any cares and it doesn’t wear. The only wear spot on the stock is the hinge itself where the plastic rubs the plastic to lock it up. That took about 3-5 years before that happened, with rough use the whole time.
    Not to resurrect the dead but beyond the charging handle assembly, what would you would be major high critical wear parts you would advise one having on hand?

    Assume the part number is correct here?
    F1000901 : CHARGING HANDLE ASSEMBLY

    I should note I have had zero issues to date and last count over 12k rounds. I recently picked up a 10.5 barrel and plan to SBR once I put together a good replacement parts list to keep on hand.

    I only keep spare piston springs, small bolt parts and a firing pin in my range kits. I don’t even care about the charging handle assemblies much honestly, the old ones die but it takes a lot of work.

    With that being said, there is no real f part number for the charging handle assembly. I’ve tried to order them a few times and never received any parts at all. Anymore you have to order the new spare ambi assemblies. I have a few in stock now.

    Do they have the new ambi charging assemblies with coyote handles out yet? I'm guessing not since they don't even have coyote hand guards yet.

    I received black handles. Also the selector lever and selector plate were black on my lower. I've seen Magpul phase out small colored parts for their own products (MIAD grip core, etc) - perhaps this is happening with the ACR stuff as well?

    Ah, bummer. Was hoping to do the charging assembly upgrade without having to paint anything. Thanks for the follow up info.

    All the new rifles come with black small parts. They had coyote acrs at shot with the tan knobs so that might happen. I can try to order some coyote knobs to see if I can get any in but as of right now they are all black.
