I was cleaning up my workshop/mancave the other day and realized how many extra parts I had. Extra sights, pistol grips, stocks, barrels, spare bolt parts, Etc. I have been putting things in plastic tubs but was wondering what others might use to organize their spare stuff. Is everyone just using tubs and toolboxes? Thanks.

I use the clear fishing tackle/ lure boxes for having all my small parts together in one spot, some 6"x4"x4" clear boxes from Walmart for bigger parts and extra magazines.

Small parts go into the cylinder type breast milk storage containers from walmart. Few bucks for a dozen, they are like large vials with screw on caps. They are organized on the shelves. Large parts go in stackable tupperware tubs.

Here is what I recommend…
1) place parts in a ziploc bag
2) place enclosed parts in a cardboard box
3) fill boxes and boxes with parts
4) mail filled boxes to my address….

LOL JK

I just keep all my spare stuff in the garage, usually in tackle boxes or tool boxes… live I AZ so metal parts do just fine without oil. Provided they are locatable and stay dry, its all good.

I like to use the plastic storage drawer units like http://www.amazon.com/Sterilite-Cor...office-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1337885804&sr=1-1 to hold small parts. I have one unit for parts and one for cleaning supplies.

I also use a couple of plastic drawer organizers like: http://www.amazon.com/Rubbermaid-Home-2915RDWHT-2915-RD-WHT-Organizer/dp/B001A3I4FO/ref=pd_sbs_hg_3 to catch parts during take down and to hold them when they are covered in cleaner.

My workspace is actually my basement bar so the rest of my stuff gets put away under the sink in a tool chest or the drawers under the counter top.

I like these. http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/7ACO-1.html



I'm not sure about this particular set, but the ones I have you can adjust the size of each slot. I have two plastic ammo cans that I bought that came with organizers. I got them on sale, otherwise I would've just gone with these and some metal cans.

I have almost all of my stuff in just one can now. I used to keep it all in Ziploc bags. Now everything from spare magazine floor plates to an extra red dot are in the box. Scope rings, hardware, all of it.

I have plastic tool boxes for every type of Gun I shoot. I have one for M1A's one for Glocks, 1911's, Cowboy type guns, Remington Shotguns my Two different Bows. These are just some of my tool boxes filled with gun goodies. I find it easier to just grab a box as I go shooting and know that I will have everything I need for that firearm!
