    It looks like a connecting rod and a main spring are good things to have in your kit. My question is: Can a main spring be stored compressed with zip ties without adverse effects?

    Can anyone suggest what items I should pack in my kit for ATA shoots.

    Much appreciated. The beverages are in a separate kit

    Do not compress the spring, that defeats the purpose. The only parts I've broken are, the connecting rod, firing pin spring and the hammer struts. I would take a back up gun, nobody will let you take the time to repair, during the shoot......GOOD LUCK

    I keep a spare trigger because I can change it out easily. The hammer struts in the trigger are the most frequent. Shooting ATA trap loads will not likely cause a connecotr rod or hammer strut to break
