An extra recoil spring & a couple extra magazine springs/followers. An extra battery for your red dot. And if you can afford it, an extra pistol. Also make sure your grip screws are tight before each match.

Aside from a 2nd gun, grip screw and nut, safety, slide stop, battery and Allen wrenches for all screws on gun(and your rig). 

That is all I carry but would most likely go to 2nd gun if something happened.

Forgot as stated above, aftec springs and cap. 

How can you tell if the aftec springs are in need of replacing? I've had the original ones in there for the past few years and so many rounds its not possible to keep track.

A second identical gun wont come anytime soon considering it has every bell and whistle he can do the gun. My wallet simply wont allow it right now lol. I’ll def look into the other suggestions. 

 

I don't have an identical 2nd gun but I have one I can shoot equally (or very close to) as well. Just say'in.

They seem to last a long time. I keep new ones on hand and just compare them when I clean. If they are really short I change them

I have had a spring break once. It will then fte occasionally. I knew something is wrong. Replaced it and back on track. I know change them more often.

Extra batteries for the red dot. 

I carry my (old) backup. Needed it once in 3 years average 3 matches a month. It's hardly worth the trouble but I probably will still bring it as all the matches are a 125 mile drive each way. I wouldn't work on it at a local match, just take it home and fix it. Factory STi GM

Major match probably a different story, but there (used to be) supplies and gunsmiths there.

The cups are most prone to breaking and then the extractor itself.

 

i have this onhand and a backup gun if the frame, barrel, or slide cracks.

I like this. A lil much for some but great to have.  Mine is close to this.

I agree, this is more of a box of parts that wear and eventually need replacing vs an emergency repair kit but it’s a small enough box that it really doesn’t matter to me that I’m carrying the extra stuff

It’s also good to carry spares of things that you’re likely to lose if disassembly in a windy, rocky, safety area when in a hurry.

Pin sets, springs, etc may not be a part that breaks all the time but finding a plunger spring in a weed patch makes it worth carrying an extra whenever I’m shooting.
