Default P-64/P-83 - what spare parts to have on hand?

Looking to some of you folks with more experience.....
I have a P-64, P-83 and am looking to pick up a CZ82 in the next 6 months.

To date, I have had no problems with either of these 9X18 pistols and I would like to keep it that way. However I realize these are mechanical things and while I take very good care of them...parts do wear and sometimes break.
What spare parts would be good to have on hand - I plan on continuing to shoot these on a regular basis....
I was thinking at least an extra firing pin & spring, & an extractor, what else?? are there certain springs I should look at having? or other hard parts?

Thanks in advance
Todds SS

I think all of those pistols are still going for under $250. Could try buying whole pistols as parts donors.

For the P64, there is a seller on GB that has new old stock parts. One thing I got was the trigger guard. Seen some people on the net break the guard.

I just picked up a P-64 and I am very happy with this gun and the craftsmanship. I will be buying another one soon. And some spare parts just in case.

Spare parts, for the P-83, seem pretty tough to find...I am finding this out.

Besides changing out the recoil spring and hammer spring for Wolff replacements, the trigger guard pin is the only part I had to replace. It broke while at the range on the second time I had the pistol out for practice.
It seems all P-64 parts are hard to find. I had to use a 5/32 roller pin from an assortment I bought at Harbor Freight. It works fine just a tad bit more difficult to pull the trigger guard down for dis-assembly. I'm still looking for the dumb-bell shaped original pin,however, the roller pin will work until I find one.

One additional note: If you change your recoil Spring for a Wolff recoil spring Wolff will send you in the same package a firing pin spring. One more spare part in the SP bin.
