I just got a parts manual for a PIAT and for my RAOC display I need to know which parts need replacing most. Can any of the PIAT owners clue me in?

The usual component to get damaged and need replacing is the cocking rod, the male thread on the end that screws into the striker can strip. This will almost certainly be the result of someone 'dry firing' or allowing the PIAT to de-cocked without the correct amount of restraint. A new cocking rod is easy enough to make up if required.

The bit that gets lost is the spigot cork! Exactly the same as a water bottle cork, costs pennies.
