    Hello,

    I counter sunk my forward assist roll pin, I used too large of a roll pin punch.
    I installed it from the bottom, so the bottom is where is counter sunk/mashed in a bit.
    It is about 0.05 in. counter sunk.


    Should I buy a new upper receiver?

    The damage is cosmetic, so I am asking others with more experience.
    I did touch it up with aluma-black, but you can still see it.


    Thank You,
    rfenergy

    Shoot it until it breaks, then worry about it. I'm sure it'll be ok.
