Hard to describe. Hard to picture.

Purchased used. Very dirty. This was buried under gunk. With several cleanings, the dull, grey gunk came out.

Is this fixable?

Are you sure it's not impacted lead? Try pressing a pin into it and see if it marks.

It doesn't look like this would cause any operational problem though. Unless it holds the bolt off the chamber face, it isn't going to affect chambering? Everything else looks pretty good, actually.

It is actually missing metal.

From the roundish cut-out, there's a gouge running toward the magazine. Maybe it's just poor machining?

Anyway, it doesn't seem to affect function.

Apart from the buildup yours looks pretty much the same as James's to me. And nothing really reaches into that space, it's well below and beside the top round. So I don't see how it could be worn from contact.

If it were mine, I'd try to gently get under whatever is there and try to release it. Especially in that corner hole, which is there so they didn't have to make a tricky inside cut at the factory.

Thanks -TT- and Jim.

After soaking with Kroil and dental picking, it looks very similar to Jim's.

I'm just stupid,

Think all you have is lead shaving  building up. Take a close look at my trailside in that area. I use a dental.pick to remove it

@sbtzc I bet it shoots great, the chamber looked especially good, with just a touch of rounding at the lower edge. And you can probably feel certain the previous owner didn't mess with it much!
