Hello,
I live in France and I am one of the few owner of ruger . I come to you as to whether this wear is normal in the upper . The gun fired about 800 shots but the wear seems more progress in 500 hits.
Thank you for your answer

I would be inclined to send those photos to Ruger. You'll probably want to email them and wait for a reply, letting them know you have photos you would like to send, when you get a reply, you can attach the photos to your reply.

I'm sorry, I looked at the pictures and I'm not sure I understand or see a problem.

Are pointing out the places where the finish has worn out because of normal operation of the weapon? I would expect the finish to be worn off normal places of wear in less than 100 rounds. Perhaps less if the gun is not lubricated correctly.

Perhaps I do not understand what I am seeing.

So we can be sure we are together:

Are you talking about the "Bolt cam Pin" part #62 in the SR556 Exploded Diagram that is in the manual?

I am sorry for the delay. I was hoping to find an AR556 at my local store but I have not.

I did look at my Stag Model 8 AR. I has maybe 1000 rounds through it. I has the black finish warn off it like your gun has. Again, I firmly think this is totally normal.

I also looked at my wife's Stag 1L (Left hand). It has not been fired very much at all. It still has all of it's black finish in side.

But I think the thing you are questioning is the small carved out section that is very clear in your pictures. My gun, the Stag 8, has such a place too. But it is not so big as yours.

Perhaps it is a matter of the photographs. Perhaps you should make sure that your pin is moving easily and you have enough lubrication. ARs are known to like more lubrication than normal guns.

I'm afraid that's all I can offer you at this time. However, if you can think of something I'll be glad to do what I can for you.

Regards,
Spike

I went and looked at the pictures on a bigger screen. I guess I'm with Spike12- I don't see any unusual wear. I will also concur with what he said about lubrication. AR's like to be run "wet." Keep it clean and well oiled.

Looks like the same wear I see on my SR556, I have over 2000 rounds through my gun and it has been 100% reliable. I say don't worry about it, it is normal wear.

I just came back from the local store and they had a NEW AR556. I also talked to their AR specialist to whom I described your pictures.

1) Remove the bolt from the bolt carrier and remove the gas seals. The bolt should move smoothly inside the bolt carrier

2) Once reassembled, make sure the pin travels smoothly and freely.

3) You may try slightly rounding and polishing the edges and of the pin.

Besure you are using a light oil and not grease.

I think the OP has a SR556, not a AR556. No gas seals on the SR.
