Default Hatchet job on an AR

No. 1 Son has arrived for 5 days, (with the Grankids, YES) He brought me a AR that he bought for a song from a Sailor going to sea. He told me before I got to excited to look at the chamber. and feed ramps. Looks like someone tried to make A4 feed ramps with a hatchet. I have spent about 3 hours with a needle file and stone to get them half way cleaned up. I Flushed the chamber and everything out with brake cleaner. Found a lot of trash in it. It came with 2 Sig-Sauer 30 round mags, (tupperware) and would not feed from either. Works good with the three green follower clips I have. Why, some people think they are gunsmiths is a mystery to me. The only reason I fooled with it was I figured I could do no more damage. Excuse me, I got some serious spoiling to attend to.

Don't blame the tool, blame the fool.

If you cant fix the sailor job just buy a new barrel and run the gun. If he did not play with anything else

Time to break out the DREMEL tool

Worst case scenario, if you still can't clean it up, would be a new barrel, possibly new upper receiver if he cut into that, too.
