The small circle is proper staking, some times it is even staked all down the side of the key too. The big circle could be a couple of things. Like they said, a burr, or you're upper receiver and or carrier are out of spec. The last thing could just be poor quality carrier coating.

They just look like good stakes to me. Hard to tell from the blurry pics but they look like my BCM BCG stakes do.

Since staking is a method if displacing metal, there will be variations if where that metal gets displaced to. Some will go up, some will go in, and some will go out around the sides. The displaced metal is behind the higher tube of the gas key and is not likely to scratch or mar the receiver.

If you are concerned about sharp edges cutting you while cleaning, or just snagging then you can take a fine file and dehorn the sharp edge a bit.

Thanks for the help appreciate it just haven't seen any others like it probably just how they stake it but seemed very odd compared to what I have seen.

Looks like a really good hand staking job. The bigger name (Colt, BCM, DD) use a device similar to a MOAKS which makes the staking much more uniform and pretty.
