Marred Valve Retaining Nut in T2

I did a complete strip down on my T2 for the first time this weekend (Huge thanks to Talfuchre for the incredible video series!) and noticed that a previous owner had tightened the valve retaining nut set-screw down hard enough to dent it up pretty badly.

Is this something I should worry about or replace?

That's from the set screw preventing that nut from backing out

Mine is like that on my s6

I clean up the threads a bit before I put it back in my gun though

Chasing with a tap would be ideal - but I find some GENTLE work with a triangle file will leave it good as new.

I'll give it a little cleanup for now and will add a new one to my next shopping list with Mel. Thanks all!

DMC. I honestly wouldn't worry about it. I have ones that have about ten of these spots. I have cleaned them up a bit - and they work just fine.

Think of it as character, that is how I feel about scratches and nicks. They collectively tell the story of the marker.

To prevent that you could always get a nylon tipped set screw from mcmastercarr.

Figured that is something that they would do from the factory.
