I'm not new to Ar15/M4's/M16's. However, I never had a situation like this. I fired 3 rounds from my magazine, unloaded, and ejected the round in the chamber so I can go forward and check my target. The round in the chamber had a dent in it from the firing pin. Of course, my Ar15 is SA only. Need I worry. Is this normal? Slamfire potential (I'm not sure)

normal - no firing pin block or return spring - pins continues forward until it hits the primer. No danger - it doesn't have enough enertia to fire the primer itself.

if it don't,, I'd be checking to see if it's carboned up or gunked up.

Oh My God!!!

What are you trying to do to this guy? Clearly, the ammunition and weapon are both defective and need to be destroyed immediately!!! Send all ammunition and weapon to me ASAP for proper disposal. Overnight shipping preferred. Do it for the children...

Accidental discharges do occur because of the floating firing pin. Some have suggested a lighter firing pin, holding the barrel horizontal or up to reduce the firing pins impact on the primer. Most of the AD's, while chambering, have occurred when the barrel was pointed down. Some people do not let the bolt "slam" forward when charging, they ride it down. Please understand that this is very rare but it reminds us to keep the barrel pointed in a safe direction, especially when chambering a round at home in the living room!

NEVER hang on the Charge Handle

If you have a GOOD AR15 then you are fine
