The rings are well... shot. Do I take it to a gunsmith or do it myself?

Do the rings pass the PM test?

to remove you need a small screwdriver or awl. lift one end up and out and work around in a cirular fashion. Repeat for a total of 3 times.

Install is in reverse order,no need for the awl on install.

How can you tell if the rings are shot?

strip the carrier of the firing pin and cam pin. reinstall the bolt, but nothing else. turn carrier with bolt in carrier vertical. Have bolt facing the ground.

If bolt falls out. you need new rings. If bolt stays in. you do not need new rings.
