Nope. There's supposed to be a slight bend in it.

Yep, supposta be bent.

How smooth it glides in the receiver track and op rod guide and runs you bolt is what's important.

My dad told me about this when I was a little kid.

He was in WWII. Some of the guys straightened theirs and had problems.

Some things are so important they are worth remembering for 50+ years.
