Insight - Tool marks on piston - problem?

I just acquired an insight in trade and was doing some maintenance to get familiarized with the platform. When I took apart the regulator I noticed tool marks on the piston surrounding the oring groove. These tool marks have led to some minor scratching inside the reg housing as well. I'm curious if this is an issue or something I need not worry about.

Also, silly me didn't know not to take the top half of the reg off(until reading) and when I took it apart, I noticed the oring inside was pretty shredded and a small piece is trapped in the air passageways. Does anyone know the size of this oring and how I can remove that shredded piece?

Any help is much appreciated!

Yeah, I was going to recommend giving them a call. I would think that if the piston is leaving scratches in the inside of the reg, that that would cause issues with it's functionality. I would suspect you would want to replace that piston before more damage is done.

They actually suggested just taking some fine grain sand paper to the piston to smooth out the tool marks, so I'm going to give that a go this evening.
