how mine looks (I'll take a pic to show you)all I did was take the spring set screw out of the bolt cleaned the ball end, oiled it put it back in, then tightened it down(it still clicks up and down just fine) and I have yet to have a problem with it over six months later.

Glad to hear, there great guns with simple fixes to silly problems.
Edit: You can clearly see the rub marks from the pin being inside the bolt, as well as the hammer wear on the flats and end of the pin. And yes my bolt is cut
