While cleaning my FA 1919 after shooting ~250 rds of .308, I noticed that the sear had chipped. Can this be an indication of incorrect part fit or is it par for the course?

This is not manifested when I run my 1919 in 54R (barrelxchange conversion). Link to picture below, would you:
- Get rid of it - buy another off paintmanmatt
- Put it in the deep spare parts bin
- Use it until something breaks

They are cheap enough, why run a damaged part.

They break. It's a 60-80 year old part. No reason you shouldn't have at least a half dozen in your toolkit. Heave it and don't look back.

If all you need is the full auto sear they should be easy enough and cheap enough to find since most kits are built as semi autos most of the guys have no use for the ones that came with their kits. I would get a couple so you have a spare as Shattered said they do have a bit of age on them at this point in the game so it is good to have one in the range bag.

FYI - Nothing else happened

Put a new sear in and fired about 750 rds, no issues, looks brand new still. So I'm guessing the first time chipping was a fluke.
