Hahn help

Hi guys great sight. I am no expert on the m-14 trying to learn.
My most important question for the experts here will be is the gun legal for a regular Joe to own?
This gun was taken to a gun guru because the rod would disconnect from the bolt sometimes after many shots often blamed on cheap ammo.
The guru was not happy and said the gun was not legal to own.
So with a flashlight and Google and researching this site, the gun was discovered to have very lightly etched marks with "Hahn machine st Charles".
The selector switch will move but has never been switched to try at range.
Also the gun appears to have a modified number looks like heat was involved changing outside numbers it is now only stamped with two digits.
So what do the experts say legal or not

I would have no problem owning a Hahn conversion if I could confirm that it was a real Hahn. The problem is that the ones I have seen for sale on the web have had many different types of markings. Some have stamped markings and some have crudely hand etched markings, some are marked below the wood line, some are marked above the wood line.

I'll add that my understanding is that all Hahn conversions should have had the selector lug removed and the op rod cut filled in by welding.
