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

Can only get one per post
Since I have limited knowledge of the M -14 I am not sure what the normal look of the selector area should look like. I am comparing to other pics. I can see that something in the area of the switch has been changed.
Ok so if this gun falls into the "grandfathered" area and is legal what actions should be taken. Does it require paperwork, registration from local or federal,or does person in possession simply show the upset party the crude welds and say it's a Hahn custom get lost?
Ok thank you all for the help. I'm assuming I will grind selector switch because the gun cannot be disassembled and selector removed manually.
This gun is one of the finest shooting guns I have had my hands on when properly operating, my guy did say it needed a new roller and I'm sure I can find one here from a member.
