It's almost like there was some obstruction in the receiver that was hit. Broken hammer that was later replaced? Very curious.

I think the Bolt Carrier will have to be replaced. OR at least reshaped.
There are only 3 things that effect the force of which the bolt carrier is thrown back. Ammo, return spring, and gas pressure. With the top cover flying off, it's going to be gas pressure. Either he loads super hot ammo, or the gun is overgassed. I've never seen a worn spring let a bolt carrier hammer the trunnion that bad without help.

The wise, learn from the mistakes of others.
The smart, learn from their own mistakes.
The others, well......they just never learn.
