Sicker cats than that have lived .That one from the picture doesn't look that bad .Even if you break the ring getting it out a generic ring is only 5-6 bucks .

Use a little Scotch brite pad and  kerosine and you should be able to get the tramp aluminum out of the cylinder .Fine sand clothe and kerosine  and sand the piston .A low spot won't  generally hurt you unless its large .A high spot breaks the surface tension of the oil film and will .If the ring groove is screwed up you can use a finger nail file and clean it up .

I've done a lot of half-fast fixes that are still running and running well I might .Contrary to popular belief things don't have to be perfect .Remember you're not building a 16,000 RPM alkie burning piped hot saw .
