Just a little advice for our newer inexperienced builders. I got a hand select kit from Tapco that was in pretty good shape except for a little rust and wear here and there. No biggie except that the firing pin was rusted closed in the bolt in the fired position. Now if someone didn't know better and assembled the kit and cycled the action with a live round it could have been a disaster. Without a doubt it would have slam fired before the bolt locked up and causing damage to both the firearm and individual; not to mention where it might have been pointed. Just food for thought.

SEND IT BACK AND GET ANOTHER. You paid extra for a hand select you deserve better. TAPCO has great servce and will make it good.
