1 - care and maintenance, and safety instructions. To ensure that you do not damage your firearm, please make sure that you do not use any force during the installation of your Conversion Unit.

Sorry lefties, but our Conversion Unit will not work in a left-handed rifle.
Our Conversion Unit will work with any style trigger group provided the hammer spring has enough force to detonate the rim fire cartridges. If the hammer will detonate a 5.56 primer it will most likely be strong enough.
25 - Will the Target Master Conversion Unit work in a .223 chambered rifle?
Our conversion kit is designed to fit and function in a 5.56 chamber only.
26 - Will the Target Master Conversion kit damage the buffer retaining pin in my rifle?
Our unit depresses the buffer retaining pin and holds it down out of the way. This allows the buffer itself to keep positive pressure on the unit helping to prevent movement in t he upper receiver during the light recoil of the .22. The unit is also held firmly between the upper and lower receivers by the tab just above the buffer to further maintain its firm position.
