Default o.s. .46 fx

im wondering if its normal for the engine to be "tight" before its run. Engine has never ran to much knowledge and will not turn by hand. I got this engine on a trade. Is this normal? will it loosen up on break in??

It is normal because of the design of this engine (conical liner).
It would be abnormal in a ring type engine.
After break in the engine you will note that it will turn more freely with enough compression.
