If there’s forward/aft movement as well, it’s likely your selector hole is out of tolerance/worn or again, the Geissele selector wasn’t machined correctly.

Brand new rifle, so the selector hole being worn is out.

I had previously installed an XTS branded selector and that thing had zero movement. So it's likely the Geissele selector might be the issue.

It's not that much movement (I don't have a tool to really measure just how much) but it's not that noticeable unless you really look for it.

I'm waiting on a response from Geissele. If they think it's out of spec, I may have to return it for a replacement.

I recently pulled my Saiga-12 conversion out of the back of the safe, and remembered how much I love the SAW style grip. Does anyone know if SAW type grips are available for ARs? My google searching just turned up a bunch of links to out-of-stock TAPCO products, and mostly for AKs at that.
