So i wanted to upgrade my pistol grip to a MOE-K style grip, bought it and put it on. Now the grip wobbles front to back not a lot but enugh to annoy me. btw the stock grip had absolutly no wobble before i put the new one on.  I thought it just might be that the K grip so i bought a MOE+ and it wobbles just as much. i found out its actualy part #11-5 (the part the grip screws into)  thats wobbleing. anyone have any ideas how to fix?

From extremal observation the Grip Base just drops or slides into the receiver, I don't see anything securing it.  I have an old USGI M16A1 pistol grip on my LM4 (I never did like the A2 grip with the finger thingie) and it's very secure.  I'm guessing it's your grip not being tight enough to the lower receiver.  Especially since the original grip was and, I assume, is still tight.

The screw may not be tightening down enough.  Stick a washer under it inside the pistol grip and see if that helps.  On my FAB grip, the screw is very close to the size of the hole and the grip wobbled slightly like yours. i stuck a washer under it to prevent any damage to the grip over time as well as attempt to fix the wobble.  No problems or wobble now.

Ditto, a washer worked for me and other Member of this Forum.

i tryed the washer long ago. but i just tryed adding 1 more and a shorter screw... no change to both grips. i am preplexed! if you guys take your grips off dose the part 11-5 wiggle or is it 100% solid? so far the only fix is buy craming aeg shims between the lower receiver and the top back of the grip but its unsightly and i know its not right.
