Welcome to the forums, and Chuck is right.  But his thread will give you more info.  Note: depending on where it is loose changes the fix significantly.

See here: http://www.kwausa.co...?showtopic=1533

Most of the time, the video shows the fix needed.

Thanks for the reply guys, i was changing the flash hider and when i was tightening it i noticed the outer barrel moved or can be twisted left and right.  I noticed the ring was not tight so i tightened it up but that didnt help.  I remember seeing a video how to fix the wobble but i cant find it yesterday.  So i need to find out how to tighten the outer barrel.  Thank you guys for the response.

I just checked the rail system if it moves and it does move too, so i need to tighten even the ring and i will need the tool for it.  Does anybody know where to find the video of fixing this wobble? Thanks
