I'm really happy with my gun so far, it's solid as can be and is balanced really well.

I just have a small issue with the rear sight on mine, when the rear sight is flipped back, it does not "seat" and can/will wiggle in that state. Has anyone else had this problem? What did you do to fix it?

Sory i didnt see the g36 area. Do you mean it is not attached well? Or is it just wobbly?

Sorry, here are a couple of pictures to add clarity:

This is with the rear sight flipped forward. (100) It seats perfectly with a slightly audible "click" and will not wiggle, even when I tap it with my finger.

This is with it flipped rearward. (300) When set in this position, the sight is not clicked into place and has a lot of play when barely touched.

Im no moderater so i might not be right but it seems that part 121 or part 122 may be loose somehow.

No dice with either of those (they're the windage/elevation adjustment screws.) I tried adjusting both individually to either extreme short of removing them while flipping the aperture several times as I went. Then had the idea that maybe the elevation screw's head was too thick for the aperture to flip all the way, so I removed it and tried once more. Still the same thing. Maybe it's just the way this particular model's rear sight works?

My sons g36c rear sight is the same way. The movement though is front to back and not side to side and looking through it while moving it back and forth shows no real change in the sight placement. The sights are more accurate then the gun is capable of being so I didn't worry about it. Now he is using a eotech clone and doesn't use the sights anymore anyway.
