You might have it on wrong. Mine fits securely. Make sure you have the hook on the barrel nut correctly and tighten the allen screw. Make sure you don't over tighten the screw.

If you have it installed right there shouldn't be any losseness. The barrel nut gas tube slots should rest in the two reference pins and the clamp should pull it tight.
Is the whole thing loose or jsut the bottom?

Alright then, you might have an abused bottom unit. That sounded kind fo dirty didn't it?
Anyway, did you buy it new or used?
There is an SAS bottom unit for the M4 systems that clamps like the upper, and they might make one for the M5, but I don't really know. Might want to look at their website.
Otherwise, it is not unusual to have some fore and aft movement in the bottom piece. That's part of why you don't see OTALs and such mounted down there. It's mainly for the VFG or lights, and it doesn't really matter if those shift around some.
