Normal?

It has a bit of side to side wobble (hardly any) and I can wiggle the handguards clockwise and counter clockwise just a bit.

Never owned an AR before so IDK if this is normal.

Thanks!

For plastic hanguards, thats normal.

Nature of the beast, some are tighter than others but method of attachment allows for some movement.

Play in the handguards? Are you sure it's a real Colt?

Better to have a rail put on and use the hand guards for it.

I assume that's a joke.

The weapon is fine shoot it and determine your needs to accessorize after some use. The handguards will have some minor movement but it is not a concern.

Normal for the AR-15 platform, that is the reason that mounting optics or laser aiming devices directly to the hanguard or rail systems that mount in the same manner as the handguard is unacceptable (movement = inability to hold zero). It is the reason for the development of free floating rail systems.

On a side note damn the furniture on Colts has gotten really cheezy as of late

Only additions I see in the future are a Trijicon RX30 and maybe a CTR stock.

I dislike rails.
