I can see it move when I engage/disengage the safety. How do I fit that?

There's a tool to restake it. I think Brownells sells it. It may be cheaper to have an experienced gunsmith do it.

Yes, have a good experienced smith restake it. If you decide to DIY, be certain to put something like a piece of welding rod, etc. in the tube so you don't collapse it.

Restaking may work fine...if there is enough material to stake.
A call to Springfield may be in order, they should advise your next course of action.



I called Springfield and they said they'd refund the shipping costs up to $50 if the problem is a warranty issue, which she said it most likely is.
I called the gun shop and they'd send it to Springfield for $40. It slipped my mind what you said about sending just the frame. Can I send JUST the frame w/o having to go overnight?

Join the club, mine loosened up after 200 shots.

I talked to a local smith and he said he's had quite a few Springfields come though with loose plunger tubes. I'm shocked cause the stainless mil-spec I had last year was flawless. Kinda wish I'd kept it.

Got it back a few days ago, good as new! I shipped the lower half via USPS and they shipped it back overnight FedEx.
