Mine has some, and it got a little worse through handling. How bad WILL it get? What is the fix? (Buy an "new" folder trunion and replace? Send it "back" to Century?) When you shoulder it properly, it locks fine, but it would be nice for it to be 100% tight.

It will never be 100% tight. When you depress the folder push button it will expose a nut on the right side. Tightening this nut will help some. You have to remove the pin keeping it in place first. Keep in mind what the folder was designed for.

This is one of the drawbacks to an underfolder. Sooner or later they all develope a little play in them. It's perfectly normal for this to occur. JoeBud is right though, tightening the nut a little should help some. On a side note, the worst play I ever had in a folding stock was on a Valmet sidefolder. That stock really had some play in it. I'd rather have the up and down play than the sideways play that the Valmet had.

JoeBud: I see pins and holes, but no nut.

It doesn't look like a typical nut. Its the part with all the holes in it. The pin prevents it from loosening. Here's a picture.

Kit build or CAI build? Just curious.

My guess would be a Century build.

Mine is a Century build - on another thread I have a trigger reset problem ID-d. That may be gone - I cannot duplicate it in dry firing. Overall the rifle is nice, and feeds SP/HP fine.
