I cleaned my Mini 30 and noticed the nozzle for the gas block was loose. The allen bolts holding the block clamp to the barrel are all very tight. Any thoughts or concerns?

Thanks!

No worries, it is supposed to wiggle around. This helps the op-rod to go around it when it slams forward. If it were rigid, the op-rod might hit it a little off. The Allens on the gas block should be tightened in an alternating pattern to 25-30 inch pounds ( NOT foot pounds), and make sure the gap on either side is the same.
