I just got my 556 DMR tonight. Opened up the box and case and looked it over. The upper and lower seem quite loose (audible rattle when handling the rifle). Is this normal?

...honestly PGT...your DMR needs to go back for adjustment...that amount of play is unacceptable...and "may" lead to issues down the road...PGT said:I quite literally unboxed my rifle, snipped the zip-tie, opened the case, picked up the rifle with one hand on the stock and the other on the forend. it made noise. I held up the rifle with one hand vertically by the stock and wiggled it....it makes noise and it feels like the rifle is not 'one'.
Let me start off by saying if this "solution" worked for you than more power to you, but it really shouldn't be necessaryMPK61 said:My DMR upper to lower fit is fairly tight. However, my son's SCM upper to lower fit rattles as you described. We modified an AR 15 rubber wedge and placed it in the lower right were the upper lug would hit. After some extensive trimming of the wedge, the upper and lower fit were nice and tight.

...i would call Mike at Colorado Gun Sales and see if he can order you one of the Swiss factory grips...i see no reason why they will not mount on your DMR..although i have never changed one out personally...so i'm guessing...he should be able to give you a definative answer though...if i remember correctly...the grip interface on the sniper is the same as a 550/551...
