    The only other possibility is the receiver holes are wallowed out and oblong. I bought a beater HK91 years ago that had been used as a bullet hose- roller marks that looked like speed bumps and receiver holes that were like pushing a hotdog through a hallway. It had been run with zero bolt gap for no telling how long. Fortunately metal can always be easily repaired.

    Howdy. I have noticed this condition with most HK 91's - four out of my six for example, to include two new in the box - so to me it is pretty normal. I like a small dab of good 'ol fashioned rubber cement on the front surface of the trigger housing and/or rear surface of the magwell ( where the two contact each other ) and the slop is gone. Let the cement dry for about 20 minutes before you re-assemble and it will stay put and do the job for, well a long, long time and much dis-assembly / re-assembly. The minute you no longer want the rubber cement on your weapon it will rub off just with thumb / fingers with zero trace of ever having been there. This little trick also works well for handguards with a little slop in them, be it fore and aft or up / down play. Just apply cement carefully to the handguard surfaces that interface with the weapon itself. Take your time and you can get a neat, professional result that is out of sight / out of mind. Hope this helps.

    Here’s what I used to do: Buy another lower and swap them out. Or, if you have a second 91, swap them out with each other. It always fixed that problem. It was a normal thing for the 91’s and 93’s. A few would do that, but most wouldn’t. Never had to use any tape or anything. It used to bug the Hell out of me as I hated that back and forth movement.

    Rifleman8, that sounds like a good possibility. I'll look into it. Thanks for the reply

    Keep in mind that unless you actually have multiple HK91s to swap housings between, you will most likely be buying a surplus G3 housing and thus need to have the shelf installed prior to being able to utilize it.

    Just be sure it's been clipped and pinned. They won't all have shelves, I cut the shelves into the ears so I don't have to weld and refinish.
