I noticed my Z5K the stock handguard has a little play and the us grip I put on has a lot of play....Up and down and side to side.

Does this come up from time to time?

yep.. my US grip was all over the place. It seems the holes are oversized. I can't suggest you try this because it was a sticky mess, but i slathered everything but the grip with oil. cleaned the grip with degreaser, scored up the inside of the grip holes with some sandpaper, installed the grip carefully and then ran a little gorilla glue into the holes around the pin with an old needle oiler. A LITTLE. LITTLE.. can't stress that enough. anyway, after about 24 hours, i pulled off the handguard (the pin didn't stick too bad, had to tap it out with a hammer though) and cleaned up the holes a little with a razor (the gorilla glue expands a lot), indexed and widened them just a touch and its much much better. Not perfect, but much better. I don't know if it'll last, but i think gorilla glue is basically plastic so it may be GTG.

i thought about just buying a german one but then id be out of 922r compliance. besides, i have no way of knowing if those would fit any better.

yeah, the US made full size MP5 handguard seems to fit really well. the shorty with the vert grip is another story!

I am not sure if this is the fault of the Z-5P or the US handguard. I have a few of them now and in all cases, the handguards from HKParts were a little loose. The ones I got from RTG parts fit much tighter.

Unfortunately the ones (which says they are SW) from RTG are out of stock at this time.
