    Most all of those I've had on my bench act the same way. It's due to the head on that tiny little screw that holds the thumb piece in place, sometimes:



    I replaced that screw on my Mark IV Competition Target with a screw having a larger head that holds the thumb piece in place much better. The addition of this screw does require that a dimple be placed on the inside face of the left grip panel so the grip fits flush against the grip frame. All that's needed to do is twirl a ¼ inch drill bit into that panel deep enough to allow the grip to fit flush once again.

    Thank you so much,was hoping you had an answer,its fine when together,just seems a little loose when apart,thought I might have lost a piece when I installed Volquartsen kit,but the tiny spring is still tucked away in there under it,again always appreciate your knowledge and experience
