For those of you that have a 98A bolt peep on your Winchester 71....is there any play “wiggle” between the actual aperture and the sight body in the area that the aperture is dove tailed into the sight body?

My M71 with the 98A has zero play in the dovetail. My M65's peep has some wiggle.........I'm guessing .010"..... but it is missing the nut on the windage adjustment screw which would snug it up some.
