    The "set screws" don't do anything. If tightening the rail nut doesn't fix your issue, loosen the rail nut and remove the rails. The. Tighten the barrel nut, and reassemble.

    Yeah, the correct name is delta ring(it may be a barrel nut too, depending on the looks of it and the RIS design.). Try tightening it up with the RIS off. Then put the Rails back on and tighten the set screws and see if it helped. If not, some electrical tape may be needed on places where there is loose tolerances.

    The set screws on those rails don't do anything. I'm on my phone so I can't link anything to you, but go to google and search "KWA SR12 Rail Wobble", click on the result with that title. About half way down the thread is a video, watch the video.

    Edit: Here you go

    Hmm. Still doesn't hurt to tighten them up a little though.

    Electric tape tends to be a little thick. if anything listed in other comments doesn't help try Teflon tape on the threads.
