I was adjusting the reticle focus (diopter) on my SS 10x and noticed a little play in the eyepiece. The reticle and sight picture would move together as I wiggled it around. It's a small amount of play. Is this normal or something I should be concerned about? Thanks.

Many scopes with fast eyepiece focus have some small amount of wiggle and it is not a big deal.  However, I do not recall seeing it on a few SS scopes I have.

I just checked two other SWFA scopes I have and they do the same thing. I guess I can assume it's OK then?
