    They will fall out on there own if you hold the weapon sideways when it is out of the stock.

    What can I do to tighten the pins up. Maybe it just does not matter.

    Any suggestions or comments

    Its generally not a big dealsince the stock hold them in. But there are oversized pins, and even a jig system to pin the receiver through the stock itself for extra rigidity. If you are having any malfunctions it might be worth addressing the issue.

    Check to see if the ejector is bent in your Glock too.

    OK, just kidding .... it's normal, nothing to worry about.

    Mine's done the same for years, not a big deal at all. It's from the receiver being stretched due to the bolt battering the back of it. You can cure it with the mentioned over sized pins and a bolt buffer.
