Loose Trigger on Colt New Agent 9mm...?

I just got my Colt New Agent 9mm back from Colt. I had sent it to them for jamming. Haven't fired it since getting it back. But I noticed right away a little "clinking" sound, like something was loose. Finally figured out that it's the trigger. If I shake it a little in my hand, it clinks. And if I hold it in my fingers, I can wiggle it, like a loose tooth. I'm pretty sure it did not do this before I sent it off for repair.

I don't have any other gun that has a loosie-goosie trigger like this, but then again, this is my only 1911. I plan on calling Colt about it, but thought I'd get some thoughts from you guys, too. Should I be concerned about this...?

Not an issue, lots of 1911s rattle when you shake them. The question is how does it shoot, and did Colt fix the problem. Take it out and put some rounds through it.

S&W 1911 are like this also. They just assemble guns now a days . No real fitting going on.

Yeah, my New Agent in .45 does the same thing. Never bothered me, it's like the rattly foregrip on my 590A1.
