BNIB 597 has a loose trigger group. Normal?

I just had delivered, a synthetic stock HB 22LR 597. The trigger guard was loose in the stock. I though something was just assembled poorly. When I took it apart, I discovered the whole trigger assembly is moving in the receiver. Is this normal?

That is indeed normal. I have put tape on the sides of my trigger assembly to tighten it up a little. I don't think the loose assembly causes any problems though.

Metal duct tape, the real stuff, cut into strips makes a pretty good 'poor man's bedding' job and compresses very little if at all.

Thanks for letting me know. It is a little disappointing but I'll tape it and move on...

Neither of mine wriggled when new but I guess apparently some do.

I personally have not owned a 597, but given the type of stock and the price range, it doesn't surprise me at all. I don't think accuracy would be affected much if at all.

It is actually the trigger group housing moving inside the action so even with a tight fit in the stock the trigger group can move around.

I'll have to try the metal tape on my 10/22s, they tend to be loosey goosey.

I picked up that tip from Vincent while hanging around the 10/22 SuperStock Forum back in the day.
