Default Green eBay Laser housing question

I am swaping out the module in a cheap ebay laser housing (the black heavy one most commonly found on ebay) and ran into a situation; First I had a 'rough' time getting the original brass module out and had to punch it finally...The 12mm module Im putting in seems to fit loose in the housing - isnt this supposed to be a tight fit for the '+' connection? What am I missing here????

Well for one these modules are very cheap so their not all exactly 12mm. Even if it's just a quarter of a mm off it will fit loose. Also you might have opened up the opening in the laser by working so hard to get the old one out.

How loose is it? You might try and put a piece of tape on one side of the module then slide it in.

By the way you dont have to post twice it will piss people off and make them not want to answer you.
