Once they get a little age on them, they kinda flop a bit. I have the same issue on my Model 8. It's just pot metal. Maybe try slipping it over a couple of thin o-rings before bolting it back together.

I made that mistake, but I used a bit of silicon. Took me forever to get the blasted thing back apart.
