Angry SS Target II rear sight

My very new SS Target II rear adjustable sight wiggles in its dovetail. This is the first 1911 I have ever had that did this. Since I am paper puncher I need good accuracy and this wiggling sight is probably not too good for my purpose.
Any thoughts on how to correct this? Prefer not to have to install a new sight!

Don't recall if there is a set screw but if it's not that loose and there is no way to tighten it, just a drip or so of the green and let it set a day.
