Micro 9 hand grip lose

Got back from the range and cleaning the micro and the right bottom hand grip is lose. The screw is tight. Any ideas? Thanks.

The grip screw stud is stripped.

Or the screw hole in the grip is drilled out too big.

Yeah, the frame insert stud is loose. Just back the screw out. The insert will come with it. Once the grip is off, grab the insert (being careful not to damage the threads) and remove the screw from the insert. Use a bit of blue locktight when you screw the insert back into the frame.

can I ask how long you've had the pistol, and how many times have you removed the grips?

I don’t have a Micro 9 but if the Micro 9 is like my Sig P938 there are no bushings, the grip screws thread into the frame. Is the Micro 9 different ?

They are rosewood. The screw does not move but the grip moves from side to side just a little. Tried to tighten the allen screw but the torque started to get excessive. Less than 80 rnds shot through it. Never removed the grips. Did try to remove the screw but that also was going to go beyond the torque I deemed would work. Waiting for RMA.
