Is the asa wobbling along with the tank or is it just the tank? Make sure the asa screws aren't loose. Also, check the threads on your tank and asa to make sure they are good. Finally, make sure you screw in the tank correctly, and all the way.

if its done it on 2 different guns the tank threads might be a little worn, not a big deal as you can buy a new bonnet for around $15 for most of them. (the threaded part) but first make sure your screwing it in all the way and that something else isnt loose.

Inside the handle at the very bottom are two screws. Those screws hold the ASA(air source adapter, or the thing that the tank screws into) in place. If those aren't tight the ASA will wobble and if you let it get too lose the ASA will slide off entirely.

Yea sounds like you just have to screw the ASA screws in tighter.

If its your valve on the tank. I wouldn't risk it unless you find someone who can fix it

I borrowed a tank for my Ego 8 one day and noticed that it didn't quite screw all of the way in. It would jiggle a bit in a twisting motion. I have used a few tanks on that gun and none have done it except for that one. If it is wobbling along the twisting axis that could be your issue as well. It worked perfectly well for the day I used it.
