You could literally pick up two "identical" models, one would make noise like a Rattler's tail and the other would be near perfect fit by inspection.
If you have one that shoots & performs, you got one of their quality ones and they are quite good, considering the materials, timeframe of the production and the fact that they were pretty far out on the "copy/clone" branch.
If it commonly misfires, doesn't eject, won't open or close when warm, YES you have something to worry about.
