Question Beaver tail rattle??

Soooo...
Was testing my RIA 2011 Tactical in some holsters I had laying around and while testing a particularly tight fitting holster I heard a "click". I then noticed the beaver tail rattling when I moved the gun in my hand side to side. As far as I can remember there was no rattle before.

I just got this thing home and have not even had a chance to take it to the range yet. This is my first 1911 so I'm unfamiliar with this action. Anyone else see this in theirs? Did I break something?

Any help would be appreciated. I posted it here in gunsmith section figuring that if I did break something you cool cats could help with fixin ideas.

Thanks.

You need to add more tension to the right finger of the sear spring. If you don't know how to do that, find someone familiar with 1911's to do it for you.
