For the CF29 owners who have done the CF30 handle swap, have you noticed any issues with fitting?

I ask because I've just swapped out the handle on my CF30 for one from a CF29 (didnt want the stylus holder and I like the feel of the 29 handle over the 30) and its gone from being a light snap in fit to needing to almost force or bang the handle to get it to click into place, and I can pick up and carry my 30 without unsnapping the handle, to get it to release I need to pull hard on it or jerk the 30 down while holding the handle.....

The difference is enough to make it feel like my 30's handle wouldnt click home at all on a 29.....

Or have I just lucked out and found a near new handle?

No not really. The handle was not really made to fit on it.
