I received my Base "Uni" yesterday. But there are two distinct things I want to ask.

First, the barrel screws on the section with a click and then it has a "play" or "free movement" of approximately 1 mm i.e. the barrel and section can be rotated against each other to 1mm which very annoying while writing becuse they feel to be moving.

Second, the same is with the cap and the pen also. After capping, the cap and the pen rotates freely to some 1 to 1.5 cm either ways, to the right or to the left. Does Schneider Base sport these features or mine is a mis aligned/ faulty one?

1. My pen does not rotate after the click. The nib aligns itself with the flat surface of the barrel. That's it. 
2. The cap rotates quite freely after posting. 

I guess your pen can "ONLY" be termed faulty if there's flow issues or nib issues. YMMV 

Cheerio!

Yes Anirban, you might be right about that.

But it's really annoying when you find some "movement" in your pen while writing...it's just distracting. And the same is true when the cap or barrel keeps moving ever after the cap has clicked/ snapped on the barrel.

Here let me clarify one small thing, I'm talking about "closeing" the cap on the pen, not "posting".
