Pentax 200mm 3.5 lens focus ring issue?

A couple days ago I bought a 200mm f3.5 Takumar from Ebay for $90, and the lens is in amazing condition cosmetically and optically, the only this that has been bugging me is that the focus ring kind of wobbles a little and when i push it up with my hand it moves like feels like its a bit loose, and i was wondering if that was usual for these taks..if not, how can i fix it? Other than that it moves smoothly and there are no other issues.

None of the 15 or so other Taks I have does thqat. I find their focus rings much more steady than some of the few other lenses I have.
