Any miter saw I have ever checked has side play; some just a little, some too much. The more moving parts in the chain, the more “slop” in the mechanism. Just try not to put any sideways pressure on the handle when pulling/pushing the cutting head. Miter saws, although pretty good for accurate cuts, was originally designed for the construction trade to replace the RAS. Cutting 2×4’s all day doesn’t need a lot of precision.
