Nifty 50 feel so flimsy?

I picked up a used EF 50mm f1.8 from a seller on eBay and the lens feels so fragile. I saw a "metal based" nifty 50 on eBay as well, so I am guessing the fact that one I have is all plastic makes it feel this way.

The Mk II is designed to be as cheap as possible.

So it's not uncommon for it to feel "loose" and rattle?

If I shake it gently it kind of "rattles". Doesn't sound like lose glass, just not a tightly fitting product.

It's called a thrifty 50 for a reason. It's plasticky, but still a good performer.
