Default Magazine release not catching

On one of my builds I have to jam the mag in with force to get it to catch. Could I have screwed the mag release in too much when I installed it? Should I take my bolt release off and back the mag release off a turn?
It happens with all my mags, even the pmag.
Help would be apprieciated.

I didn't need to remove bolt release to back mag release button off a turn. I did back it out one turn and it did help but still requires more force than some of my others
