Are the magazines empty or loaded. If loaded how many rounds?

Drop down to 29 or 28 and see if that helps. I just got a few of their tan mags and they have worked decent so far.

Put light lube or your finger and rub it around the interior of the magwell.

It could be the that the mag release is to tight.

I hope it's not an out of spec magwell.

When I first completed my build, the lower did not like the aluminum mag I have but once it got a little wear in the magwell it was fine

It doesnt seem out of spec...just gritty/tight. Will take some gun oil with me to the range today and rub a little on the mag lips and well.

this kinda what i am thinking/hoping is going on. Aluminum is a "gritty" metal by nature...it may just need to work into itself a bit.

It might just be a case of a new gun/new user being a bit paranoid.

I should prolly run a couple 50/100 mags thru it before i start thinking to much. Kinda let everything get broke in and mated to each other.
