G29 magazine issues

I have six Glock 29 magazines that when fully loaded won't allow my slide to be racked with any reasonable amount of effort and some won't rack at all. I've noticed that If I take at least one round out it racks perfectly. I've just about ruined ten rounds trying to break them in and so far only have three that even remotely resemble a correctly working magazine.

The pressure when fully loaded is also causing the metal feed lips to bend outwards which makes some top rounds sit at a different angle than others.

These are all brand new or almost new magazines with pearce grip extensions installed.

Also I've noticed that the where the mag catch contacts the mag is quickly wearing out.

I've only had one failure to feed and one bad primer for a total of two failures out of around 300 rounds.

Is this normal? My G30 never had any magazine issues!

Is it unreasonable to expect my mags to just work? I don't mind them being hard to load but this is crazy!

I tried searching the forums for my problems but kept getting the following error:
