New mags have stiff springs, especially in the subcompacts, that squeeze every possible round into a tiny space.

Over time, the springs will loosen.

You can shoot, shoot shoot, and wait. (You have alot of mags to break in)
or
Load one less round (8+1 ain't bad), and live with it.
or
Chest press: This is my invention. every night press a fully loaded mag into the well (press, release, press, release), do it 200 times while watching TV. Over the course of a week that mag will be fine.
Repeat with other mags. That's why my pecs are so big.

BTW this is similar to how I smoothed out my G21SF ambi release, too. Just worked it with a loaded mag until it smoothed out. Took about a week.
