Magazine Fit Issues

    I bought some 20 round Hungarian magazines from AIM surplus and they are a very tight fit on the frontal area of the magazine to the point where it is difficult to insert and remove magazines. The rifle is a romanian G parts kit and a ohio ordnance works receiver.

    It looks like the area where it's too tight is towards the front of the magwell on either side where it necks down to a narrower opening.

    Do I just gently file the sides of the magwell, or will that affect the fit and function of the regular 30 rounders? They are a little tight as well but not nearly as bad as the 20 rounders.

    I had the same problem on some of my polymer mags and I filed them down just enough to get them to fit properly.All the steel mags fit fine. sj

    I found that with the metal mags, if you just insert and remove the mag several times, it will eventually fit like a glove... I had a couple tight Chinese mags and all I did is just put it in and take it out about 30 times and now they fit perfect.

    Good luck.
