Occasionally a magazine may randomly require a small adjustment to function perfectly.  There can be any number of reasons why; sometimes machining variations between different manufacturers; sometimes aftermarket stocks or accessories may create a magazine feeding issue.   All random.

The fix is easily achievable; either reverse the main spring or adjust the follower.
