If you ever have misfeed problems from one of the older magazines, or a later magazine that shows wear, try using ammo with truncated cone bullets.
The original milspec ammo used the truncated cone bullet, and misfeeds only became a problem when they switched to the ogive and round nose bullets.

If the notch in the magazine, or the catch itself, is worn or cut too low the magazine sits too low for positive feeding of the more common rounded nose FMJ bullets. The feed is more forgiving when the truncated cone bullet is used.
