mags that would splay out at the top..." Stored/transported how? Drop 'em a lot? Mags with spread lips tend to double feed and such, but ejection has nothing to do with it.
Stored empty, in a padded nylon pouch.

Dropped six or ten times each, every match.

Never any issues with feeding, they'd splay enough that the tubes would drag on the sides of the frame above the trigger tracks. It wasn't the feedlips, but the small "ears" just forward of the formed lips.


I also had a set of mags that did spread at the lips, and those would eject rounds at the worst time, usually up into the magwell where I'd try to compress them against the slide on reloads.
Those mags had a heat-treat or dimensional issues, and were replaced by the manufacturer.
