Why not put them next to each other instead of having one lower than the other? Am I missing something? Thanks.

You're missing the ejection port....If they are equal the exiting round will smack into the other mag. Or, if the port is closed, it won't open because the other mag is in the way.

Thank you, sir. Since I'm putting some mags together it's better to know this ahead of time than finding out the hard way. Is there a specific distance people use for AR mags or do you just eyeball it?

Not just the ejection port. It can also block the mag release button.

port door

i like em flushed--easier to slap in the whole thing

h/w, the ejection port door can fall on top of the mag and not go flat with parallel w/ the reciever and cause shells to get stuck
