i have a 10 rd magazine for my AR but for some reason when i put 10 RDS in it and try to insert it in the lower it just wants to be a bitch to snap in? if i take one round out it snaps right in.

is this normal being my first AR i am not sure on this.
if not what is the fix?

This is common with 10 round pistol mags too. The manufacturer want to be sure that an overwilling ATF agent couldn't get 11 rounds in and then charge the company with selling so-called 'high capacity' magazines that aren't marked for LE/Gov't use only.

Sometimes having the bolt back helps.

This is normal, but for most of us, the fix is to chuck it and get some USGIs
