I believe you can get a C clamp and put a little tension on the mag.  Pinch it if you will and leave it sit over night.

Troy should be along shortly to give you the exact details.

this is the reply I recived from Troy



Yes, you can use a clamp, vice, or even channel lock pliers to squeeze the mag body a bit. Usually the problem is at the top rear, where the mag is weakened by the bolt stop slot. Find out where it is too wide and clamp there. Pad the mag with something so you don't mark it up.
