Just bought a new Gen 4 and one of the Mags follower is stuck. Looks like its not seated right. Would you guys take it appart and try to fix it or take the mag to the store?

It's probably not anything too involved, so I personally would probably take it apart and see if I can fix it.

However, you'd be totally right to expect a new magazine to work and I could see where this could affect your confidence in that magazine.  I certainly wouldn't fault you for returning it.

To me, it's six of one or a half dozen of another,

How's that for being no help whatsoever?

Well I am afraid if I cannot fix it then then if I try to return it they will think I broke it.

disassembly of the magazine is easy enough to do without damaging/altering the magazine.

why not dissassemble it, look for snags, nicks, mould lines, etc, put it back together and see what happens?

I have had three of the newest generation of G19 mags fail.  At first they will begin to rattle with loose rounds in the center of that stack, then later will jam up.  These are not Korean or other manufacturer.
