What part of the mag rubs, though? (some wear marks should be visible..)

front and back mostly 1or 2 mags had very small scratches.

Yeah, probably the magwell.

I'd give the company a call.

I found the problem, apparently the front radius of the trigger guard was a little thicker than it should have been. filed it down a little at a time, and voila! mags of all types now slide in /out  with ease . thanks to all for the tips         SEMPER FI!
