I have been having issues from the start. I use .25g bbs by golden ball. I always have to keep pushing up on the feeder to push the bbs to the top... And now bbs get stuck right next to each other in the mag and its a pain to get them unstuck. Anyone else having these type of problems? Any solutions because I'm pretty perturbed about it. Thanks!

Hi Kingdd101 - Welcome to the KWA Forums.  Sorry to hear yo are having issues with your mag.  I have a couple of questions:
  • When did you buy the gun? If it is within 45 days it is under warranty.  The KWA standard warranty applies to magazines too!
  • Can you post a picture of the BB channel and follower?
Let's start there.

Lets see if this link works

If you can view it, I was able to empty my other mags and forgot to do this one(thank goodness now) and I am 100% positive when I use them the follower is not in the locked position, also. When I shoot 70% of the time I have to keep pushing up the follower with my finger.

I believe the brand of the Bbs are at fault.

I would certainly try a different brand.  Also, I would pay particular care when loading the mags to avoid gaps which may be causing the BB's to go out of alignment.

I use goldenball and elite force bbs... I don't think that's the problem. This is probably a stupid question to ask but would a little dirt cause it to do so?

There should be NO dirt in or on your mags...clean it...then try it again

Dirt can definitely cause the BBs to not be pushed up. If the BB follower spring has dirt within it, it will also need to be cleaned. Quickest way to remove dirt is with an air duster, the best way to remove dirt is running Q-tips through the BB track.

Just run a couple of Q-tips though the bb's tracks in the mag to see if that helps.  Also do not use any type of lube since it can attract more dirt and also contaminate your bb's which can cause accuracy and range issues.
