Hey guys need a little help, I'm a little confused and wondering if someone can clear this up for me....
I've been having issues with jams in the feed ramp/hopup area, I did do the O-ring behind the hop-up Mod and that cleared up about 96% of the jams but I still get them once and while.

So I decided to purchase some feed lips for my mags because they looked different from what I've seen on the web.....

Ok so, if your looking at the front of your mag where the BB leaves the feed lip to be chambered, all of my feed lips have a curved cut out allowing the bb to easily fall out of the mag but on all the websites that I look at including the one that ordered from don't have this curved cut out instead the lips are straight which create a little bit of restriction...O and yes the ones that I ordered came with the curved cut out....

Any help with this will be great thanks....

Since you have one USGI mag and one PMag shown in the picture it's a little hard to tell. I have 4 PMags and they all look that way, with the straight edges that is, and my jamming issues have pretty much ceased entirely though I did do a lot of internal work along the way.

A random check of the feed area of my LM4 magazines a minute ago was revealing!

The MagPuls are all straight sided.

Of the 4 STANG mags I checked 2 are straight sided; 2 have round openings.  No wear is apparent on the rounded vesions.  All were purchased in the past year.  All function as near perfectly as airsoft mags can be expected to function.

I'm going to mark the round opening versions and see if any feeding stoppages develop, but I've been using all of them interchangeably without problems and would not have noticed the difference if this note had not been posted.
