There is a metal "gas expansion" tube in all the gas magazines I've seen.  Part #206 or #226 in this magazine.

This is screwed to the baseplate and open on top in normal shooting position but pointing down when the magazine is inverted for filling.  Recall that the "gas" is really a liquid under pressure so this tube keeps an air pocket in the magazine when filling. Without the air pocket the liquid won't convert to a gas.  The tube can come loose (and has in a couple of my guns).  Requires removal of the base plate and re-screwing the tube into the base.  Knock out the two pins holding the baseplate to remove.  Note the follower spring will try to escape, etc.

Lock back on empty magazine is a follower function.  Compare your magazines for empty follower height and freedom of movement.  There is only a tiny bit of the follower that trips the slide lock in the MP7A1 so it's pretty critical it comes all the way up.   Check the follower when you remove the base plate (above).  There may be a manufacturing burr or debris preventing it from that last millimeter of movement.

Also on the follower, make sure it is not deformed. The most common deformity is the metal deforming near the top of the follower lock. If this is warped due to the follower slamming into the top of the magazine then it will no longer travel all the way up when in the gun to trip the bolt stop.
