I've got a new mini 14 with the standard 5 rd mag with a plastic fancy baseplate, which locks in easily. I also bought a 10rd factory mag which has an older style metal baseplate and wont lock in for the life of me. I think perhaps it's faulty? Here's a pic of the back of the magazine. Is it missing a tab?
