    Yes...it is. One thing about these "New" mags that some won't get is they may not be as new. We used to repark mags that came to hand or bead blast and blue, I forget... Then they sold in "As new condition" and you couldn't tell.

    A light press in a vice might just add that smidgen of length. Use might have widened the magazine just that much to make it loose.
