Default Khyber Pass not taking magazines

I picked up your Khyber Pass model from my FFL today. Got it home and tried to insert the magazine that it shipped with to find that it would not seat completely in the rifle. I believe the magazine to be a 30 round metal Zastava bolt hold open. I also ordered 10 more of these magazines at the same time as the rifle from Lee Armory. Are there any known issues with this magazine fitting? I will not have access to my pmag AK moe's until tomorrow to try other magazines. It appears that the back of the metal mag is striking the bottom of the center support rivet.

After some file work I was able to get one of the magazines to fit. I will check other magazine types when I get access to them Monday and get to the range. I can't determine whether it's a build issue with the center rivet or magazine issue yet. I'm not real enthusiastic about having to modify 20 Zastava mags to fit this rifle since they work just fine as is in my Vepr.

Thumbs up Just a Zastava Mag problem

I tried my pmags this morning and they fit perfectly. The MOE magazine fits in the Khyber Pass with a satisfying click while the Gen3 metal pmag fits in snug with no click. I am a happy camper. Lee Armory you might take note that the magazine you are shipping with this rifle is not compatible. Or at least the one I got is not fitting without some modification. I will be taking it to the range tomorrow.

I contacted customer service today by chat on the website and they are sending out a replacement magazine. Very easy to deal with.
