Mags won't drop - how to fix?

Four of my magazines will drop free when it hit the mag release. Unfortunately, two of them get stuck inside my stock and have to be pulled out.

What is the best way to fix the issue?

Ditto. While I will buy a gun that is easily obtained from my LGS at a reasonable price, I am not going to pay $100+ extra for a special order or something like a Mark IV Target.
