I modified my MKII release so that mags could be inserted without prying it back and so mags would easily drop out when released:



I'm not telling you to do that, since you're trying to keep everything original. But I just want to show you that it's only the middle portion of your release that's snagging on the mag. You could very lightly flatten or round just that middle portion of your release and cold blue over the mod. It would be very hard to notice the mod if done carefully, and it would solve the problem without changing releases.

The nice thing about doing the fix at the release is any mag will then work, instead of only mags that you've modified.

Just another option to consider.
