Aha! Makes sense, and personally, the way those Victor magazines (don't) grip the next round, I suspect they have no control - just toss it out there and hope to find the hole.

When I look at the magazine springs through the "notch", the outer coils closest to me are "horizontal". With the magazines from Roddy, they are at an angle. I suspect that is because the springs are 180 degrees "wrong" in one or the other.

Do we have an article here on how to properly clean and re-assemble HS magazines? Doing an online search was a waste. Of my three non-factory magazines, two have the spring one way, and one has the spring rotated 180 degrees. I guess I need to take a photo.
