Magazine Mystery

My Hi Power came with a brand-new Mec Gar 13 rounder.  A friend gave me an old parkerized 13 rounder he had laying around.

The old magazine would often not accept more than 12 rounds and would not feed reliably.

Trying to troubleshoot the problem, I took the spring and follower from the Mec Gar and put it in the old magazine.  Problem solved!

On a lark, I put the old spring and follower into the Mec Gar body...  Works just fine.

All in all I am happy that I went from 1.5 magazines to two.  I wonder what critical dimension or tolerance stack-up caused the problem with the old mag.
