I did figure out the problem (i think) It looks like the follower, made of a nylon material, binds against the metal on the receiver wall, and does not quite go out enough to engage the hold wall.
I can wiggle the magazine left and right and it will pop up, but does anyone know if I can just get a replacement follower? Should I just buy an AK mag and take it apart for one?

Also, i'm just going to buy the circle 31 clips on Ebay, they had a good deal, and I try to keep with original equipment when I can.
