You have to get the feel for it. It's harder to put the AK mags in correctly than in an AK. I always put it in with the front edge of the mag pointed vertical. I push upward then slide forward and do the normal rocking into place. You also have to make sure the catch on the mag is centered correctly. I usually have to look at it when I'm doing it. Also, if you replaced the original stock with a thumbhole, that may be part of it. The mag well is integrated into the stock. One thing I don't like about it.
Have you tried working the action in slow motion? That might tell whether it's the action spring or the direction of feed. If you want, you could smooth out the feed ramp as long as the chamber is untouched.
