GSG 1911 issues and questions

Finally got a chance to take my brand new GSG 1911 out the other night and ran into quite some issues.
1. Almost every magazine, there would be 1 or 2 failure to feed rounds. The nose of the round will get stuck on the upper rim of chamber.

2. Sometimes, the next round in magazine is not picked up and chambered when it sits flat in the magazine instead of nose tilted upwards.

3. Extractor seems to be hitting the slide. If I were to let go of the slide slowly, I can feel the hipcup when extractor touches slide. Does anyone have experience the same?

4. After about 350 rounds, the slide is badly scratched. I'm not sure what's scratching it or how it's scratched, as I don't have a high speed cam. Does anyone experience the same? Or do you know what might be the reason? Please see red circled areas.

I was shooting walmart federal 550 bulk ammo and remington 550 golden bulk. Both would give me the same problem.

I contacted ATI and requested to send in my magazine and get a replacement one, they want me to send in the whole gun and said turn around time would be about 1-2 months for warranty repair. I opted for getting some replacement magazine follower to be sent to me and try them out first.

While I'm waiting for mag follower from ATI, I bought 2 factory mags online. The marking on them is differnt from the one that came with the gun. Please see pic attached. Does anyone know what it means? Gen1 and Gen2 mags?

I would really appreciate if you can share your input with me.
