Inconsistent Failure to Feed

I bought a used Colt 1911 Level One, Series 70. Accurate enough, but is frustrating at the range. It came with two Colt seven-round mags and they both had inconsistent ftf, and often those were on the second to the last round.

Sometimes the whole mag will feed flawlessly. Then I'll load them up and there will be a hangup. Both mags. So I came home and compared them closely to Colt mags that I've never had trouble with. I looked at everything, lips, angles, etc. They look exactly alike.

I've never had a gun that didn't feed reliably. Any thoughts or suggestions? I've always heard 90% of feeding problems are with the mag.
