Tripp Cobra mags, anyone else....

Have issues with these in their Guncrafter?
I have 3 No Name 5" guns that all lock back randomly on half full magazines using this brand. I have a whole box of these magazines I use with my Wilsons with no problems. I have both 7 and 8 round Tripp cobra mags, I've tried multiples of each type in my GIs. The symptom is the slide hangs up partially open with rounds still left in the magazine. It doesn't quite lock fully open, almost like it's hanging up on something. I've looked at the slide stop nub and I'm not seeing anything binding up there or looking like the top round is hitting it. My hunch is there's something slightly different with this brand of magazine's geometry that isn't playing nice but wanted to see if anyone else has seen this.

So the slide stop is not engaging? what is the top round doing? what is it touching? other than the slide stop, the only thing on a magazine that would effect the slide is the top round. Possibly partial feed?

Ill update my post as I just received my GI NN a few days ago. It is in .40S&W and after 1000 rounds using 6 Tripp research mags, not a single issue. All lock back and feed just fine.
