Magazine Doesn't Work

A friend of mine just found and bought me a 10 round magazine for the 802 Plinkster. I loaded it and put it in the rifle only to find that it doesn't seem to fit. My brother suggested bringing my problem up to a gun smith. I've not yet done that and found this forum and thought I would ask you folks for any advice you have as the rest of the internet does not seem to have this problem. Thank you.

Welcome aboard @Travis188 .

Will the mag not insert into the rifle? I have read that some new mags can be a tight fit. Wish I could help more, but I don't have any personal experience with this particular rifle...

Correct, it doesn't seem to fit. I can get it in far enough that it doesn't fall out but then it's hard even to pull out.

I'm tagging member @VitSports6 to this reply.

Not sure when he may pop in, but I know he has one of these rifles and may be able to offer some first-hand feedback...

My pleasure.

Feel free to jump in and join the conversation elsewhere on the forum. The 802 section can be a bit slow, but we're a lively bunch overall...

Thanks for tagging me.
Can you take a pic of the magazine?
I'm not sure when or if they ever changed the magazine, however I seem to recall a different type, newer model or something, is the rifle new or used?
I did a quick GIS, some of the magazines I see have a red follower that appears to stick up above the top, mine has a green follower and is flush at the top, but otherwise looks identical.
