Mike:  Hi guys, Can you give me an idea how much force should be needed to seat a fully loaded magazine?  I built an AR with a SSA lower and PSA upper and 30 round PMAGs. Empty, the mags seat very easily. Fully loaded, I usually have to hit the bottom of the mag quite hard to get it to latch. I haven't shot an AR before, so all I have to compare to are pistols.

Thanks for the help.
