I can't get a loaded magazine in the receiver if the bolt is not held open, is that normal?

It is if your magazine doesn't have a little wiggle room after the 10th round.
Stick 9 rounds in your mag and you'll find it works just fine. Some mags that have been Kalifornia Nuetered aren't done with enough extra space out of paranoia.. because if a LEO can fit an 11th bullet in that mag, you're in trouble.

Now, if you try it with 9 rounds or less, and it STILL doesn't work, then you've got a different problem... but I'm sure you're just looking at a stiff mag.

Fortunately, the solution is easy... get different mags. Just double check that you can't get that 11th round in when you take it to the range. ;)

That's what I figured, but then I was thinking that if it was the full 30 wouldn't it have the same problem. I have a hard time fitting 10 rounds in it.
