Bad magazine, or bad magazine catch assembly.

Check to be sure you actually have a correct magazine. There are similar magazines that appear to fit, but don't.

Check the magazine body to insure it's not bent, bulged, or has deformed feed lips that are interfering with it seating fully.

Check the magazine catch at the lower rear butt to insure it's got plenty of spring pressure, and the catch itself isn't broken or worn.

The catch should snap over the floor plate of the magazine and retain it.

Well, problem solved. I took it back to the shop. It seems he bought two 1903's Saturday and for some reason switched magazines. Everything fits perfectly now.
THanks much for the input. Sorry for the false alarm
