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.

everything seems to fit only the catch just misses covering the heel by a 16th of an inch and no amount of pushing will get it any lower
thanks

I was told that .38 mag is at least 1/32-in wider than .32 mag.

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
