Mod 8 .30 Rem: Hard to insert rounds in magazine

I'm noticing that it is very difficult to insert rounds into my 1929 Mod 8 in .30 Rem, with the one spring magazine. None of my other Mod 8/81's are this difficult, and rounds easily pop into their magazines. Is it recommended to maybe slightly bend or file/polish the lip on the box mag or maybe try to bend the mag spring? Or, should I leave well enough alone?

See if the top of the magazine has been squished in any, otherwise I don't know. I don't think I'd mess with the side spring any.
