Bad BX 25 Magazine

I have a newer BX 25 that I have used for about 4 uses.
The shells would not feed today and are aiming down instead of up so they can feed.
I pried the first two out and they all are aimed down...

What is the fix for this? Should I open it up? Should I send it to Ruger?

Somewhere on the forum is a guide to fixing similar issues by adding a bushing to the follower part (they made the bushing from a 22 shell). I've tried it on my BX25 and it seemed to help, though I haven't used it much since then.

I was having trouble with one of my BX 25. I was shooting our in the desert. So i took it apart, cleaned it, and it was good to go.

The mag that jammed up was fairly new..not dirty.
I decided to open it up and the spring and follower where kind of sideways midway down the mag. I put spring back in at the top and ran a full mag through and it worked...this time.
