I personally don't like to use any lube on mags, other than maybe a drilube. Lube will only attract dirt and dust.

Its possible that that cosmoline has hardened inside which is causing the hangup. Anyone that has ever cleaned a mosin knows the stuff can turn into cement. If you think this may be the issue, you may just want to boil the mag housing for 10 - 15 min.

Only other thing I can think of is the springs are in backwards.
