There may be a difference in the recoil buffer. Check on https://www.gunpartscorp.com/ to see if they can help. I hate to ask, but is it all nice and clean inside? Not too much grease pasted in there?

Depending on your exact model the buffer may be different.

Several things:

Low velocity ammo? Anything above 1070 fps (think CCI standard velocity) should work. Stuff like CCI quiet generally don't have enough umph to cycle normally

The new buffers that are black in color will work in the older rifles

Jamming with the mini mags - is it an extraction or ejection issue?
Also examine the tip of the magazine follower in the inner tube

He took it to a gunsmith and said it's the feed ramp,apparently it was (cleaned) with some heavy duty Emory cloth
