The dinensions are quite similar. The HSc mag has a difference cut in the top for the magazine safety.

Some for illustration:
HSc on the left, M1914 on the right.

The 1914 magazine is a bit knackered, but you get the idea of the form and depth of the cutout at the top of the spine.

It should, really. Sometimes the guns get put back together in the wrong order. A common mishap is the wrong installation of the flat leaf spring that runs along the spine. It serves as both the magazine catch and the magazine safety spring.

Also, when the grip screws are screwed in too tight, they can block the magazine from going in all the way. You can actually see the wear pattern caused by the screw on my magazine.

This is reasonable. The tip of the leaf spring must fall between the 2 notches of the triangular part, the video.shows this correctly. The video makes removal and installation of parts a bit too easy, but the general idea is correct.

The magazine catch spring is poking out, it should be further up.

When installed incorrectly, or broken, it will jam the triangular shaped magazine/slide safety. And possibly prevent the magazine from going in.

Everything looks like it is ok.
I would try another, original, magazine to see if the fit is better.

Will measure one from top of the spine to the bottom.

Length from the bottom to the top the tube edge is 3.7"

A point to notice is that the magazine will slide in, meet some resistance, then needs to be 'clicked' in, so it locks under the catch.

One thing you can check. The magazine and follower have a slit on the back. This hooks into the magazine safety/holdopen. The triangular bit. It still looks like that part is not doing its job properly.

It's an interesting problem nonetheless, looking forward to hearing what caused it.

Interesting.

Can you take a photo of the top rear of both magazines, it looks like your original magazine must have an engagement issue.

I wonder if someone installed a HSc follower in your 1914 magazine, for example.

The only thing I see is that the slit cut in your original Magazine appears to be too long.
