1903 03-A3 Magazine issue

I recently bought a 1903 03-A3 Remington made around 1944. When I try to load 5 rounds in it it has an issue. The follower gets stuck and it won't go down and accept the rounds. I can move the follower to the right and it will load. I looked inside the magazine and I see a little indent on the left side of the magazine that the follower hits. Any suggestions?

Are you sure you don't have the magazine cut off engaged? It' a lever on the left side near the rear of the bolt that swings up or down it says off and on. This was so you could have 5 rounds in the magazine and block them from feeding so you could single load and keep the magazine full for emergencies.
