Question About Questionable Magazine

After shooting my micro 380 today at the range I gave it a good cleaning when I got home. I decided to take all my magazines apart to clean them too since I didn't do it last time I shot it, and they needed it. My question is the follower on one mag doesn't slide freely up and down the magazine like the others do, it sticks a little at both ends but is free in the middle section. Its clean and shiny inside just doesn't move freely like the others. I think its one of the newer ones I bought on sale a few months ago but I have used it before not today though.

Don't know if I should just chuck it in the can or try replacing the follower. Oh, its a Kimber 6 round mag.

If it's causing malfunctions mark it for range use only. If not I wouldn't worry about it and use it.

Don't toss it, first mark it in some way so it doesn't get mixed back in with your good mags. Then break it down and see if you can see where the feeder is rubbing on the mag. Using a pair of needle nose pliers you can make small adjustments to the feeder, it sometimes takes a bit of playing but I haven't found one yet that I couldn't get working right. Even after I get them working properly I still restrict them to range use only.
