Recessed Receptacle Not Fitting in Carlon 1-Gang Deep Box

I purchased a Legrand recessed receptacle, and it will not fit in a Carlon 1-gang deep box. There are these ridges on the inside top and bottom, and the receptacle is hitting them. I installed one last year (Leviton brand receptacle, I think), and I had no issues. Iím pretty sure I used the same exact box. Is it the brand of receptacle that Iím using, or is the box the issue?

Those receptacles don't fit in most old work boxes.
I believe you need to use the deep gray Legrand boxes.... part # 382724
