Times Microwave sells an LMR connector that fits correctly.  From the Texas Towers price list:

LMR-200, LMR-240, LMR-400
  PL-259ST, UHF Male, Silver Teflon   $2.49
	9913-NM, N Male Compression Type    $4.95

Using these connectors, I've never had any problems fitting the LMR-400 to the connector.
