    Grind the ends off. Relative common or get shorter screws.

    Are the 4 screws the same length, or two shorter than other two?

    If you grind them down thread a nut that will fit em first, that way after the grind when you unthread the nut it'll act like a die, that way you don't screw up the threads going back in your rifle
