Yea I noticed that when mine came in. I used my dremel to shave those down. Another thing is that even when shaving those down it still doesn't sit flush with the lower receiver because of the plate that is holding the trigger assembly there. At least thats what I'm guessing the plate is for. Since the bolt that comes with the grip wouldn't work I went for as simple a fix as possible. I didn't feel like going all over town trying to find a bolt to work so i drilled a hole in the bottom of the grip and used the original bolt. It might not be the prettiest because the grip just isn't thick enough to counter sink the bolt so it fits flush. I was also worried about it having some play because the bottom of the grip is removable. Suprisingly it is extremely sturdy and I have had zero problems so far. If I need to I will go find a shorter bolt or bond the removable bottom piece to the actual grip. All in all this grip is a major upgrade in my opinion. It is simply much more ergonomical for me. I also drilled two holes in the front handguard and mountd a polymer magpul rail so that I can use a foregrip.
