UPDATE: I did call Nikon and explained the problem I was having and she said get her a receipt and she would forward it to the parts department.
These mounts came with a P-223 scope that I bought from a guy that sold his AR on another forum so a receipt was not available.
Broke out the files, a small rubber mallet and a spare picatinny rail. Did some filing and then tapping the mounts up and down the rail until they would slide. JUST hope that I did not screw-up the alinement.
