I posted this for you when you mentioned it in the CQB thread, but here it is again:

This little faux pax resulted in a quick hop to the hardware store for a longer screw, which I used to bring the internal drum back up into position where I could then use the provided -- and not to be removed -- set screws. Lesson learned and no harm done. Read the instructions first and don't assume!"
In other words, go to the hardware store, purchase a longer screw in the same size and pitch, then use it to raise the internal drum. Then install one of your factory IOR screws in the "other" hole. After it's snug, remove the longer screw and install the factory screw in that hole.
No real harm done
Doing this instead of working...
