Yep, that's a common problem with one brand of rails.

What I do is ignore the hole in the rail and align them where they should be based on the trunnion lugs and upper rails. After they are welded in I use a file or dremel to match the hole in the receiver. Basically cutting away half a hole of material.

I have never had one line up properly. I hold the rails in the correct position, then mark the overlapping material through the rivet and axis pin hole. I then slot the rail before welding to eliminate the change of messing up the receiver hole.
