I think I get it now as well. The mounting holes for the add-on rail don't line up w/ the hand guard?

Is your rifle a Bushmaster Car15? If so you'll have to do some trimming on the OE hand guard to get the rail section to fit.

On a carbine length rail it might be easier to use a thumb over style grip. Thats where you wrap your hand around the hand guard placing your thumb on the top portion of the hand guard. Your thumb should point toward your front sight or simply wrap around the hand guard.

If the problem your having with the amazon parts is the screw don't line up with the holes in the handguards, you have the wrong part. The holes in the handguards are spaced different depending on the length. I did the same thing with some from Cabela's and had to get the other size.
