The 80mm Carriage Bolt, part # 915-068-054 is actually the correct part, and is designed to have a round head.

You may be missing part # 853-0333-02 , a washer plate that allows for the 80mm carriage bolt to sit in the channel underneath the plate. This will give it the additional height from the larger carriage bolt the ability to tighten down the mounting brackets.

I've highlighted the carriage bolt, marked at GG, and the washer plate, marked as S, on the parts diagram from the instructions for the newer version of the Sidearm. This should line up with the picture of the track that you included.
