LE6920 rail alignment

My new Colt LE6920 SOII has misaligned Daniel Defense quad rails and I'm wondering if this will affect scope accuracy. If so, is this something I can fix myself? Attached are pics from the top receiver end and bottom under the front sight. I couldn't get good pictures from the muzzle end where the rails gap from the barrel about 1/8" more on one side than the other.

Thanks all for continuing to help us AR noobs.

Andy,

1. You can just adjust the rails by loosening the screws, then play with the nut a little, and retighten the screws.

2. Why would it effect your optic? The optic should be mounted on the flat top of the receiver.

Got it, alignment won't affect a main optic. Any other reason I should bother with aligning or fixing the front gap difference?

It would annoy me---I'd fix it just to keep myself from going insane
