I think if you take the stud out of the shorty. it will screw on to your mount,1/4-20 thread both ways, just female instead of male, stud has locktite on it so protect shorty with tape or similar, use release agent on stud if poss.
(you may also need to shorten the stud on your mount to prevent bottoming use removed stud as a guide) you can also swap mount to a later model (I've seen $22. quoted for that part)
