Any guns mounted on the shoulders will have the bottom of the weapon oriented upwards away from the body. I personally think this looks ok, and more importantly means any weapon will fit anywhere, as long as you keep the magnet's poles oriented properly.

Making them flush is the easiest way. Making a male-female hardpoint is very stable, but I'd say it's probably overkill.
Some people go crazy and add a pin though to stop the weapon from rotating, which is clever.
