If the screws go all the way thru, maybe use smaller bit on opposite side into the screw may back them out.
Could have been worse.
Did you put blue locktite on them?
Drill from bottom MIGHT work, if you have a way yo hold securely and a drill press. Otherwise, bit will slip off screw and go through the softer aluminum of the rings.
A small EZ-Out should do it.
I would just buy new rings.
My first thought is reverse twist drill bits.
EZ-outs are never EZ.
Easy to use with cordless drill at slow speed; mount the object of interest firmly in a vise, blue tape off the fastener and away you go. You can spend a lot more on specialty micro drill
bits then use extractors, but no need to. Remember set your drill to REVERSE for both drill / extraction with the double ended bits.
If you broke the screws off. . . they should be loose now that they have no heads, right?
Without a picture, you're the only one who knows what's going on.
All you have to do is post a picture and it would prevent all this confusion.
I think I know what you are talking about. You effectively plugged the mounting holes in the rifle, right? So there are tiny little plugs that need to be removed which I have no idea how to do without buggering the rifle.
Let he who has not torn the head from the screw body, throw the first easy out!
Why? Copy and paste the specific posts you want to remember into a power point slide or word .doc and save. Be sure to copy the url, then you can access the whole thread
Just build the bead up backwards, until you can get ahold of it with something.
