Help: screw stripped

i recently acquired a used savage model 200 for a great deal. Looked over bore when buying it. everything was clean. Had no scope or rail for the scope. when hope ordered rail and nikon 3-9x40mm for it. got the rail and scope. tried to put on rail and on of the screw holes was stripped. how do i go about this. Not new to gunsmithing but never seen this. can you lead me in the right way. thanks Anthony

Normally all you have to do is re-tap the hole with the next size tap (6/32 to 8/32).

If it is the front thread on top of the barrel tenon you should take it to a smith and have
the barrel removed to correctly tap the hole. (A bottom tap will work but the threads will
not go all the way through and there is a risk of damaging the tenon threads.

If you can bolt the base down it will work as a guide for the larger drill size for the tap.

you will have to inlarge the shoulder size in the base for the larger screw also. (Be carefull
not to drill all the way through with this drill bit.
