I need some suggestions/advice. I picked up an old remington BDL 30-06 today for the action. The Bore looked good and appears little used but the rifles exterior looked like it had been neglected pretty badly. Since the Action itself looked good and the price was right I made the deal and took it home to clean it up. Everything was good until I wanted to remove the one piece scope mount. The leupold torx head screws appear to be partially stripped. On the head...notthe threads. I guess I can leave them as is and hope the Smith can remove them but if anyone else has dealt with this and has a methodology that may work, I would appreciate advice. I may determine to give it a shot but I would not wish to make the Smiths job any harder than it appears it will be. Will a Smith be able to get the dang things out??
