    OK, let me start this off by stating...I'm an idiot. I messed up the grip screws on my Sig. They are stripped and I cant get them out. Any suggestions before I send it to a smith for help.

    How bad? Will an EZ Out work?

    Do they make them small enough to work on grip screws? Ive only seen them for bigger stuff.

    Drill the heads off
    Remove with vice grips

    Do not replace with Allen head screws

    Oh yeah, they make small ones for sure! Just the other day I saw a post that had a pic of a frame with an EZ Out laying on it. It had a Grip Screw Bushing on it. Can't remember which thread though...

    I have removed screws using a punch with a very sharp point. I hammer the punch into the edge of the screw then lean the punch so when I am tapping it with a hammer I am hammering the punch in a counter clockwise direction.
