Art, if I read you right the holes don't go through and actually into the bore. I've done the following with several rifles after either drilling & tapping for scopes or if that was done at the factory and the owner just wants the sight screw holes filled in. Buy or make threaded plugs in mild steel about 1/16" longer than necessary. Screw in, pean them down then polish and blue as usual. Very rarely can you even tell they are there. Welding would probably work just fine as well. George
