Previous owner screwed things too tight...

Hello all!

I recently purchased another Smith and Wesson 422 6" and as per my ritual I broke it completely down and cleaned it insided and out....or at least I would have if the screws weren't so tight.

Whoever took this gun apart last screwed the screws so tight that it ruined two bits off of my precision screwdriver set.

They also screwed the thread guard really tightly as well.

I have never run into this problem on a gun before. I know that for other really tight screws I just take a blow torch to em and out they come. I dont think that would be wise here.

Any tips for getting these screws out without destroying my finish or the gun in general for that matter?
