Scope screws stripped

I bought the gun and the screws were already stripped. I tried to get the scope off and stripped them out more. Anyone know a way to get these things out?

They make some type of "screw removal" tool for this purpose..look around at HD or Lowes...if I valued the gun much I'd take it to a good smith before I "buggered" up the receiver getting em out
+1 on taking to a smith, if you bugger up the holes you can get them wallowed out and they wont be centered. I think last time i had one drilled out and rethreaded it was about 25 or $30 bucks.
