Has anyone had any experience filling holes created in a receiver after it has been drilled and tapped?

I have accomplished this several ways. They make a plug that you can screw into the holes. This leaves a little raised spot that is slotted. The other way is to lock-tite a flat head screw into the hole (you may have to chamfer the top of the hole if there is none. There will be less evidence that there is a plug there). Then cut it off and file the screw to match the surface area. Then cold blue the plug. Regards Bob

I have filled a number of holes in receivers that were drilled wrong. I chamfer the hole quite a bit, thread a screw into the hole leaving one eighth inch or the screw sticking up. Heat the remaining part of the screw bright red and peon it down tight and file down and polish.
