When you drill in the center of the head just enough for the head to pop off the rest of the screw is left sticking out of the part.  Once the pressure is removed and you separate the parts the stub of the screw can in many cases be turned out with a pair of pliers or a vise grip.  I have a very tiny vise grip just for this purpose.

Uberti and Pietta grip assembky screws are the same thread pitch.  Uberti's might have a very slightly smaller head.  Uberti's lock work screws I think are gen 1 thread pitch (24 tpi) while Pietta's I'm guessing are gen 2 (28 tpi).

Once the back strap and WOOD grip are off,  you can get a penetrating lubricant into the actual threads.  Let it sit a day.  Hit it again with a penetrating lubricant.  Grab the stud with Vice Grips and carefully turn it out.  If necessary, apply some heat to the bottom the Trigger Guard frame to expand it aver so slightly.

I found mine in the screw driver section after I was told they did not have them.

Because the grip screws "mushed" on me taking the grip frame off, and the bottom grip screw is stuck in and refuses to budge and the first attempt the screw deformed, essentially making it a one way screw. And yes I had a proper fit screwdriver. So far heat has done nothing.

I want to replace the 6 grip screws with something other than butter that will deform every time I remove or tighten them. These are as is from factory, I havent been able to remove that damned bottom one yet. It is going to take extra work as soon as the needed stuff comes it. I have a spare set of Pietta screws sitting here.

Invest in a small impact driver and a good set of gunsmithing bits like Brownells Magna-tip bits and don't hesitate to use the impact driver on any and every screw that even gives you the slightest resistance which will likely be every single screw on the first disassembly of a new gun. After the first time taking it apart everything should be fine from then on. I have no problem with even the soft Uberti screws as long as it doesn't get damaged on first disassembly. First thing I do is take apart a new gun completely before I even work the action.

I've got a few different impact drivers and by far the best one I've used is the one from Garrett Wade but I see they are not available now which is a bummer because I was wanting to get the set since I only have the small one. The small one is the only one you need for gun stuff you can buy the small one separate or at least you could.
