mine did the same thing, all you can do is drill it out, then you can usually get to the leftover piece with a small screwdriver, or it stays attached to the bit. The threaded metal is a lot harder than the bolt, so you shouldnt have to re tap if you use a small enough bit. drill slow and straight, The threads are not deep, like 1/4 to 1/2 an inch, good luck!


Where did my sig go? help me find it..........
