    WD-40 or liquid wrench, and any kind of impact driving screwdriver. you can try clamping it down to a heavy table and tapping on the back of a regu;ar screwdriver with a wooden mallet while putting pressure and twist on the screw, or you can get an impact type screwdriver from harbour freight, but the bit size may not fit a small screw.

    I would try heat before I used any "impact" type persuasion. Or Kroil if you can find it.

    Like a heat gun because you don't really want to take the torch to it, lol. never tried touching a soldering iron on a screw to heat it up, but that would probably work too, but might make it a bit unsightly. Heat gun is usually how it's done.

    I hesitate to tell you to use a torch, because I don't know what that would do to the blueing. I reconditioned a Mosin, wood and metal, the blueing is very easy to get looking good around the trigger area because of the low quality of machining (not very smooth so it reflects light poorly). I was happy with the results I got when reblueing areas of my Mosin, and I am pretty finicky about how my guns look.

    Only you know how bad you want to get that screw out, and how far you are willing to go to do it. A heat gun gets pretty darn hot too, but just about everybody has a propane torch in the garage. Not so, for the heat gun.
