Stripped hex bolt

So im doing the all in one trigger kit and the first bolt i try to take off strips,not the grip pin but the hex bolt itself,anyone know if a extractor is made for hex bolts this small or am i gonna have to wing it and cut a slot with my dremel and just use a screwdriver to remove it

Before cutting or extracting, I generally try jamming a Torx bit or a slightly oversized ?metric? hex bit or even an appropriately sized flat or square bit to see if that helps get enough bite to unscrew.

The kel tec fasteners are aluminum - a little force can make an oversized bit fit.

My thoughts exactly. Maybe tapping the oversized tool in place will break the fastener free.
