I did this as well. Shallow hole the size of the base so the detent, through hole the size of the tip of the detent, the use a small round file or small Dremel bit to make the through hole more of a short groove so that the finger of the detent can fall into it when the bolt closes.

I accidentially drilled the first shallow hole too deep, so the finger sticks too far into the breech. A few games and the detent tends to trim its self to the proper length.
