A good pro can fill and recoat.. sometimes it takes a welder... grinding.. polishing... then a duracoat. If you want it to last dont go cheap...
I've seen the fill done for $25-$75 and a duracoat isnt very expensive.
I didnt wanna say... but I've seen stripped slides get filled with automotive bondo... smoothed and duracoated... Thats the $25 fill... all the rest like the duracoat is more.
I haven't heard of anyone I know that had engraving bondo'd out... complain... looks great and still holding up... but I dunno if something impact where the bondo is... might crack or fall out.
