98 Custom Valve Screw Threads Stripped...

Well... One of the screw holes that attaches the power tube to the right of the gun is striped. It releases some gas during firing. Are there any valves I can buy to replace it? Do I need to replace the power tube, valve, or both? Thanks.

Edit, found a new valve body from TippmannParts.com. Is this a reliable store? Have you ever bought something from them?

I think you have bigger problems than the threads being stripped. Those screws don't plug holes that air can get out of, they just attach it to the power tube. If CO2 truly does escape out the hole, take your valve out of the power tube and have a good look at both the valve and power tube as there might be a crack/hole. If there is, replace the faulty one. If there isn't you can try seeing if your hose is leaking (although that would be a constant leak, not just during firing). Air leaking out the screw hole is kinda strange though. Your best be would be to replace the valve.

For that, you have two options. First, you can call Tippmann and ask for a free one (tell them the hose threads got stripped or the o-ring broke) and they will ship one out (I got mine in about a week). Second option is the aforementioned website. They are very reliable and I just ordered some spare parts last week myself.

Do yourself a favor and get another screw as well.
