Velocity Screw Problem

Hi a few days ago I was chronographing my Tippman 98 Custom Pro and the velocity screw wouldn't tighten anymore. I found that the inside of were the screw goes in is stripped.

Has anyone found this problem and does anyone have any advise?

wow, ive never heard of that happening... :s im assuming that youd probably have to buy a new powertube, and if you do that, you might as well upgrade to the Dead on aluminum powertube instead of that crappy plastic one...

The same argument you make could apply to cars, paintball guns, prostitutes, and firearms.

I have an extra c-pro power tube if you'd like to purchase it. Aftermarket bolts and power tubes are a waste of money.

Call tippmann and explain what happened- Your velocity screw and power tube threads are stripped.

They're pretty good about sending out replacement parts.
