They are air passage screws. Basically when they milled the air passages for the lp in the body. those screws just close up the holes, they should be sealed up with red lock tight. Not sure the exact size but its prob something standard.

Sometimes it'll sound like its leaking out of there when its really the rear pin oring leaking. Check this first... Double triple check this first. I Lube the snot out off that oring as well as the threads back there

those are usually red locktighted new out of the box since there is really no need to get in there... normally. Heat is sometimes needed to break the red locktight. When you reinstall it its your call, red/blue, both will work, I'd use red if you have it.
how are you planning on getting the stripped one out?

I have a special tool for removing stripped screw's Hopefully i have one small enough though... I have blue locktite.. I know its the screw because i tried my spare back caps new orings on both changed the orings even and then even tried my snatchpin.. Then gun was sitting for years this is the first time its been aired up in ages.. and i just hear/feel the small leak.. it isn't to bad of a leak but anoying none the less... I don't wanna remove the old screw until i can find one that will go in its place as its not my gun.. But i have had the owners approval to remove and replace the screw with locktite.. I have a friend that used to work in the factory and he said they used to just locktite those.. so i dunno just dumb random luck i got a leak there i guess..

I need the screw size or replacement size i can use.. -_-
