Help finding an old part

Hello everyone!

Long time paintball player. First time poster on this site. So I apologize if this post is in the wrong place.

I come to you with a problem. A couple days a go I picked up a marker from a guy. Used, I knew it wouldn't be perfect, and I wanted a pet project.
I tested it out. The FPS is terrible. I check for the velocity screw, none to be found.

After a google search, I found out the marker name is TARGA. And is Made by, Rare.

My problem is I cannot find a replacement screw.

If anyone can help or give some insight I would be appreciative! And I'll also post results of project.

Here are pictures of the marker. Along with a picture of the missing velocity screw.

First, that's a nifty custom job. Nice.

Second, the Targa is actually another name for the Kingman Spyder Compact. "Rare" is not a manufacturer, it's an adjective. As in fewer guns were sold with the Targa name compared to the Spyder name.

Not sure why they sold them under both names for a while, might have been a distributer things.

Anyways, you're looking for Part #29, velocity adjustment screw...

Bad news is that it's long out of production, and was a very commonly lost part, so it may be hard to find an exact match. Good news is that it's basically a metric allen head cap screw with an o-ring groove on it. The o-ring is just to keep it from vibrating loose, there are other ways to do that.

I think it's a M5 size screw, 16mm long (gun was made in Taiwan, so metric threads all around). Take that bottom plug with you to the hardware store and see what size screws fit.
