DM7 questions and problem

Hey guys, recently picked up a DM7 at a deal I couldn't pass up two days ago.
This is my first DM but I've reading the stickies and manual.
Like all the markers I've acquired, first thing I have to do is a whole oring rebuild.

Replaced and maintained the orings in the drivetrain and hyper 2.
My problem is getting the LPR assembly out. After separating the frame and body, there are 3 holes under the LPR. One (towards rear of marker) is empty and the other two has set screws. I was able to take out the screw that is towards the front of the marker easily. The one in the middle, however, is loctited like crazy! I broke one Allen key already and stripped the screw with the second Allen key. Why is there so much loctite on this screw?
Will either buy a tap or take the safe route and send to dye.

My questions are about the 3 holes . What are they each for and why was one empty?
Also, the silver cylinder that sits above the HPR that has something to do with the on/off.
There is also a threaded hole through it. I would assume that it is to secure it, but I'm not sure. Is a screw supposed to be there as well?

Other than that, the DM is in fantastic shape. Barely been used but hasn't been maintained
in a loooooong time. Aired it before the rebuild and had no leaks.
No leaks after I replaced the orings that I could but I just want to replace the orings in the LPR body as well.

Thanks!

dont mess with the one that was loctited.
the one that is empty is where your grip frame screw goes.
once you remove the other set screw, you can pull the lpr assemply out the rear of the marker.

i wouldnt mess with the lpr orings if they arent leaking. you can nic those orings removing and re-inserting the assembly.

The loctited set screws on the body are air channel plugs, you should leave them alone.

And I think the threaded hole on the on/off body is just there for removal, you can stick a long screw/cocking rod in to pull it out of the marker.

trigger frame screw. Doh!

Thanks for the replies! Was puzzled on why there would be 2set screws for the LPR.
Didn't want to start pulling on the LPR before I knew what that middle screw was for.
Now off to hardware store to get a longer 10/32 screw to pull the LPR out

Thanks!

PS. I thought about leaving the LPR alone but I don't know how the previous owner took care of it, if at all. Just want to make sure that at least for the next 5-10 cases their should be no issues.

Ok, stoppped by the hardware store and bought a 10/32 screw.
Got home and took out the set screw.
I'm really pulling hard and the LPR still won't budge. I've tried a few times but just want to make sure I don't damage anything.

Here is the pic of the bottom of the frame.


So going from left to right:
LPR set screw / air passage (loctited) / not sure what that is / frame set screw

So should I just keep trying to pull the LPR body out?

if the lpr is not leaking like stated above just leave it alone. no reason to take it out once you set lpr you should not have to mess with it again unless weather changes. like here in washington. but dont have to change it much.
