No, get a better set of wrenches and try to use a pick or needle nose pliers to get the broken wrench bit out.

So you stripped out the allen wrench hole? At first I thought you stripped out the threads in the handle.

You should be able to get them out as stated above, or get a few sizes of star shaped bits (torque bits) you should find one that will work. Worst case, you may have to dremel a slot into the screw head so you can use a screw driver.

If you're having that much of a problem either take it to a machine shop and have them do it or send it to a tech.

You will get it out, just don't rush it or you might do irreparable damage to your frame.

Why not try a different set of keys, see if that helps. But you should not of had an issue like this. If you cant get them you may need to send into us. May I ask why you are tearing down a brand new marker?

My question is how did you manage to strip out the screws with the so called "****ty ***" allen keys MD provides? I have used them multiple times on not only my Clones but other guns without issue...

You dont need to remove the grips to change "the diff modes and ****". Just so you know

tournament lock is off from the factory. first thing you should do with any and every gun is religiously read the manual back to front. thats how you get familiar. i dont blame you for taking a gun apart brand new, i do it all the time myself so dont feel bad. dont use the ball end to break something loose you will strip it, thats probably what happened.

no you're not screwed either. its a simple fix. IF you are skilled and confident you can slightly tap the NON ball end of the CORRECTLY sized allen into the area using a small hammer until it stops. then twist off. if it keeps stripping you can go to the next size up. again if you are confident and skilled. for your case id recommend sending it back in or bring to a machine shop
