Well I tried taking out on/off to lube it up because it was leaking and I thought that I had the correct size allen wrench because it fit, but I was mistaken. As I turned the wrench, it started to tear up the soft aluminum ASA screw (part #6 in the manual).

I'm planning on taking it to my proshop because they said I have a lifetime warranty, but if something goes wrong and they can't take it out, what can I do? ;)

I( saw an info mercial for a extactor drill bit that is supposed to be able to get out stripped screws. I dont know if it works but you drill out a hole in the screw then the other head gets it out. And its only a couple bucks

You know, I heard the Craftsman brand screw extractor kit works really well.

Ya but the Extractor Things Dig in DEEP they might get to the marker shell and rip it up.

What you COULD do is call the manufacture Sometimes they will tell you to send it in and attempt to get it out But don't quote me on that...
Meh i got my sig removed...Why? I dunno The government just does not like me i guess.

Get an allen key a size to big...hammer it in...you should be able to pull it out.

But replace it after that dont keep usinng it, becuase youll never get out again.

Peace,

Depending on where the screw is located you can cut a groove for a flat head screw driver using a rotarty tool.

Na, it's an internal screw.

I'll bring it to my proshop and see what they can do. Thanks though for all the replies, on and btw, I didn't know they had drill bits to extract screws. :D
