First of all, Welcome to the forum. You won't find friendlier guys, who are more willing to help anywhere.
As for your problem, are you talking about the screw that holds the trigger frame to the body? If so I'd take it to your local paintball shop and see if they can help you. If not, call Kingman and see if they can help.

You can get a new screw. The screw size is metric, M5 x 12mm.

I wouldn't say that you are screwed. If you can't get it off call Kingman, I'm sure they will be able to help you. You might have to send it in to them but they should be able to fix it for you.

Nah, all you need to do is cut a slot across the top of the screw either with a dremmel or a hacksaw. (I'm assuming you mean you stripped the hex head part out.) Then use a flat head screwdriver to remove it.
I've done this multiple times - I actually HATE screws with hex holes in them anymore! As far as getting a new screw, go to Wal-mart or your local hardware store and find one. MUCH cheaper!

Nah, no need to close it, if your problems have been solve people will just stop responding to the thread.

just use a strong glue to glue a nut to the top of the screw, then you can use a nut driver to get the screw out. Or you could just use a drill and drill the screw out.
