So are you saying you broke the bond loose and tightened it or you tried to tighten it? -

i made about 1 and 1/4 rotations before it would not turn any more the screw started to distort a little so i stoped trying

If you did all that, I'd call Kingman at 1-888-kingman and ask to talk to a tech about it and see what they say -

Keep a small allen wrench that fits something on your gun (that way it's twice as useful) in your pocket. If you need to re-cock & have lost your pin you can stick the short end in the bolt on cock it. Just a side note; I had this problem last spring (as did many others) and since I converted to LP and have a Bandit bolt, I've never lost my pin again.

The hole for the set screw is not a through tapped hole. The set screw can only go in as far as the hole has been tapped. So once you bottom the set screw out, it cannot go any further.
There have been several different creative things have been done to prevent the pin from coming out and getting lost. A little searching will provide lots of info.

Well you could just cock your gun, take it out and put it in your pocket until such a time that you need to recock.

Simple solution
