I was trying to fix one of my leaky mags but I couldn't get the valve out because it is stripped. Any suggestions?

Do you have the proper valve key/tool?

Yes, but the valve is stripped and if I use the tool it just slips out of place. It's like trying to remove a stripped screw.

mine is like that too. Once I got it out I tried to used a file (failed) and then a drill to help carve out the area in the notch which had become worn. i am curious what others have done as well. The brass seems to be a bit unforgiving if you slip with the tool a couple of times and it only gets worse

The screw slot is stripped?  Or the threads holding the valve in the body?  I was assuming the latter.

I would suggest creating new slots with a small dremel bit of some kind. Maybe an engraving bit?
