I've been taking my hop up apart and putting it back together a lot to try various buckings, DIY mods, ect. During this, I stripped my little screw the screws into the hop up adjustment dial. I've tried a few methods but nothings worked. I checked the proshop and they don't carry the screws.
How do you I get the screw out?
Will other hopup sets have a screw that matches or is this a proprietary screw.

You can probably find one that will work at a hobby shop. To get it out I would use needle nose pliars  most likely. Or notch the head with a dremel so you can use a flat head screwdriver.

most likely you stripped the threads in the plastic hop up and not on the metal screw.  I'm guessing you probably need to replace the hop up unit.

I think what he's saying is he stripped the head, not the threads. If that's the case, do what Jesse suggested and make it a flathead.
