Carl Quick's LiteWieght 2240

So for about the last 24 months, I've had her on a serious diet. Now I am happy to report that she lost nearly 13 ounces and is feeling so much better. And let me say one thing, when I pick her up with one hand now she is light as a feather. Well, almost a feather.

Things I have done so far:

OEM main tube was lightened by me.
Barrel is OEM and trimmed down by me.
Main tube plug is made of Delrin by me.
Gas cap is aluminum, comes from HPA and bored out by me.
Hammer is made from Delrin by me with a modified 1701P striker.
Valve is an aluminum Disco rear end with a brass Pro-Top by Anthony.
Trigger grip frame is aluminum by Bluefork Design and then hogged out by Gregg.
Front barrel band is aluminum, made by Anthony, drilled by Rich and milled by me.

Steel Breech Installation Problem

I just received my 1322, 1399 stock, and steel breech in the mail. Put the stock on right away and then started on the breech. I think the very tiny allen screw in the breech (the screw visible when the bolt is pulled back) may have been installed too tightly because when I tried to removed it using the provided allen keys, the head of the screw stripped. Very unhappy about this, is there anything I can do?

Is this something I'll need to contact Crosman about, send it back to them for a replacement gun? I was so looking forward to having some fun right away and it's disappointing that that's just not going to happen yet.
