Call Tippmann. Just pray that the valve body isnt stripped, or youll need to drop $30 on a new valve. When you put new bolts in, use Loctite and DON NOT OVERTIGHTEN! Just snug them in.

That would be the easy way out. Sure it may get fixed, but youll be clueless if it breaks down again, and he will charge some money. The only thing you would need to hand to a qualified air-smith because of a potential danger hazard is your tank. As long as theres no air on the gun, you can do anything at all without getting hurt.

Loctite is a thread sealer and locker. It seals the threads, and keeps them tight. Look it up on google, you can find it at any hardware store.
