you stripped every screw on the A-5?

Use a screw-out. Goto Lowe's.

Or use a dremel and cut slots in all of them, and take them out with a flat screwdriver.

If you stripped the screw heads and can't get them out of the marker, here's what I'd try.

You'll need one (maybe two) allen wrenches that you'll never be able to use again.
-some JB weld, or some other equally strong epoxy
-a dremmel tool

Put just a tiny bit of the epoxy into the damaged screw head, then set the end of the allen wrench in it. Let the epoxy harden to the screw head and the allen wrench and you should be able to remove the screw when everything dries. Dremmel off the end of the allen wrench with the screw stuck to it, and repeat on the others in the marker. The allen wrench will keep getting shorter, which is why I recommend getting two of them.

And you're gonna need another set of screws.

....I've never tried this method, but in theory it should work.

OR you could go to Lowes/Home Depot and get an Easy Out drill bit set. it drills a small hole in the screw and allow you to get a bite on it and back it out.  They work great on flat, phillips and hex head screws.
