I stripped out the front screw on the trigger assembly, the hole in the airtube looks like its messed up too. What can I do besides getting a whole new tube? Any advice or ideas?

Tap the hole slightly larger for a new screw
Do you have a thread measurement gauge?

The threads are 8-32, you may be able to run a 10-32 tap into the hole in the tube, then drill out the hole in the trigger frame to 3/16" for a 10-32 screw.... I would suggest removing the valve first, so that you can deburr the hole inside, otherwise when it comes time to remove the valve, it may not come out, as it has to pass over that hole....

Fixed one like that for a fellow not long ago. Stock lug was stripped out too. Still a pretty easy fix if you've the tools.

Drilled/tapped the tube 10-32 and drilled/tapped the lug and fit it with a 10-32 screw. Essentially the same as Lloyd Sikes did..

A slightly better option would be to make a half moon washer to fit inside the tube and have it threaded...and to make the stock lug from something sturdier than wet tissue.

Thanks everyone. I'll try to drill it out and tap it to 10-32.

Thanks again for the suggestions and the link. Here's a couple pics of the finished piece.
