    So I just received my Echo 1 SCAR in the mail today, and the Allen screw won't come out of the orange tip.

    Any ideas on how to get it out?

    I had the same issue with my old E1 SCAR (dubbed Lady MacBeth due to her tendency to stab me in the back). At a guess, id say your set screw is stripped out, and the only way to get it off is very destructively. Also bear in mind that the orange tip is more than likely glued to the threads. On a side note, I highly recommend changing out the spring ASAP. My stock spring killed two gearbox shells.

    Ok. What size spring should I buy?

    That depends on field limits and what you want it to do.

    I want to get the maximum amount of fps out of the gun. Where I play there are no limits on the guns.
