Valken Proton adjusting screw/regulator stem seal.

I recently picked up a Valken Proton from a member on here, and so far I like it, but after literally the second shot I took with it, the regulator stem seal started leaking. I didn't know it was the stem seal at first, so I took apart the regulator to inspect/clean/lube it. I was able to confirm it is the stem seal by sticking a hex key in the hole while aired up and noting the sound change and pressure on hex key (it will try to push it out).

I got the old seal out, which wasn't easy. Apparently it is slightly crimped into place, which makes it even harder to try to reinstall.

At this point I've given up and am hoping to buy another "Adjusting Screw" (12c) with "Regulator Stem Seal" (12d) already installed, but I can't seem to find it for sale anywhere. Anyone got any leads?

Also, since so far this is one I like enough to keep, anyone have a lead on a clean stock barrel (The marker is a dark gold color, but I think the original barrel would have been black?) and box? I like to, when possible, have everything "complete" for my personal markers (which is why I bought this marker, to get the stock "earth" Axe barrel that came with it, to "complete" my Axe).

Yeah, it looks like contacting Valken and/or Mokal it's probably going to be my only option.
