So i bought this item earlier this week, i opened it and there were no screens with the pipe. But there was one in thenpipe already. Also there was a hex screw and not a regular Philips. And a couple days later i turned it and it totally came apart. Thankgod i found all the pieces. But other than that it is a great pipe, as well as the grinder. When you smoke out of it it can give some major hits. So it does work great but if you get it, get an allan wrench and tighten the screw and you should be fine. It all basically comes all apart to clean. But all together it is very easy to put back together. I really hope this helps you out.
