I certainly wouldn't reccommend using this strategy, it would probably ruin the fitting even more, and it will give you cancer.

I definetly wouldn't recommend doing this and using the fitting again in a gun. You just don't know if it could damage the fitting and it's just not worth it. Just don't mess up the first time, and if you do then just buy a new one.
