Need a little help
My brother snapped the fitting in his valve. Is there any way to get it out other than tapping it?

Is the broken fitting brass ? If so you might be able to solder another piece of brass inside of it so you can unscrew it.
Or drill and tap it for a fine thread bolt, then put red locktite on the bolt screw it in and let it cure overnite,the next day use the bolt to unscrew it.
Here are some of my projects:
Armed Forces Trainer improved rear sight
Dukie lever gun + wood & brass
007-brass-phantom-feed , A little nelly 007 love , 007 piercing pin substitute
Zeus mods , P68SC Remmington 870
KP wood before and after , Wood for an SMG 60 RamBolt MQ Cocker , AT85 boxmag

try tapping it out with a punch. just be careful to not bugger up the threads. You basically want to push it in a turning out motion.
Or, JBweld some cheap hex key in there, let it dry 24 hours, and unscrew.

i am not responsible for any damages caused....
get a flat head screw driver or a hole punch of something small enough to stick in the fitting hole. Stick your tool in the hole at a angle and apply pressure into the side of the fitting. try to unscrew it.
another idea is to jb weld something into the fitting and then try to unscrew it using whatever your welding in... a nail?

Use a screw extractor. Available at any hardware or automotive store. They are purpose-built and work great, as long as you don't get the revs on the drill too fast for it to bite.
The beauty of the Automag is that when you get it set up just how you want it, you discover that you have enough leftover parts to build 2 loaners.
