Lower tube reshaping

So about a month ago I picked up a non-working PGP for pretty cheap. It needs a good re and re and it'll be back up and running. But here's where the title comes in. It looks like it was dropped at some point (or worse) and the bottom tube at the hammer is misshapen. How would someone go about reshaping the tube without screwing up everything.

Have any pics? Is it near the end, where the tube is slotted? On way you can carefully re-shape it is with an empty 12gram. You need something round so that you can gently massage the tube back to round. You kind of stick it in the tube and roll it around in circles to bend it back out.

I have a steel rod I use for this. Then use a vise and vise grips with lube. Just used it to fix a crushed pgp works better then a 12g.
