As I mentioned, you could try a nut cracker, but maybe some sort of cement/brick block with an edge may work by rubbing the barrel on it (I haven't tried that, though).

You could try boiling water -- the glue _might_ melt before the plastic. Or might not. And the gun's other parts might or might not survive that treatment. But I've seen it used, many years ago, to soften polystyrene cement so model kits that were glued incorrectly could be taken apart and fixed...
