I much prefer peel washers as they allow the right amount of torque to index the muzzle device. Though you can do similar to a crush washer by filing it down.

Anyways, what you were doing wrong with the peel washer is you did not heat it. I heat mine under an open flame and they will peel MUCH easier using a razor. I used a bunsen burner in my lab but you could just as easily use a gas stove burner or maybe a butane lighter too.

Heating the washer with a lighter and using a razor blade will do it!
