Pex - Should fitting be able to turn after crimp


1/2 pex - I'm using compression rings and after I crimp the ring I can turn the fitting in the tube. According to the go/nogo gauge the ring is compressed enough.
Should I be able to turn the fitting in the tube?

thanks

sometimes they do twist. Not too easily though.
