reg is on so tight.. how to get it off?

soo im trying to take my custom products regulator off, it screws into a block on my smart parts vibe, i took off the 'block' with the reg attached to it, so i had to unscrew an air hose from the solenoid to do so just so i dont accidently screw anything up and can move the reg wherever to try to unscrew it..
it is not coming of! super tight.. suggestions for loosening it up?

You might have to strap wrench it or something.

Just incase you did cross the threads, a good idea might be to separate the bonnet from the rest of the tank; that way it might be a little bit easier to work with. Of course make sure the tank is empty. Also Tri-Flow is the best thing I have ever used for this sort of thing, but if the threads are stuck I dont know how your going to get the Tri-Flow on them.

Why do people do this wanna-be hk thing? I mean hk people dont even play paintball, they just whine and start drama while wearing the ugliest stuff. Seriously you find light blue and pink to be attractive colors for your parents 1500 dollar investment (your gun/marker)? If you want to whine keep it off the field and save it for the internet; O wait! THATS EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO! Haha, if you don't play then don't whine.


I want your G6r parts and upgrades, sell them to me, because you wont get anything for them if you sell/trade them with the gun.

WD-40 IS A SOLVENT. You get this in your air system and you can kiss your o-rings a sticky goodbye. Please clean off internals as much as possible.

You may scratch your reg and block this way, but I'd use a pair of vice grips on the reg and clamp down the block. Clamp down hard enough to not lose grip. Good luck.

Try a strap wrench. If it doesn't work use the rubber strap from the wrench and wrap it around the reg. Then use a pair of vices or pliers to get it off. Using that method I have never had a issue getting anything off, no matter how tight its on there, and all the while never scratching your reg.
