wgp reg stuck

I have a wgp stock reg, and I can't twist the top half off of the middle to service it. Can I boil it in water or something to loosen the seals? I already tried a blowdryer.

I wouldn't recommend that at all. You're going to melt or otherwise damage a seal or the reg seat depending on the design.
If you can't get it apart I would recommend taking it to your shop/local field. Otherwise I haven't met a reg yet that could stand up to a vice and pliers. Assuming you don't mind marking the reg up. Also, you don't want to crush it in a vice if you go that route, pad the vice up.

I just got it unstuck! i had to hotglue paper around it (otherwise it would just slip) and stick half in the vice and used monkey pliers to twist the other half. Thanks gor thr help though, because vicegrips was going to be my final method if all others failed.
