Strap wrenches and a hair dryer to warm the barrel up.

Etek Barrel is reverse thread so turn clockwise to loosen. I did not know when I first got my Etek. I placed it in boiling water for three days to loosen because i thought the barrel was gunked up. Complained to a teammate and he took it, turned it clockwise and handed it back to me separated. Try that first.

Yeah I knew it was reverse thread. Ive had it for awhile. It was just stuck. I got it fixed though. Thanks for the input guys. All it took was some super sticky grip gloves from harbor freight. Didnt even have to buy them. Went in with my dad and he held one end and twisted it while i did it to the tip.

Super sticky gloves worked for me. Give that a shot and let us know.
