    May not be helpful but did you grease the threads before you fitted it?
    May be helpful, heat the supressor from the outside to around 50_60C this will expand it and make it easier to shift. It worked on a muzzle forward one for me, since then coppercote grease wvery time.

    Or try storing it with the suppressor down and give it a generous squirt of WD40 or CRC5.51 where the suppressor meets the barrel

    Leave it to soak for a couple of days the try to loosen it.

    Be patient it will come off.

    Cheers

    A hose clamp on the suppressor should help with some extra purchase with which to torque it.
    I would say some gentle heat would help, it's not like they don't get hot when used.

    And don't store with the suppressor attached.

    And then you have to start asking awkward questions.

    If the normal penetrants are not loosening it then try Kroil or Mouses Milk. Both are excellent products.

    To build on what Marty Henry and P38 said - pull the action, pump as much penetrating oil as you can manage in there - from the back where it contacts the barrel, from the front and try to get it to drop down past the baffles to the muzzle. Try to go for a dedicated penetrating oil, it gives that little bit extra over things like WD40 and the like. Then hit it with a heat gun until it's just uncomfortable to touch (~60-80*C). You don't need or want to go nuts and burn the paint/finish off your suppressor or have any heat colouring whatsoever anywhere.... just at or past the point you can't hold onto the suppressor with bare hands. Focus on the base of the suppressor, but also down from the front end of the suppressor towards the crown. What you're aiming for is the suppressor to heat and expand just enough to suck the penetrating oil in and break whatever corrosion or mechanical lock that has formed. The barrel will heat a bit but that's not your goal. Ideally you'd like the barrel to stay cool/contracted and the suppressor to expand away from it, but the world isn't ideal so don't worry too much, that's just the concept behind it.

    If it doesn't work the first time, take a break, let it cool and try again. If that still doesn't work, flood the whole thing with penetrating oil (or immerse the whole suppressor past the section threaded to the barrel in oil) and leave it for a day in a warm place. Drain the excess oil from the suppressor, wipe it down with solvent so you can get a good grip, and repeat process daily until it works. It's pretty rare it doesn't work the first time or two though.

    Also make sure you're turning the suppressor in the right direction
