if the macro fitting is seized in the regulator, foregrip or asa the threads on the reg, foregrip or asa are probably stripped as well meaning that you probably won't be able to use it after you get it out.

If you still want to try I'd try putting your reg/foregrip/asa in a vise and attach some vise grips to the fitting. Good luck, hope you get it out.

Ah, ok, well still the vise and vise grips would have worked there. For future reference try to give us as much details as possible when you have a problem. It will be easier for us to help.

Some break-free might help too before you start...give it an hour to soak in.
