    You know, the opposite way you put it on. Lefty tighty, righty loosey.

    I had the same problem. I wrapped a cloth around it to protect the surface and toruqed it off, then repeated the removal again and again.

    If trying to remove it the wrong way seems to have it hopelessly jammed on the barrel, put the thing in the freezer over night. Throw a little heat on the TP in the morning-just a little and only on the TP-and it will come off PROVIDING you turn it the correct way.

    Funny...I picked up my new 9SD today, and encountered the same thing. Realizing however that it must be left hand thread before seeing this thread. The lefthand thread makes sense for a right handed shooter screwing on a supressor with the pistol in the right hand, suppressor in left and muzzel facing down range.

    What does not make sense is why an MP5 is right handed, now you cant share supressors. adaptor maybe, but not from a tactical stand point.

    Please chime in on this, I would like to know why.
    thanks

    This made me LOL, If you already know that its a left hand thread and thus is different from what youre used to. Try as other stated, use a penetrating oil like PB blaster and use a towel to protect the finish and goto town with a wrench.

    Just in case you didn't quite understand what some here are saying:

    The way it screws on and off, is opposite from the way you would expect. Clockwise to remove it and counter-clockwise to tighten it. ;)
    HK is the way!

    I got mine right off, after I tightened about an 1/8th of a turn in the left (but wrong direction)!!
