Try electrical contact cleaner. It will make it cold and when it warms might break loose. You minght try heting it with one of those hand held torches heat it up then let it cool. Either way is how we loosen rusted bolts and plugs.

Take it to a gunsmith and have it fixed right before something else gets messed up.

I agree with wmi, If WD-40 doesn't work,, let a professional gunsmith do it.
