Rigid vang seized

So my rigid vang is a little too rigid, it's seized. It's a spring type one, can't see the manufacturer on the label. Anyway, other than liberal applications of a penetrating lubricant and the occasional engineering tap with a 4lb club hammer, any other suggestions for un-seizing it? I figure the end cap must unscrew somehow as I can't see any retaining pins so perhaps if I can get that off then I can dismantle the whole thing and see if it's worth saving.
