I'm a fan of boiling. If you can't get the slide out, make sure to try and keep the diaphragm out of the water as well. The diaphragm is a bitch to deal with. It can be damn near impossible to buy the stock slider with the diaphragm. There are Ebay kits where you can cut away part of the diaphragm and then glue a new one in it's place. But try not to go there.
