It probably had some water or cleaning solvent get inside between the steel body and the brass or aluminum inner tube and the corrosion has them locked together. You're on the right track pushing from each end, but use a flash light to make sure there isn't an alignment tab or dimple on one side.

You might try turning a dowel to size, or a find or make a washer that just fits and tap against that. You might also be able to run the adjuster base screws back in and get it to break loose with some tapping on them.

Just be sure you know where the lenses are before you push or tap.
