all you need to do is find a nut wrench the size of the flat parts on the flash hider and it comes off relatively easy.

I have an MP7 coming in soon and was wondering this myself. I was just thinking a proper size wrench and lefty loosey would do the trick... anything else I should know about? (Is the hider epoxied on... any risk of rotating the barrel in the receiver... etc.?)

I don't know the MP7 specifically but airsoft muzzle threading is almost universally "left handed" or "counter clock wise." Trying to twist the wrong way ain't gonna work.  "Righty Removey" may be more appropriate here but get specifics before putting a wrench on it.  

I'd absolutely not d*ck with this until after the KWA warranty is over and retain it afterwards as KWA and many others will refuse to service an airsoft gun without the Orange Tip.

Giving instructions to the removal of the orange safety markings is prohibited on these forums... :/

While I would not presume to suggest you remove the flash suppressor.  Nor would I give instruction regarding how that is accomplished.  Should you need to remove the hider for the purpose of repair...please note that it has a CLOCK WISE THREAD.
