I wiggle the flash hider and I believe it's the hider but I don't know how to tell for sure.
Sorry, my bad.  The MP7 has no set screw.  It is a CW thread which is opposite of the AEG's that KWA makes.  And the outer barrel is one piece which is what I think threw me off.  Are you sure you are turning in the correct direction?

KWA seems to very inconsistent with glueing on the flash hiders.  My MP7's came off relatively easily, so did my SR10.  My friend's SR10 that I'm working on's flash hider will not move the slightest bit.  I tried a heat gun even, I'm almost afraid I'll melt it to the barrel if I try again.

For your MP7, try removing the top rail and then VERY carefully remove the front cover to make sure you don't crack it.  You will be able to get to the flash hider better and see what you're doing. See here:

Ok thanks! I'll try that and hopefully it will work.
If I break the front cover thing can I order another one from the pro shop?
And for me personally I don't mind the orange tip, I just want to put a tracer on lol.

Yes they have them.  I think they are 10 bucks or so.

If you really want it off and it still won't budge, it is possible to disassemble the gun without taking it off.  You could take it down to just the flash hider and outer barrel and then maybe you can get a better grip on it and not damage anything.

Ok if my gun were to break, and I sent it in with an orange flash hider unglued, would they glue it back on?

I doubt it.  They didn't for my SR10. I'm going to be slightly pissed if they glue the MP7 one back on which I just sent in to be fixed... I believe it's only for customs reasons COMING IN to the states.  I don't think it has to be glued for shipping it around inside the US.

Double feeding.  Not all the time though.  I cleaned everything up and the bucking seemed fine when I compared it to my friend's.  I just want it to be working 100% before I change the barrel so I know what's up if something goes wrong.
