Orange tip is held on with Thread locker and small set screw.  Threads are CCW (reverse). You will need to heat up tip with a heat gun to loosen the thread locker. Then unscrew to the right. 14mm CCW is the thread size.

Remove outer barrel first. Then heat the area. It will take a lot of heat. Even when ready to remove, it will still take a lot of force to turn the Flash Hider to break the thread locker bond. Use a wet washcloth and a wrench to remove. Remember, it is a Counter Clockwise thread. Righty/Loosy  -  Lefty / Tighty. Be patient. Don't break the Upper Receiver or Outer Barrel trying to remove the Flash Hider. Remember: lots of heat.

Some have reported that boiling water is hot enough to melt the LockTite.  A hair drier certainly is.  Too much heat should be avoided, I melted a KM4 compensator with a heat gun trying to burn the orange paint off it!  Not on the gun.  KWA sells an all black compensator but claims installing it voids the warranty...  :)  There are steel versions for about $5 which fit nicely and do not interfere with the inner barrel -- check this with any replacement muzzle device.

The flash hider has two flat spots for an adjustable/open end wrench. i removed he inner barrel, took off the stove burner grate placed the gun on a mappina with the flash hider over a low open flame, it came off in a minute I was next to the sink with running water


Disclaimer
IMO, mine wasn't coming off with a hairdryer. i DONT suggest this method!

You could always use a pair of channel locks if you don't mind the flash hider getting scuffed up.

Without liquifying the thread lock? i think that could cause damage to the outer barrel.

After the thread lock is heated a wrench fits the flash hider

If you don't have a wrench a ball driver through the flash hider also will work to unscrew it

Everyone's experiences when trying to remove the orange flash hider is different.  But since the orange flash hider is there due to federal regulations KWA can not discuss or give instructions on how to remove the orange flash hider on the company forums.  Unfortunately I have to close this thread.  Sorry.
