Mine came off by simply unscrewing it by hand. Standard right-handed thread, turn counter-clockwise to unscrew.

I read some are hand tight like biggerhammer says. Mine was really tight. I ended up using a strap wrench. Once I got the initial movement, then it's just simple unscrewing by hand. Afterwards I see some evidence of blue loctite on the threads. Use strap wrench to avoid marring the surface.

Thanks for the tip  :)
I used a strap wrench and it came off....no doubt it had loc-tite on the threads.
Now just need to know the thread pitch and find a decent comp even if it ads some overall length to the rifle.
The faux suppressor just don't do anything for me :)

Use a heat gun to heat up the end cap.  U used the strap wrench and I ended up unscrewing the faux can body out of the end cap being left hand threaded.
See this post.
