Default Beginner with a minor question

Hello everyone,
I am recently new to airsoft, started a few months back and go to an indoor arena every now and again. I have a question that involves removing an orange tip from my gun. I want to salvage the orange tip for ATF purposes, but want to put a mock suppressor on. I have a Cybergun Fn Herstal P90. I am unsure if the threading is positive or negative and I am unfamiliar if I have either a pin or a hex screw in my orange tip. The screw or pin or whatever is hollow because when I shine a light through the barrel i can see the light. Anyone have any experience. Thanks everyone. Pictures attached.

I would bet that you have a pin, and the threading is probably negative because negative is pretty universal

Even with a pin, it's probably glued on, so you'll need to soften the glue before removal. As for the pin, just knock it out with a nail setting tool.

Or for those without a nail setting tool, use a small screwdriver. Like the ones you use on glasses.

Sniper, very true, but a set of punches comes in handy, I use them all the time when working on guns. Harbor Freight has a decent set for very little.
