Same boat. Brand new beautiful WE Wilson Combat Elite + fugly-ass plastic orange tip -somehow- stuck on. I'm afraid to damage it... seems like a lot of plier-force would be required, and I'm not certain if twisting or pulling would be preferable. Not even sure whether it's glued, melted or snap-locked.
EDIT 5 mins later: Got it. Multitool FTW! Bend, wiggle and yank. It's a snap-locked plug. Yanking it out left tiny bits of orange residue in the threaded bits, but I think I can clean that with a Q-tip and solvent.
