I usually put the end of the gas tube in a vise and twist the wood 180 degrees. It might come off kind of hard, but the trick is to hold the gas tube so you can twist the wood off.

Use masking or duct tape on the end of the gas tube so you don't scratch it up. Put the gas tube in the vice, take a hand towel and wrap it around the wood and twist the top handguard off.
