These threads are fun. Nice to see similar experiences :smile:
Easiest to field strip: P7M8, any Glock.
Most difficult: well, when I first got into handguns many moons ago, it too me forever to figure out my Ruger Mk II Gov't Target & then a few years later, a semi-custom 1911.

the ruger semi-auto .22lr family pistols have to be the hardest to disassemble and reassemble...even when carefully following the manual

without a manual, i defy anyone to figure out how to take down a ruger center fire semi-auto without venting aloud

Gotta say the Beretta 92 series beats the Glock handsdown for ease of dissassembly. Maybe not for completely taking it apart down to springs and pins, but for field stripping, way easier and safer too. On a Beretta you do not have to pull the trigger to take apart. And before you argue about the Glock being easier, this is the perfect time of the year to prove it. Go out in the rain or snow, when it is nice and cold. Get your hands wet you can even wear gloves if you like. And try to take apart your Glock with cold wet hands, just like you were in the bush for weeks at a time, and your gun was filthy from all the shit and corruption that was all around you. Beretta's by far the easiest.

Got go along with you on this one. Glock is easy and the Ruger MkII has been one that almost drove me nuts!

I feel so vindicated after reading others troubles with the ruger .22s. I thought that I was loosing my freakimg mind trying to take that damn thing apart and put it back together.

I sold my Ruger .22 after the second time I tried to take the thing apart. I had a Bar. 92F. It was proably the easiest.

Would agree w/Glocks being very easy. My SIG's are as well. Worst for me is an old Walther P38.

After I finally figured it out, it's easy. The Ruger 22 just has its own personality :wink: The big plus to it is that it has great accuracy!

how can anything compare, for ease of disassebly, to the beretta or the sigs? lock back slide and pivot lever!!!

i don't think another pistol can compare for "frustration factor" with the ruger .22's...it's just the combination of lining parts up that don't want to.

Taurus PT-911 9mm semi-auto is one of the easiest. Push button on right side of frame with your 1st finger and rotate pivot lever down with thumb and pull slide off!

I have both the Beretta and the Glock.

Glock:

1. Drop mag
2. Cycle the slide (to make sure its really unloaded)
3. Pull trigger
4. Retract the slide reward a bit
5. Pull down on slide catch.
6. Pull foward to remove the upper.
7. Pull guide rod/spring out the side.
8. Pull bbl up and out.
DONE: Time elapsed (5 seconds)

Beretta 92FS
1. Drop mag
2. Cycle slide
3. Push button or right side and hold
4. Pull lever on left side to 6 o'clock
5. Pull lower off of upper.
6. CAREFULLY remove guide rod and spring (seperate items)
7. Pull bbl up and out.
Done: Time elapsed (5 seconds)

One extra step for the glock and one extra part for the beretta. Same elapsed time. Whats the point? Call the ATF and ask them, they seem to think they know everything about guns.

LOL

Anybody with comments about stripping Browning HP's or similar CZ 75's ? I'm considering buying one or the other. After reading some threads about difficulties with servicing semiautos, it seems that some of the safety features present the most difficulties in reassembly ??

Field stripping the Brownings or the CZ's is no problem. Detail stripping is harder than with a 1911 or a Glock, but you shouldn't need to do that for routine cleaning.

BTW, am I the only one here who's ever launched the recoil spring plug from a 1911? :wink:

Easiest: Makarov
Hardest: Ruger .22 pistol or MY Glock 21. I have a hell of a time with it. (My 30 is easy though.)

I would have to say the easiest would be a 15-16th century match lock. One moving part.

I have to agree with others on the Ruger Standard being the hardest. The first time I ever stripped one it took me until 3am to get it back together. Now it takes me 15 minutes to strip, clean, lube and reassemble. The first time was frustrating though!

Easiest would be a 92 series Beretta or Taurus, hardest I have done is my AMT .380 backup you have to drive out the roll pin and putting her back together is a bit of a challenge as well got to get the Hammer barrel slide just right and then hammer the pin back in

IMHO, The SiGs have to be very near the top on both easiest and hardest. The P series SiGs you simply lock back, lower lever and slide off. But then there is the SiGPro. For the SiGPro, they spent years look for the worst possible features on all of the guns out there, and they did their homework well.

Wouldn't the easiest handgun to field strip be a revolver?

Step one: Open the cylinder. Done.

I have a Benelli B-76 9MM which can only be field stripped by someone of Italian descent while playing Tony Bennett on the stereo....

desert eagle strips down in 5 seconds,and enables you to change from 41 to 44 to 440 to 50 caliber.going to 357 takes a little longer since this requires changing the bolt.
