    Extremely User Friendly Semi-auto

    My father-in-law was asking me if I knew of any semi-automatic pistols that are extremely easy to work with as far as field disassembly is concerned for use in a class. I haven't had nearly the experience that some of the folks here have had so what are your thoughs??

    Most semi automatic pistols with the exception of maybe 1911's are very easy to field strip. Sigs, Berettas, and others with takedown levers are as simple as lock the slide back, rotate the lever, pull off the slide, and remove the barrel/recoil spring/rod.

    I would not be concerned about it "for use in a class". You should be familiar with the operation, takedown, and assembly of the firearm(s) you will be owning. If he is teaching a class, maybe he should bring several firearms that have different methods, so the students can learn on a similar platform to their own.

    I can't really think of anything simpler than a Glock pistol to break down and work with for demonstration.

    I find the take down levers easier to work on XD's, Sigs etc vs the glocks finger pinch levers... I am also not a fan of having to pull the trigger on a gun to disassemble... but once you get inside not much is simpler than a Glock!

    You should be able to break down a Glock behind your back...pretty simple.
    It doesn't get much easier than a Glock.

    Now my Kimber?...

    The Glock is a little easier to strip than the Kimber, but neither one is difficult, my 12 y/o daughter can take down either one. Now a Ruger MK III, that's another story

    I'm mechanically DE-clined, and even I can strip my Sig in a few seconds. Seems not only user-friendly, but in my case, idiot-proof as well.

    CZ 75 has 1 large pin that only goes in/out one way, then you have the barrel, slide and spring all going in one obvious way.

    If I remember correctly, most SIG's are similarly easy.

    The Taurus 24/7 I had was a PITA to strip.

    Ok I’ll bite. In the many moons that I’ve been fooling around with things that go boom; I haven’t found any semi’ that comes apart easier and faster than my H&K P7.

    As already mentioned CZ's are fast and easy, so are Bersa's.

    My brother's first gun was a Springer Loaded 1911, and I remember him complaining about taking it down. I was somewhat surprised when I read through the manual and looked at the bushing, the spring plunger, the take-down lever, the barrel link, &c.

    I then proceeded to field strip my SIG P220 in front of him in five seconds and I thought he was going to cry.

    Field stripping a SIG classic involves rotating one lever and separating into five (5) parts: slide, barrel, guide rod, recoil spring, and frame. You don't pull the trigger, and there are no pins of any type involved. There may be other guns as easy to strip as a SIG, but I defy anyone to show me a gun that is easier.

    It doesn't get much easier than a Bersa Thunder.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
