    Ruger 10/22 Takedown cleaning question

    For those of you who have the new Ruger 10/22 takedown, do you think the takedown feature makes it easier to clean? I am trying to decide between the Takedown or the black synthetic /Stainless. I think the main deciding factor will be if the Takedown offers substantial savings of time in cleaning or makes it much easier.

    Thanks

    I have a 10/22 TD. Two seconds and the barrel is off, so it makes it VERY easy to run a brush and a patch through it after a range trip.

    I got one about six weeks ago and yes much easier to clean. The real bonus to me is the takedown feature and how well thought out Ruger did this. Now I have a short Barska scope and just changed out the barrel band for one with a piccatiny rail for a bipod.
    No regrets buying this one over the other modes.

    And for the rest of you who don't have the takedown models, a Bore Snake takes care of about 95% of the bore and chamber cleaning you'll ever need on a 10/22, or other rimfires without easy breech access.

    Update: Bought one today

    Just left the Ft. Lauderdale gun show with the takedown model. A few vendors had the takedown with blue stock. Shoot straight was there and had one with the black stock for $359. I offered $329 and they said okay so it's mine. Picked up a bore snake and a BX-25 magazine too.

    Thank you to all who participated and helped me decide, truly appreciated.
