BAC - SuicideHz looks like he has an MUR upper - I've got a VIS and its not bad to break down. I don't think I'll need to take it apart for anything related to cleaning except on rare occasions or if I get bored. I locks up tight when assembled. Look over on Military Morons and you can find a nice pictorial write-up that shows the break down on it. Basically you flip two levers, take out a couple screws (allen type) and you're done.
