    I can take my Glock-36 apart behind my back...I said I could, not that I do...pretty simple.

    Sig p238... It bit me once on my first attempt to strip it. Even though it was my own fault, I still get leery when it comes time to clean it.

    Commander 1911 with a bull barrel. There's no bushing and I rarely have a bent paper clip handy!

    I have to agree on both accounts

I just got a Ruger 22LR revolver with adjustable sights so I don't think I will shoot the 22/45 as much. I think the 22/45 is fun to shoot and I use lots of ammo with it. We call them ammo burners.

    As far as Rifles My FNAR is a pain. but I am used to Garands, M1As and Ar-15s.

    I hate cleaning the ruger 22/45. I feel exactly the same way. If I shot it all the time I would remember the tricks. But I dont and I have to read the manual, and that guns re assembly really pisses me off.

    On the other hand, glocks are sooo easy.

    Full-size 1911. Always a PITA to align the barrel link hole with the frame holes and at the same time try not to scratch the frame up while putting the slide stop back in. Most steps in field stripping of any firearm I have ever owned, too. Gotta depress the recoil spring plug, turn the barrel bushing, remove the recoil spring and plug, remove the slide stop lever, then you can take the slide off the frame...maybe I'm just too spoiled with the ease of removing a simple pin on my two Kel Tecs and the takedown lever on my M&P9.

Besides, it doesn't need to be stripped much more than about every brick or so. If anyone is so totally upset with theirs, PM me and let's make a deal. Otherwise, get a pistol-length bore snake and a small toothbrush and that takes care of cleaning for the first 10,000 rounds or so.

    And the CW9? Line up the index marks, push out the slide stop, and the gun just about falls apart in your hands. Sharp edges, for sure, but hardly complex.

    My least favorite to field strip so far is the Garand, but that's mostly out of its newness to me and a few detail parts I haven't committed to visual memory yet. But I love and respect that gun so much, I just view that as the price of getting to know it without a drill instructor barking at me.
    I imagine it's all what you are familiar with, I don't care for the Ruger Mark's either, because I'm not all that familiar with them, but I'm surprised at how many think the 1911 is difficult, when it's one of the easiest for me, because I am familiar with them.

    Hardest Civilian= any 1911. Best pistol made, but tries your patience like no one's business. Guess that could be military, too.
    Hardest Military= toss up between the MK 19 and Browning M2. Taking apart M2 is easy, but having to use a headspace and timing gauge--ergh! Cool concept about barrels though, and proves we had some smart people back in early 20th century. But if I were to got stabbed through my nomex on more time on the 'Fire' gauge... As for the MK 19-- GOD FORBID IT'S CHARGED WHEN THE BACK PLATE IS TAKEN OFF!!!! Saw a kid break his sternum doing it. Not even sure how he muscled the charging plate off in the first place.

    Easiest Civilian= toss up between Glock and SA XDm 3.8. Both have about the same few movements needed.
    Easiest Military= M4. Used to do speed drills when I was a Joe and as long as I don't have to take out the firing pin cotter pin, it's a breeze.
