    The only pistol that I've owned that was a nuisance to field strip was my stainless steel Colt Gold Cup. The bushing was so tight on the barrel that they supplied a wrench to remove it. Ideally a gun should field strip without the use of any tools. But I see more and more that some tool is required. The new Nano requires a screwdriver. Some require a pin. I think that manufacturers should design the take down that does not require any tools. The Gold Cup required the tool because of the tight fit on the match quality barrel to the bushing. It loosened up a bit as it aged but it always required that I use the wrench.

    A better question might be which ones are HARD to break down and clean:

    Top on my list are the Kahr's. Springs are very strong and make it hard to align to release.

    I agree. In general I don't see this aspect of a firearm an important factor in choosing a weapon. By in large the more difficult weapons to field strip are the ones that have a specific design criteria they are addressing.

    My example of the Gold Cup which was addressing the accuracy, and the Kahr which is addressing small size and light weight, and the Nano which requires a screw driver, and the Sig Sauer 290 which I read requires three hands--the last two trying for the smallest package possible.

    But weapons that are just "compact" or larger generally assemble and disassemble rather easily. Certainly those intended for the military will. I cannot imagine any branch of the US military choosing a weapon that requires tools to field strip.

    The M&P and XD are easier to break down than the Glock. Though the Glocks are very easy. The Ruger P series I had tended to be a slight pain but not bad either.

    The things that will help you decide are things like pulling the slide and lowering, twisting, turning the lever, things like do you have to pull the trigger and what not.

    there are probably videos on youtube that show you how to break each fo these guns down and you could see for yourself.

    Easy

    My Bersa 9UC pistol. Drop the magazine, turn the little handle down and the slide comes off. Smooth as silk.

    Walther P99 and PPS. Doesn't get any easier.

    My Walther PPS was a pain in the butt compared to my glock, xd, and M&P's. Though just slightly easier than my Ruger P99

    I don't think that you'll find anything easier to break down than M9/92-Series.

    IMHO Glock is the easiest -- Springfield XD, Beretta, Sig, CZ are also easy. 1911 is a PITA the FIRST TIME -- gets easier. Have no experience with any Ruger or S&W semiautos.

    I have owned both berettas and glocks. I believe berettas are the easiest to disassemble, clean, then reassemble. just make sure you have it pointed in an upward angle when you disassemble. glocks are also fairly e-z to do same.
