      Which 9mm are EASY to Break Down & Clean??

      I have enjoyed shooting a Beretta 92 for the past year -- I have learned how to break it down and clean it. My understand is that its one of the easier 9mm guns to break down and clean -- at least one of the guns that are worth shooting.

      Can anyone else share with me other guns that are easy to break down and clean? Glock im told fits this group....anything else?
      Thanks!!

      the beretta/taurus breakdown makes easy stuff look hard... others that break down nearly as fast are the metal framed p220 offsprings by sig and the cz75/tang clones..... but basically it comes down to repetition, do any gun a few times and easy of breakdown fails to be an issue

      The Glocks are famously easy, but the FNX is one of the easiest....it uses a simple twist lever. The CZ's are also easy.
      The hardest I have experienced are the Kahr's.

      My first auto was a Colt Combat Commander (.45, 1911 weapon). Up to that time I had only revolvers, and the breaking down of the weapon seemed intimidating (What if I can't get it back together?) I had a friend do it with me once and after that it was simple.

      Most of these are. Some seem to require three hands, and unfortunately most of us are born with just two.

      After you've done this a couple of times almost any weapon will seem simple to field strip. Going beyond field stripping is often the job of a gunsmith. For instance I've never replaced a fireing pin or an extractor myself (though I understand that with a Glock those jobs can be done by the gun owner).

      Typically I think most people stop at the field stripping and let a gunsmith tackle anything that goes beyond that.

      I really think this should be a non-issue. As I stated earlier and others also stated, the field stripping of most semi-autos is not a daunting task. Pick whatever weapon you like. If it is a Glock it will disassemble in 30 seconds. If it is a 1911, it will take a full minute. I doubt that any weapon takes more than two minutes to break down and another two to reassemble. Most take less time than that.

      I think you should be concentrating on the other aspects of the weapons when you are making your final choices.

      The BHP is a piece of cake to strip.

      The Sig P series are easy as they use a swing down take down lever, and slide comes right off....the SP 2022 is a bit harder as the take down lever has to be removed as well....both I would call easy to field strip.

      Most guns that would typically be issued to a LEO or soldier are going to be pretty simple. Things may be done differently from brand to brand, but none of them are going to difficult.
      Didn't see them listed- XD & XDm are pretty childproof to take down & reassemble.
      The worst gun I own for take down is a Ruger MK3 (.22) and it's not that bad once you take the time to become familiar with it.

      I agree with overkill, I have quite a few brands of handguns and none are real hard to break down. They are all just a little different and remembering whow to do which ever brand you have is the hardest part. I have yet to find one that if you know what you are doing and do it correctly iss in the least bit difficult!

      we've had new guys field strip and put back together beretta's in 12 seconds or less the first time they had ever actually seen one (with some coaching, practice and motivation) so it's definitely up there on the ease of disassembly list.

      Most other firearms I've gotten my hands on have all been fairly easy as well. Takes a little figuring out sometimes, but once you get it.. well, you get it. It's like riding a bike, once you figure out that balance is easier with momentum it just works

      Very easy, and Glocks are also. Both will spoil you.

      Beretta PX4 Storm; Beretta 92/96 not necessarily in that order, all you do with the Storm is pull down on the tabs and the slide is released, no need to squeeze the trigger or move the slide rearward to relieve pressure on the recoil spring. Simply the most ingenious and simple takedown I've ever come across.

      Agree with statement about the Kahr.. a little of a challenge but easy one you know how it wants handled its a cake.

      ugar p series i think is super easy.

      bersa 380 thunder was uber easy.

      Jennings 9 was easy to take down too, but is a junk gun.

      Agreed. Simple design and an awesome action.

      Lots of easy ones noted, but I've got to believe that nothing is faster or easier than a Glock. 3 or 4 large components, requires no tools, no small pieces to misplace or fumble with, and surfaces to be cleaned are easily accessible. And, given Glock's reputation for reliability under extreme conditions... maybe you don't have to clean it at all

      Although I have no experience with this, I would tend to thing that other striker fire designed guns (like the Ruger SR9s, XDs, M&Ps, etc...) may be similar in this regard. I consider how easy it is to clean a gun before I purchase it, but it's not a major factor (hence, I own a Ruger Mark III).
