Cleaning the most?

I can't decide if it's my Ruger MKII or the 10/22...

Thanks Ruger for making guns I hate to clean

Ruger Mk.1.

Unholy gyrations to get that thing back together.

Best,

I think it's telling that so far all the replies focus on what it basically the same pistol

Thanks Ruger for making the same pistol 4 times over and not making it any easier to field strip and put back together. You Son of a Bitch

Knight Revolution muzzleloader.  Adjustable trigger?  I beg to differ.  Stainless steel?  Rusts.  Pull trigger; get a click 10% of the time.  Heavy too.

I hated my Ruger Mk 3 so much, I gave it away.

Maybe it was wrong of me to bestow such misery on another human being.  Probably should have destroyed it.

One time I completely disassembled and reassembled it.  I would rather gouge my eyes out with a rusty spork than see the insides of that POS again.

I take it completely apart minus unscrewing the barrel.

Remove stock from upper, remove rear pins, drop out bolt, remove charging handle...
Clean and put back together. It's getting the charging handle and bolt back in that I fucking hate!

Never had a hard time cleanimg my Ruger MKII. I just lock the bolt open,spray the hell out of it with brake cleaner.
Let it drain, then spray with Rem Drilube.

I've had to pound lead out of the barrel so many times I've seriously lost count. No way to do that from muzzle.

Are you shooting golden bullets? If not then a quick squirt of CLP is all thats necessary every 100 or so. It's just one stock screw anyway

Now something that's seriously inconvenient to clean? Flintlock Muzzleloader. 2 hours, every sunday night baby.

The recoil spring will kink just by looking at it when reinstalling the bolt.

I didn't use to clean it that way. After having it and shooting an unknown number of rounds in 10 plus years I decided to break it all the way down. Iirc I had fouled the barrel, not not sure on that. But I've been doing it that ever since.

Shoot copper jacketed bullets to prevent led build up. I never shoot lead bullets anymore because of the problems it causes.

I know but LRN is just so cheap and more available. I recently made the mistake of shooting Thunderbolts through it. I had a brick sitting in there for years... Figured I'd try and shoot it. Mistake on my part, but I knew it was coming. That garbage fouled my new SR22p too. Just pounded lead out of that too. I haven't worked up the moxie to work on the MKII yet...

Either of these I CAN take down / reassemble easily enough - it's just a PITA. After I shoot them I just pull a boresnake through a few times and call it good.

Of all the guns I ever owned, the SVT-40 is the one that I hated to clean the most.  I was an absolute nightmare to field strip.  

It was an excellent design; however, the design was horribly executed.  It was one of the worst military rifles ever.  But it could have been one of the best rifles ever.

Try a Ruger 44 Carbine. Your .22 will be a welcome joy of takedown simplicity and ease of re-assembly after that.

All you guys who think the Ruger MK series are bad to field strip should try to reinstall the bolt and recoil spring on a Winchester 190 sometime. Similar spring/guide rod to as Marlin 60. Half goes into a hole in the back of the receiver, and the guide rod takes up half of what's left. The remainder is a bitch to compress onto the guide/into the hole and keep in place while you install the bolt.
Fun rifle, very accurate and can still be had at times for under $150. Most were farm guns and haven't been cleaned in 40+ years, they need it. As much as I like the rifles, because of the difficulty of reassembly I hope I never find one for a good price again. It'll follow me home and I'll have to clean another one.

I hate taking apart the bolt on my Mosin. Only because you need the damned gauge to set the firing pin. It never goes back in with the same protrusion from the bolt face. Ever.

Toss up between SAW and 240. After a few years of that, everything else is gravy.

Remember that one little piece you could put on backwards if you weren't careful and it would still pass a function check, but when you went to fire it was single shot stoppage time? Trying to remember what it was but fuuuuuuuck that was a long time ago.

i must be the only one one the planet that doesn't have a problem cleaning the Ruger MK pistols..

as for which gun i hate cleaning...these days its all of them, due to time..Id rather be shooting than cleaning, but if I had to pick one i'd say its the 1911...Springs that can poke an eye out, latches that can scratch the finish...

Any gun that I've lubed with slip2k and shot suppressed.

The piles of gunk that build up are ungodly. Not to mention hot water and soap does nothing to the lubricant, so it's gotta go outside to get hosed with gun scrubber.

Think I'm just going to start pressure washing the bastards.
