I recall reading in the older Ruger catalogs how you could easily field strip a Ruger revolver into (I think) six major sub-assemblies using only a screw driver. Ruger no longer prints this material in their catalogs. Does anyone know why? I'm thinking of buying a Ruger revolver as an outdoor sidearm and it would be nice to be able to field strip it for thorough cleaning. I once took the side plate off a S&W 66 and caught hell putting it back together after springs and small parts jumped out. I think I'm ready to try Ruger. Thanks for input on this.
