I strip mine down once or twice year. but I only did it to clean the bolt mechanism and trigger group . Now I have a speed strip kit from Majestic arms and I can pull the bolt out in 5 seconds without tearing the whole gun appart. I did the same thing before but I just worked with it a little and it came apart. The next time I made sure it went back together properly.
