G 43 disassembly

Hey guys i recently acquired a G3 that is in pretty good shape though it had had a but plate added to it. Anyways i was wondering if anyone knew of any good tutorials or guides to disassembling and cleaning the gun. i'm kind of intimidated because I always heard that in WW2 that the G43 was a PITA to takedown.

Field stripping is pretty easy. If you don't find a better place, come back and I will give you a quick tutorial. DO NOT, NOT, try to disassemble the receiver other than to remove the bolt carrier and bolt for cleaning. Nothing else needs taken apart except for part replacement if needed.

On reassembly make ABSOLUTELY SURE you put the locking lugs back in the bolt. Fail to do so and firing the gun can make one's life somewhat interesting.
