Takedown for cleaning requires 2 different allen wrenches. I agree that a snake is MUCH better than removing the barrel to clean with standard patches.
The really difficult part we're talking about, though, is the complete takedown. And that sort of takedown is almost never necessary. I wouldn't discount a gun just because of the difficulty of disassembly. The Ruger 10/22 is even more difficult! It's not your self-defense gun, just a plinker or hunter.
