Default How many firearms can you disassemble

How many firearms can you disassemble and reassemble simply by memory? No lookin up any hints. I thought of this the other night when I looked at mine. Realized I have a couple I still need assistance with. Time to practice...

14 I know
3 not yet.

When you say disassemble, do you mean down to bits (detail strip) or field strip?

I could probably disassemble any firearm. It's the reassembly that gets a bit tricky for me.

The only gun I have that I can clean without referring to instructions is the revolver. I still have to refer to manuals for the other two. There's always one step or so that I forget. I haven't been shooting lately so it's been a while. I've not owned my guns all that long to be a whiz at it yet.
