    Hi all, I am new to rifles and the SU22CA is my first one at that. My question is does anyone know how to field strip this to clean . I tried following the manual but it shows pics and instructions for the PLR22. I am sure the directions are similar for the SU but it would be more helpful on how to proceed with the rifle. For example how to remove the forend ( cant seem to get the top half off the front sight) Any guidance from the KelTec gurus would be helpful :D

    Thanks!!

    The manual shows the PLR-22 but the SU-22 is nearly identical. The manual is better than most disassembly instructions in firearms owners manuals.

    Once the Recoil Tube is pushed back into the receiver and removed, the Compact Forend can be removed my unscrewing the Compact Forecap. Pull the Compact Forend forward, separate the Compact Forend into the top and bottom pieces and they are easily removed from the SU-22.
