Pretty good description, certainly much better than the drawing that comes with the manual. I did it fairly quickly. I think you may need to clarify how to put the hammer spring in... i knew intuitively to put it under the bolt pin and align the bent part with the bolt lock, but it might help others to fully explain it. I didn't see where you were supposed to put the magazine lock pin back in place, but it's fairly easy to do at the end. I'd give it a 9/10 I don't like that I had to register to see the close-up pictures, but I guess that comes with the territory. Only I had everything disassembled at that point so I had little choice but to register to figure out how to put it back together!
