Default How do I detail strip a M&P .22 compact

As the title says i want to detail strip the .22 compact, but can't seem to find a video or schematic anywhere for the smaller gun. There are plenty for the full size however. Does anyone have details on how to accomplish this?

For those that will ask why.
1) i want to clean it better than a field strip will do.
2) I want to reassemble it without the manual safety.

I have read all the old posts and none have details on how to do it, they are filled with useless information that doesn't ever answer the original question.

As for the removal of the safety, I am aware why it is there, this is a range toy and the safety lever is in the way, I have to adjust my grip to shoot the gun. When trying to use the slide lock, I can't do so without engaging the safety, again because it is in the way.
The solution is to remove it.

However I am not in a hurry to just tear into the gun and have springs go flying because I don't know what to watch for. And if something does fly out I can't find a schematic to see where it came from or order a new one if needed.

The owners manual pp 25-27 covers disassembly:

Do you want something beyond what's in the owners manual?

There's nothing I hate worse than searching for a video to detail strip/disassemble a gun, only to find out it's a how-to on field stripping the pistol, which is NOT detailed disassembly. Grrrr.

Here's a couple of videos on detailed disassembly of the M&P22 Compact.

I've stripped the slide before and it's not so bad, but watching the video convinced me I'll NEVER do the frame

My S&W MP Compact 22 is the only "non-Glock" I have. One of the things I really like about Glock - how easy they are to work on.
