Are lever action rifles meant to be field stripped?

And when I say field strip I don't necessarily mean in the field, but for routine cleaning. Marlin seems to have the easiest disassembly process. But some of the others, like Henry and especially Winchester, look a lot more complex just to take apart.

I've been spoiled by Sig P226s and Glocks into thinking a gun should be dead simple to field strip. But how is one SUPPOSED to clean a lever action sufficiently? Open action and from the muzzle to the chamber?

Or delicately remove all the screws and go from there?
