I've divested myself of my Ruger Red Hawks and Supers... and a friend of mine, Carl R. Nation, (an older gentleman) in Gainesville, FL wrote and asked for instructions to disassemble the cylinder on his SRH.   I don't have those instructions, and no longer have one to tear down to tell him.  He doesn't have a computer, so I'll have to send him written copy.  

I would appreciate it if someone could post those instructions here, that I might print them and mail to him!

Many thanks to all on the forum!

God Bless,

Marshall

Hi Marshall,

A couple of years ago, when I lost a Ruger manual, I called Ruger and they were more than happy to send me a new manual gratus.  I imagine it is still the same.  Maybe that would be the quickest and easiest way to solve the problem.  The phone call is cheaper than a stamp anyway.  Hope this helps.

God bless............  Bill M

ps... the 265gr bullets and my chrono are headed to the range first thing tomorrow.  Film @ 11<!--emo&:0--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':0'><!--endemo-->0

I'll try to help. Start by removing the cylinder/crane assembly from the gun.
1. Insert a small punch into the hole in the top of the crane and depress the cylinder latch lock plunger.
2. While depressing lock plunger, push the cylinder latch pin out of the left side of the crane. The latch, spring and ejector rod can now be removed from the front of the crane.
3. Wrap a large flat blade screwdriver with thin leather. Insert the screwdriver in between the front of the cylinder and the crane and twist gently. This will remove the cylinder from the crane. (the leather prevents scratching the cylinder).
Removing the star requires a special spanner tool and generally should not be attempted.
Hope this helps.
Dave
