I'm having a serous issue with disassembling my older model Ruger Redhawk!:mad:
At 1:24 of this disassembly vid (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSPi3ZHUCeY) he knocks out the pin, however when I try the same it will not budge. Any help would be great.

Hmmm,

You might want to let a drop of oil sit on it for a bit, as that should almost drop out with finger pressure. It has on every DA Ruger I've ever tackled, which would be every one since the Security Six.

I would set the piece on a solid padded surface and give it a gentle tap with a proper diameter brass drift. Even stainless steel isn't entirely immune to sweat and humidity, and it is likely the cause of the problem.

Nothing like a cheap, simple fix.

Glad it was easy :)
