The manuals for my Super Redhawks are sitting in storage, (so no pictures) disassembly should be the same.
1. Using screwdriver, remove grips. If he still has the factory grips on the GP, there should be a small pin stored under the LH grip panel. hang on to it.
2. Cock the hammer. Insert the beforementioned pin into the hole at the end of the hammer strut. Release the hammer. Spring tension should now be off the strut assembly, so it should slide right out.
3. Push the hammer pivot out the right side of the frame, hammer should now come right out.
4. Now comes the hard part. Hold gun securely in either extra set of small hands or a padded vise. At the front side of the grip frame you will see a large (1/4" or so) dentent pin that goes from the trigger guard assembly into the frame. Using either a brass punch or a tool from Brownells called the "Ruger Popper", push that detent all the way in. This will be difficult the first time the gun is disassembled!!! With detent pushed forward, you can now pivot the trigger guard assembly forward and remove.
5. Cylinder yoke assembly cannow be pulled straight out the front of the frame.
6. Reassemble in reverse order. No, getting the trigger guard assembly back in isn't much easier than getting it out.
