Aarg! I got all the obvious and easy parts removed but not in the correct order this caused some hang ups with trigger & hammer pins and had to take a break till now. Its all dismanteled and ready for inspection. The trigger is very smooth my FIL had work done on it and feels similar to how I setup my tcs, haven't checked for wear or damage yet im going back out now to list parts that may need attention. The 3 parts you mentioned do you have a link to get those from?

DASBEAR: I BELIEVE REFLEX264 WAS DOING A REBUILD ON A WELL WORN OLDER REVOLVER. A NEWER REVOLVER CAN BE TWEAKED TO SHOOT BETTER WITH A LOT LESS WORK THAN A REBUILD.

The new super blackhawk hammer takes a longer plunger. I already have the new one but haven't had time to change it. I ended up working all weekend. I may shoot it at 100 yards before changing hammers. I already did a trigger job with the old hammer. Getting it perfect on another hammer is at least an hour job.

reflex264 thanks for your assistance on this project I pretty much gave up on this pistol #1 if it wasn't going to shoot I'll just let it rot in the safe to teach it a lesson. I knew ruger SA's were capable of at least 4in at 100yds and for a hunting revolver thats all I need so after seeing the results of your work I felt encouraged to give it another shot.
I did find Belt mt base pin so hope to have that soon but not sure where to get the cyl lock, trigger/hammer pins ect;.
