Any tips on how to get this done? I have tried several times to get the trigger guard assembly out and the plunger simply will not budge, no matter how much pressure I apply to it. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried using a lever (screwdriver)

That is how I do it with the Security Six and the mechanism is similar.

Do you mean inserting the screwdriver and levering up on the tab to remove it? So far I haven't found a screwdriver that is small enough to try this with.

OK, here is a video.

Also you can go to RugerForum.net and buy the Iowegian Book of the GP100 with a supplement for the SP101 for about 15 plus shipping. Invaluable Ruger gunsmithing info for pretty cheap.

Also watch out you dont lose the pawl spring. It likes to launch. Taking this thing apart in a clear plastic bag would be ideal.

I got it! I used a 3mm hex wrench (key) and applied leverage to the plunger and it finally popped. Now I can give my GP100 a polish job.
