Do you have to remove the screw on the trigger guard to remove the side plate and cylinder? Didnít get a close enough look at it.

No. That screw secures the plunger and spring that tension the cylinder stop. I would leave it be unless you are having issues with the stop, or the stop needs to be removed.

What's that screw for?....

Near as I can see, adding about 20/30% to the value vs. a 4 screw.....

Not a big deal to remove the plunger. If your revolver is really dirty under the sideplate, it is a good idea to strip out the mechanism and clean all parts, plus remove and clean the plunger/spring as well as the cylinder stop. If not, spray if from the inside with some good quality aerosol synthetic oil.

Wink 5 th screw...............

I'm with 'Wamike' as that is really the 4 th screw, the 5th screw just holds down the side plate at the top, and "adds" lots of $$$$ to the guns value.....
