I don't believe so.

The ROA grip frame is model XR3-RED. The New Model Super Blackhawks use XRN-3RED which is the same dimensions as the XR3-RED but has different mounting provisions for the transfer bar and new trigger spring mechanism.

Here's a primer on Ruger SA grip frames:

mykeal is correct, it's not a direct swap. You have to fabricate a way to hold the trigger return spring.
