Question spring break in

is it bad to try and break in new springs with revolver shackles... the shackle always seems to be hitting the body, )the front part of the shackle box if you will)

Re: spring break in

Actually that is common for Revolvers(or scissors) period.To make the scissor work means both parts(the pivot point) converge at a point much further forward than the line of a conventional shackle(does that make sense).If you look close you can see where the bolt hits(it got worse from there).
