Re: revolver shackles...

I have used em. They work good. They are too expensive. The side to side twisting abuses the spring packs pretty bad. I lost all of my teflon inserts on the springs with the revolvers. Then the twisting caused the springs to sag.

I am using new springs now with Hypershackles that have a little lift as a plus and some limited side to side movement. They are hinged like the revolver and open up just as far - if you buy them longer for a little lift they open farther. You can buy 4 for the price of 2 revolvers.

I bought mine at Leon Rosser Jeep. I gave the Revolvers away...the teflon inserts in them were busted and had fallen out.
