Huh? Maybe on a 1911 or something.
On anything. There's a narrow sear/full-cock engagement surface that doesn't bear up under impact stresses very well. That's why the slide lowers the hammer to the sear instead of dropping it abruptly...and that's why flicking the hammer on a revolver beyond what's needed to check proper engagement is a singularly bad idea.
