Among Zorkis this is the rule only for Zorki, Zorki-2, Zorki-3, Zorki-3M, Zorki-3C, Zorki-4 and Zorki-4K, otherwise the shutter will most likely get broken. With Zorki-C and Zorki-2C you can change the shutterspeeds either before or after cocking the shutter without any risk. With Kievs you can also change either before or after but for most proper functioning the shutter it is recommended to do it after cocking the one, especially for Kievs from 1972 to the younger ones.
