    On which brands/models of guns can you change barrels without special fitting?

    I often see barrels for sale and wonder how much is involved in making them work.

    Barrels can be interchanged without fitting on the Blaser. I bought a set of 20 ga. barrels and they will fit on my 12 ga. Sporting F3 and also my Super Sport F3. I can also switch the 12 ga. barrels on them.

    There is very little fitting with most krieghoff barrels. At least with the K's that I have owned. Bulge.

    Bulge is right---I have 2 un-sgls-- O/U---Top-sgl--- and 2 K-gun receivers and all fit perfect to each receiver----Those bbls will last a lifetime with care.
    I also have 4 superposed and each bbl is only for each receiver----So it's the gun your dealing with---You have to figure it out with each gun----

    My bought used barrels for his K80, and they required extensive refitting by Krieghoff @ the World in 2010.

    Something wrong with that receiver skeetman---Mine matched up with no problem.Had them all fitted by Allem guns---No problem
    The nice thing tho is that it was possible to fit them---Wish I could do that with some of my other guns---Each gun has it's own fingerprint----Just saying--

    If its a Beretta what's involved is a fitting by Cole's in ME for around $125 plus shipping.

    Valmets are interchangeable. You can shoot various gauges and rifle calibers with one receiver.

    Blasers are designed to interchange barrels and stocks without any fitting.
