    I have 2 XT combos one XT and one XS and i can put what ever barrel i want on the other gun and i dont even know whats the right unsingle barrel for what gun now.But i hear all the time on TS that you cannot change barrels but i really think if they are all newer guns the chance is they will fit

    Browning barrels are fitted with lamp black and file. I once had 5 Brownings, and NONE of them would interchange barrels. I now have three of the same model and production date in different gauges. I have not tried swapping them around.

    Sometimes they will bolt right on. YMMV.

    Yes its very possible to have two guns totally compatible fitwise..if it locks tite with no binding and the lever is just a hair right of center that shows the locking bolt is getting a good bite, then you should be fine

    Miroku holds very tight tolerances, so barrels can fit other receivers (but not guaranteed). The Miroku factory tour (URL above) is interesting.

    I had a XT combo and the barrels would fit one buddys XT but not an other buddys gun. If you were to buy one I would have a gunsmith check it out first.
