    I not certian but I believe they will. The 391 and 390 are different but i think the 3901 are just cheap 390's. I think it has to do with the lenght of the piston section underneath. Someone please chime in.

    Gene I am 100% certain they will not work. This is not a guess but a fact.

    BAD 303, are you thinking 391 and not 3901? Yes, barrels and forearms interchange.

    Tron Could you post pics of a 3901 with a 390 barrel installed that has been shot and works? Beretta says it will not work and was done so for a reason. I inquired about this about a year ago with Beretta while at the Grand American shoot. I can not remember why but it had to do with the gas systems or barrel lugs on the barrels. I was going to buy a 3901 and use my sporting barrel on it and was told it would not work. Thanks

    I've done it lots of times. Beretta will probably also tell you that a 391 stock wont fit because they want to sell you a "special" stock for a 3901. They'll tell ya that you NEED a 3901 forearm as well. It's all marketing.
