    I have a MX8, 42xxx. Can I get a type 4 barrel and forend, have them fitted to the receiver and still be able to use the original type 3 barrel and forend that I am shooting now?
    Thanks

    Yes you can.I cut the barrel lug on my type 4 so I could use the type 3 for both barrels.

    trying to find type 4 iron was next to impossible to say nothing of the cost.changing the shape of the type

    cost nothing

    As long as you have forends to match each barrel you have no problem. Jake

    Thanks for all of the replies. It appears the answer is that money can fix anything. I think as Mike suggests it would be easier and probably more satisfying to buy a different gun if I was to try something different.
    Thanks again

    I have matched more than a few odd barrels and receivers. As Mike says, sometimes they match like they were born together sometimes three strokes of the master's file is all that is needed. And occasionally, they just don't fit worth a damn. You just have to try em. Jake
