Just had to try it. The superlight was made in 93, the 425 in 97. The fore ends had to stay with the barrels. Both locked up tight with no play. Have read repeatedly where this shouldn't work with the Brownings. No I didn't check the fit with micrometers, feeler gauges, or calipers.

Headspace is an important thing to check.

Also looks like you have locking lug engagement issues, the top lever on the upper gun appears to be WAY to the right, more so than that gun ever left the factory with. Top lever on lower gun appears to be at or past center now. Just because barrels "snap on" doesn't mean they "fit".

I do kinda like the two-tone effect of the nickle against blue though, esp on the bottom gun.

Thanks for the input and you're right. The 425 receiver to the superlight barrels is to far right. Not so with the other configuration. Don't understand headspace. Are you referring to barrel face to receiver face or "on face".

Headspace is the measurement from the rim cutout in the barrels to the breechface. Too little and it will be basically impossible to close the gun, too much and the firing pins may not be able to reach the primers.

"on face" is another thing to be checked and a separate issue.
