Thinking of adding a set of O/U barrels to my MX-3(not special, AL date code). I really want a set with the adjustable rib but need to know what models will work with my receiver and iron. And how do I identify if a barrell will or will not fit? Thanks AJ

What BigM said. After market rib and MX-3 barrels will have a round bottom where it fits in the receiver. All other MX series barrels have a squared bottom where it meets the receiver.

BigM and HAP are correct.
My reply to your PM has more details.

I have to wonder if a competent machinist/gunsmith would be able to mill off the appropriate parts of an MX8 style barrel to fit in an MX3 receiver?

My universal Single barrel fits either type of receiver but it was designed that way by Perazzi because of demand by MX3 and MX3 Special owners to buy an extra barrel. My MX3 was built in 1982 and the universal Single barrel was built in 1993.
