Especially regarding the forend and lug. I have a Type3 MX8 O/U and want to add a Type4 S/B. Will the Type3 fore end fit the newer Type4 S/B? Other than minor fitting, what is required to get the job done (I want to use the existing Type3 forend with both the Type3 O/U barrels and Type4 S/B)? If I change the lug to a Type4, will the Type3 fore end still fit?

Any other basic differences in Type3 and Type4 guns?

way too expensive to do that

Just buy a type 3 barrel- they are dirt cheap compared to type 4

Ed has a good idea if you have a separate type 4 forearm that goes with that type 4 barrel

most people do it the other way but yea

Lots of type 4 single barrels though come without a fitted forearm when they are separated

Here's a picture showing a type III & type IV:

You can see the differences.



Modify type IV to fit type III forend is not difficult, but you might devalue the barrel, and narrow it's resale market significantly since type III was discontinued in the mid '70s.
