I have a Winchester 101 Pigeon Grade 12 Gauge Skeet and was interested in some sub gauge barrels a gent had for sale. They came from a set and I was pretty sure that these sub barrels were made for a smaller receiver than the 12ga. I have. Can anyone of you experts in these guns either confirm or deny this? I would like to buy the barrels, but don't want him to ship them to me only to discover that they will not fit my receiver. Thanks a bunch, in advance for your help! Regards, Pete

It the barrels are from a smaller frame receiver, they will not work on your 12ga frame.

If the barrels are from a 4-barrel set...maybe 50/50 chance. The 50% chance they do fit, they will highly likely need to have a final fitting to work properly.

They should work on your pigeon frame if the barrels are from a 12gauge frame.
Most of the 12 gauge frame
dimensions From Japan are close. Barrels will need to be fitted
To your locking block. Also forearm irons will need to
Be fitted. The locking hook on the barrels may be
In a little differant spot than your pigeon barrels. Barrel
Thickness maybe a little wider/thinner also. All things
To consider . The barrels you are looking at are from what
Model 101? Are they a standard 101? Are they from another
Pigeon grade? Barrel thickness, forearm irons, locking hooks will all
Differ from years of production.
Those will all need to be fitted . I would suggest having briley make
Subgauge inserts for your pigeon barrels that you have.

Have him drop in some snap cap and measure the center to center distance. If it is the same as the spacing on your firing pins, then the barrels can be fitted to your receiver.
