What is involved in fitting a barrel to a receiver. I shoot a Blaser, and all the components seem to switch around flawlessly. On a Perazzi, if I want to put barrel A on receiver B, what is involved? Will barrel A then not fit back on receiver A? Is it the barrel that is modified, or is the receiver modified?

It is the barrel fitted to the receiver. It is done by smoking the barrels over a smudge pot and then removing metal from the contact areas. The late Jack Rowe, in his video on gunsmithing British SXS doubles, demonstrates the process. You'll likely end up with barrels that still only fit one receiver, unless you screw it up and end up with nothing fitting.

Why not ask Perazzi?

When Rich Cole fit some barrels on my Perazzi. He changed the locking block to fit the new barrels.

Perazzi provides gunsmiths with a special jig for filing the locking bolt to fit the barrels. It is likely then that fitting a different set of barrels will involve both the barrels and the locking bolt, unless you are lucky and can get away with just barrel fitting.
