I have a 1969 Falconet in 12 gauge. I recently stumbled across a longer (28”) barrel Than my current 26” set on eBay and bought it at a great price. I liked the idea of having a second barrel set at a tighter choke pattern

I dropped the barrel onto my receiver and while I can get the barrel to close on the receiver, it’s tight and somewhat difficult to re-open. Additionally, The forend won’t latch.

I’m hesitant to mess with the receiver and foreend as I have a perfectly wonderful over under now. What I assume I need is some gunsmith work on the new barrels to get them to fit better on the receiver and forend.

Any thoughts or recommendations?
