is there any way you can find the previous owner of your tubes? find the gun and you got a chance of using them. no bbl or tube manufacturer is going to be bothered checking them for you. its too time consuming and theres a 50/50 chance it will be all in vain. and for what smittys are paid for by the hour, its not profitable! with that said, this is the problem: those tubes were fit to a gun. no two guns have the exact same inside measurements. metal was removed to fit those tubes. once removed from the parent gun, sliding them into another gun is DANGEROUS and no one here will ever say to do it. if so, i'd be surprised. now..the scientific approach. if you can find a bonified smitty to measure both bores at the breech, 1/2 way down the tubes, and where the tube muzzle ends in the bbl, see if they match up. if the tubes wont go in and are snug w/o any play at all, there may be enough metal left to make a tight fit. problem is all 3 areas must be tight. its a lot of work and in my opinion, not worth it. too bad you couldnt get a smitty to install expanding friction fits. much like the old savage 410ers. good luck!
