Though no expect in the early Browning designed receivers, I would expect vent ribbed or plain(smooth) barrels would fit. I don`t remember any cut out in any receiver "semi-auto" to specifically fit vent ribs. Best I can do at this time.

Yes they will. They will even interchange from a Belgium Broning to a Jap browning.
In 49 states ignorance is a crime. In the other one it is bliss.
