From 2-Piper...

Via a long distance diagnosis that would indeed seem to be your problem, especially as the SN of the forend doesn't match. In fact it may have never been properly fit up. I just wanted to be sure you had not over tightened the ball screw before you started removing metal. I think the way I would proceed is to lay a strip of paper (ordinary printer paper should be good) between the action flat & barrel flat on each side. Bolt the gun, then adjust the screw to bring the barrels firmly against the breech, but no further. Don't be concerned if the lever is past center. If it will not firmly bolt the barrels the bolt needs work. After this begin fitting the forend, but personally I think I would remove the metal from the slot in the forend iron rather than on the bbl lug. Doing this work will be easier with the wood removed from the forend until you get it where it will snap on.

Thank you, Miller. I'll try that tomorrow - I shouldn't have to take much off the forend slot, maybe just a couple thousands of an inch.
I assume the strips of paper will act as a spacer to prevent over tightening the screw.

A double gun should theoretically close with the barrels tight against the breech & a .001"-.003" gap between the flats. 16lb paper measures about .0035" & 20lb about .004". If you lay a strip back close to the breech face, close & bolt the gun, then tighten the screw to give a firm contact, when you open it & take out the paper it should close about right. You can then fit the forend & be good to go.
