Bobby, We do it all the time. You might get lucky and have a set that just snaps on but more than likely, a little fitting will be in order. I personally like 32" barrels so I have 6 or 7 hammer guns that have 32" barrels. I even just recently put on a set of 32" vent rib barrels on a hammer gun that had 30" damascus barrels. I had been shooting that gun in past years until I was fooling around one night with a wall thickness gauge and found a pretty deep pit in one tube. Although you could not see it looking down the barrel, that gauge found it. To say the least, I was shocked. At that time, my friend John Liles installed a set of 32" orphaned barrels on the gun for me.
