Wildcat question, NOT the Lex!

What is the difference between the armament of the FM-2 and the F4F-4? Obviously the outer gun is deleted in the FM-2, but are the two inner guns the same? I have the In Action book and Kinzey's In Detail, but the differences are not clear. The gun hatches and ejection ports seem the same, yet one gun sticks out further. Are they mounted differently inside or does the FM-2 have a slightly longer barrel?
