Customer Question

I recently bought a refurbished Win Mod 42, 28", skeet. It isn't the only 42 I own so I am familiar with them.
The gun is very difficult to field strip, the mag tube is tight and the thread on the bbl and receiver are very tight and hard to turn to release the bbl from the receiver.
I have sent it back to the dealer I bought it from and he said he fixed it! However it is still too tight and I have lost confidence in his gun smith for a gun of this quality and value.
Can you tell me how to solve the issue or can you point me towards a reputable repair site?
Thank you, ***** *****
