JA: Is there anything else important you think the gunsmith should know?

Thank you for your reply. In looking at the schematic here (http://i2.guns.ru/forums/icons/forum_pictures/007342/7342520.jpg), I'm not seeing a problem area where the issue that you describe could occur, if the gun was functioning normally. I think the gun should have a proper inspection by a gunsmith in order to determine where the problem lies. Can you tell me where you are located, please so that I can find a gunsmith for you?

Great!
I think that in your area, I like Dury's Gun Shop the best for gunsmithing services to take a look at your shotgun. It sounds like something that needs to be examined in person, and I think Dury's has the necessary experience to diagnose your situation. Here is their website page - https://www.durysguns.com/services/gunsmithing
