I'm glad you are going that route, and hope they stick with their quote.

Please let us know when you get it back!

I have the same problem with my 1100 12 gauge. The barrel won't budge. I have to use a hard rubber hammer and tap the gas chamber to get it to move. Then I have to use the same hammer to get the barrel back on. I've cleaned and cleaned and cleaned, as well as using oiled 0000 steel wool to polish the barrel tang and inside the receiver. The barrel tang inserts easily, but as soon as the round portion of the barrel where the extractor cut is enters the receiver, the barrel jams. It won't go in another 1/4 inch without using the hammer. Having a tight barrel isn't that much of a problem unless you have to field strip it to fix a jam. I may also have to send it to Remington to get it fixed. I have a 1100 LT20 and that barrel goes on and off easily. Just something out of tolerance in the 12 gauge gun I guess.
