Default Beretta S2 double trigger/ need gunsmith recommendation

My best friend Terry is a Beretta enthusiast, especially fond of older Berretta's. Loves his BL4s and has a very nice S2 (predecessor to the SO2, I believe) that he uses for Pheasant--a 12 ga OU sidelock with double triggers. It is now doubling when the back trigger is pulled first--but not when the front trigger is pulled first. Coles Gunsmithing in Fla who is supposed to be the Beretta gurus said they will not work on old Berettas. Got to believe there is someone out there who works on these, I mean we get our 100+ yr old Parkers worked on, this gun is probably from the 50's. He hasnt taken the sidelocks off himself, but is thinking of doing so. He is a very careful, meticulous person(airline pilot), but would rather hand the gun off to an expert.
Recommendations?

Rich Cole is a trained Beretta gunsmith. He worked on mine 15 years ago. I guess times have changed and he now has 3 shops. You may want to try J.J. Perodeau near Tulsa, OK..

Harold,
J.J. Perodeau has worked on several of my British shotguns and German combination/shotguns -all with double triggers.
He does excellent work.

Thanks all, Terry called JJ Perodeau, and he answered immeadiately. The gun will be shipped out Monday. I have a large cardboard box that I use to ship, that his hardcase will fit into, and dropping it off for him tomorrow.
It is really a nice gun, an engraved sidelock OU,with straight grip and double triggers, choked IC/IM, under 7 lbs, a great pheasant gun.
