D7500 - Lens mount too tight?

I recently bought a refurbished D7500 (from Nikon US) and it is amazing aside from one problem.  It seems to me like the lens mount is too tight - it takes more effort than I'm used to to twist it into place.  I notice that when twisting them on (or off) the lens hood will actually come loose rather than the lens sliding into place.  The same lenses are very easy to add/remove from my D5500.

So my question is, is this normal?  Being a somewhat higher-end unit than my D5500 are the tolerances closer on the mount?  As I mentioned it's a refurb so something like this is going to make me wonder.  To be clear the lens does not bind or feel like anything is bent, it just requires more force to twist on than I'm used to.

BTW - I do LOVE the camera.  It's an excellent option for someone like me that's looking for a little more than the D5xxx series has to offer.
