Correct and to further add it doesn't come with the adjustable shims as well, no hard gun case, and only 3 chokes instead of 5. Fine by me, as it saved me a good $400 off the M2 field. Same exact internals for the gun, without all the extra gimmicks.
As someone mentioned, if your worried about recoil (didn't affect me whatsoever and I was shooting a light twelve Browning A5 2 3/4" before this gun, and both are lightweight and not a lot of recoil, you can get a limbsaver pad or another stock butt insert. no need to worry about adjustable shims as long as you make sure the gun fits you b
