Actually, that's wrong.
The Magnum and older non-Magnum receivers are exactly the same, including the length of the ejection port.
The only difference between them is that the Magnum receiver is fitted with a longer, 3" Magnum size ejector, and the Magnum has a serial that ends with an "M".

In fact, most good gunsmiths who have the correct staking tools can replace a non-Magnum ejector with a Magnum length ejector and the gun then shoot up to 3" shells.
As example, Wilson/Scattergun offers a "Remington Steal" package in which they refinish and re-stock the gun and convert it to a Magnum receiver by installing the longer ejector and lengthening the chamber.
