870 Express Express Magnum ??

OK...haven't posted in a while. Mostly reading and lurnking, but I need a question answered:

I have owned 870's in the past, but for the life of me I can not remember the difference between an 870 Express, and an 870 Express Magnum!!
Here is what I think:

870 Express will reliably shoot and eject 2 3/4" and 3" loads, providing the barrel is stamped accordingly.
The Express Magnum will handle the larger 3.5 shells, again with the barrel caveat

I just found a decent looking Express (no "Express Magnum" stamped on the receiver...only "Express) for $200.00! The gun needs a little Kroil on the receiver, and the camo tape pulled off the barrel, but I think it is worth every penny.
