Mossberg 800BSM - What is it?

I have a Mossberg 800BSM.

I cannot find any information on what the "S" in the "BSM" designation means. All the research I have done leads to the same place... no where.

The 800BM was a 20" sporter barrel in .243 Winchester.

For my rifle;
800 was the model.
"B" was the chambering; .243 Winchester.
"M" is the 20" barrel.

So.. can anyone tell me what the "S" was, and how many of these rifles were produced?

I'm starting to wonder if I have a variant even more rare than the 800AM; which can sell for a nice chunk of change.

The "S" stands for "Scoped". It would have come as a combo with a scope.
