Most sporting barrels are ported and offered at a longer length than the field models. Some have fancier engraving, fancier wood, adjustible combs and length of pull adjustments.

Besides being about .7 lbs heavier and having a wider rib, what exactly is different about the "sporting" o/u than the "field" o/u?
:?
The price. :D

at least those i have picked up, definately had a higher poi than did a field, but, i'm so used to shooting a trapgun at sporting, a field gun........simply won't work.....way too low

you might also get a better grade of wood, maybe a palm swell if that matters. they also usually come with extended chokes

Some will come with several trigger shoes or a trigger group. Usually a better sight like a hi-viz. Main thing that makes me buy a sport model is the longer barrels. I like long barrels. 8)

The stock dimensions are often different as well. Also, the pistol grip can be different. A field 391 has a slim grip compared to a target 391.
