Does anyone know the difference between

From Remington:
MODEL 870™ EXPRESS® SUPER MAGNUM SYNTHETIC
OVERVIEW:
For those looking for that "one shotgun to do it all," you'd be hard pressed to find a more affordable all-purpose option. Capable of digesting 2 3/4, 3, and 3 1/2-inch 12-gauge shells without a hiccup, the Model 870 Express Super Magnum Synthetic is as at home in the dove field as it is in the duck blind or on the skeet field. Available with either a 26 or 28-inch vent rib barrel with a Modified Rem™ Choke, this pump-action shotgun features a non-glare matte finish on all exterior metalwork and an all-weather black synthetic stock and fore-end.
KEY FEATURES:
• Receiver milled from a solid billet of steel for strength and durability
• Twin action bars ensure smooth, reliable non-binding action
• Legendary pointability and accuracy
• Rem™ Choke vent rib barrel
• Offered in 12-gauge
MODEL 870™ EXPRESS® SUPER MAGNUM
OVERVIEW:
This is no standard Model 870 Express. Far from it. Capable of handling everything from light 2 3/4-inch loads to heavy 3 1/2-inch magnums interchangeably, this shotgun is unrivaled in versatility and value. No other pump gun even comes close.
Available with non-reflective matte-finish metalwork and flat-finish hardwood stock and fore-end, the Model 870 Express Super Magnum features a 28-inch vent-rib barrel with Modified Rem™ Choke.
KEY FEATURES:
• Receiver milled from a solid billet of steel for strength and durability
• Twin action bars ensure smooth, reliable non-binding action
• Legendary pointability and accuracy
• Rem™ Choke vent rib barrel
• Offered in 12 gauge
If you look them up on Davidsons Gun Search the only difference appears to be the stock. Prices are the same.

I don't know. It says that the one with the wood stock has non-reflective matte-finish metalwork
and the one with synthetic stock has non-glare matte finish on all exterior metalwork. Do you think that the barrels
has differences?

These are both 870 Express models...the finish will be the same. "Non-glare" and "Non-reflective" are two marketing phrases that mean the same thing. They will both be non-glare/reflective matte finish. To turn a 870 Express SM into an 870 Express SM Synthetic, all you really need to do is remove the wood/wood laminate stock and replace it with a synthetic stock. Basically, they are the exact same gun- only difference is the stock, which Remington leaves up to you based on your preference for wood or polymer.
