Recoil pads, chokes, etc. can be changed but the Active Valve system and a willingness to point are advantages you can't just buy off the rack.

Instructor Brian Ash did an outstanding job of coaching our newcomer. His favorite shotgun was the $1179 Browning Silver Hunter Micro Midas. He said it offered the shooter a strong natural point that was easy to maintain and control throughout a variety of angles. We think this is an essential quality that cannot always be built in aftermarket.
Length of pull could be expanded to 13.25 inches by installing the supplied spacer. Note the thick rubber recoil pad.
Three spring-loaded fingers in the Browning's end cap ratcheted across a series of indents beneath the cap, locking it firmly into place.
Each shotgun locked down the forend and barrel over a sealed magazine tube, so we didn't have to struggle with compressing the magazine spring. But the Browning did require that the sleevebar spring be compressed so the pushrod was seated properly into the receiver.
Gas for Browning's Active Valve System was bled from the barrel through the barrel hoop.
