Correct. The Crosman shotty is a clone of the TM design internally. The externals on our model is clear, although black is available in the US. And as I said earlier in this thread, performance-wise, I really don't see a whole lot of difference between the TM and Crosman. In terms of durability, I would trust the TM as it's ABS plastic is a lot more durable than the brittle clear stuff.
And just to point out, it's pretty hard to compare how bad a clearsoft gun is compared to the 'real deal' if you have no experience with the higher end model in the first place.
