950 SRAM Cassette

I just purchased a Fuji Newest and had the bicycle shop replace the Sunrace 11-25 cassette with a new SRAM 950 cassette 12-26 that I furnished.
My questions are: does the 950 cassette come with a cassette lockring?
I suspect the shop may have used the Sunrace cassette (11-25) lockring because the returned Sunrace cassette did not have a cassette lockring?
Is one of the differences between the 950 and the 970 cassettes is that the 970 comes with a lockring?
Thanks,
Gary

All SRAM cassettes come with a lock ring, as far as I know. Maybe they changed for '09, but that wouldn't make much sense. Campagnola is the only cassette maker that doesn't ever include a lockring.

Even Campy includes a lockring with their cassettes that start with an 11T cog. The lockring that comes with the hubs is too large in diameter for the 11T.

I just picked up a Campy Ultra-Drive 8-spd cassette. Has a lockring with it. As did my Miche 8-spd.

It does come with a ring.

If you are wondering what you have on, just look. The lockrings usually have the logo on it, etched or recessed or something. They may have simply misplaced either your old one of the new one or something. No matter what lockring you use, it doesn't really matter as long as it fits. Unless you are a weight weenie.

Just tell the shop they forgot to return the Sunrace lockring and ask if they can find one for you. You'll need the 11T lockring if you want to put the Sunrace cassette back on your wheel. (the 12T lockring usually interferes with the chain when used on an 11T cog)

Thanks for the advice.
When I picked up the bike, I had to go back to the repair/maintenance section of the shop and remind them they had not included the triple front derailleur in the returned take-off parts.
As part of the new bike sale, the salesman had agreed that uprade parts would be used in the build and at no labor cost to me. The new parts I brought for the upgrade were a compact double crankset, 12-26 cassette and a double front derailleur. The repair/maintenance employees were not all that happy with the deal made by the salesman and me.
The shop where I bought the bike and who did the work is a large, well known retailer.
Thanks,
Gary
