    Well , I seen this one the other day in a pawn shop.

    I cant tell if its ever been fired , or even handled. Its 100%.

    As I have said before....when I lose sleep over a gun, it usually ends up coming home with me, if it don't leave before I get back to it.

    So I went back today and just walked up the owner , told what Id give , (done my homework) and was prepared to negotiate up a little... and he said "man your killing me"....he always says that. He knows me well.

    He says "I'm closing in 30 minutes, lay the money down and get it outta here"

    I was smiling from ear to ear.
    I been wanting one of these for a long time, try finding a used one, (gunbroker , etc,) they are hard to find.

    So I brought this one home...with plans for many barrels and grips.

    So I guess you can use pistol barrels and a pistol grip, then it's a pistol?
    Best I can remember that was something you could do with them way back when they came out with em.

    If so you can sell the 'few' other guns you own.....
    Congrats on the new toy. Should be fun. :D
    Will the early pistol barrels fit?

    Yes ....all Encore barrels will fit.
    Yes... all Encore grips will fill.

    That's the beauty of it, quick ,easy interchangeability.
    (jeez I had to take a break typing that word ;):))

    Nice, Jim. One thing - the Encore is probably banned in Californica, for something or other.

    Over 30 years ago I had a T/C pistol.
    Back then Hollywood liked to use them when they showed a 'professional hit man' bad guy sitting in wait to do a hit.
    He could always make 100+ yd shots resting it on his arm. :cheesy:
    Oops, maybe shouldn't reminded them.......
