RE: Is the Encore rifle frame the same as the pistol frame?
Yes - it is the same frame. The only difference is the butt stock vs the pistol grip and the forearms are different for the rifle barrels. But remember, to comply with BATF regs you cannot put a barrel less than 16" on the frame with the butt stock installed. If you already have an Encore pistol, all you need to buy is the butt stock, forearm, and rifle barrel of your choice of caliber.
PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO THE RISING COST IN AMMO PRICES I WILL NO LONGER BE FIRING A WARNING SHOT.
