you dont have to think about choice on this one, the t/c is the wway to go as the options you have with it are fantastic. one gun and who knows how many different bbls you will have. Go T/C

yeah i was leaning more towards the t/c because of the selection of barrels,and the t/c doesnt have to be sent to the factory to be fitted with barrels either.

I would go with the g2 or encore, but it depends on what you want to use it for.  The Handi Rifles are an incredible value if you just want a knock around gun you don't have to worry about.  The versatility of the TC's cant be beat.

well im looking for versatility, what i mean by this is having multiple calibers without having to own a gazillion rifles. i love to handload  so i would like to have more cartridges to shoot and reload( i only have a 30-06 & 30-30) and if i want a new caliber to play with it will cost alot less than buying a complete rig(rifle,scope,bases) with these single shots im only out  cost of barrel and scope.plus (rings&bases)

I see that the Handi Rifle is now available in .500 S&W Magnum.  Now that would be cool.

I have nothing but good things to say about the encore.It fits well and shoots excellent.I started using it only as a muzzleloader and loved it so much that I'm now buying other barrel's to use for my other hunting applications.You won't be disappointed.

Happy124, you will be very happy with the Encore. I am with mine, but they are addicting because you keep wanting more and different barrels.

 Another thing to conceder is if you want to use this gun as a hand gun (pistol) it might be better to buy the hand gun frame. The frames are the exact same on either the pistol or the long gun, but something about the law states that you can change the pistol to the rifle but not the rifle to the pistol. But then you would need to buy the stock, forearm and barrel.

 Either why you will be pleased with the Encore
