Default Encore Rifles

Is there some kind of advantage to encore rifles where you can switch out the barrel and use alot of different calibers?

That Is the advantage. You own 1 firearm but it can be a pistol or a carbine and it can also be a varmint gun or a big game gun.
I have an old style Contender and I can get barrels for it that range from .17 caliber all the way up to the potent .375 JDJ as well as calibers like .223, .22 .30-30, .45-70 ETC. All of those are available in carbine and pistol barrels in lengths of 10"-24".
The Encore will allow you to buy black powder barrels for it as well as a wide assortment of center fire rifle cartridges-No rimfire. These are also available in pistol and carbine lengths.
It is my understanding that if you buy a Contender, G2 Contender or Encore you should buy them in the pistol configuration so that they can legally be changed into the carbine variation by simply changing stocks and barrels. Supposedly, if you purchase one in the carbine configuration then you have to leave it as a carbine
