no. the key to understanding a lot of nfa stuff is the term "readily adaptable". this means if you dont need tools to assemble the encore with the stock then it violates nfa sbr rules. it doesnt matter if the grip is kept and the stock is disposed of and not in your possession.
basically if that kit has the buttstock capable of just snapping in place without tools its readily adaptable. thats why ar15 owners cant possess a barreled upper less than 16" without also possessing either a registered full auto or a pistol lower.
same is true for shotguns with barrels less than 18" that dont need tools to change barrels. cant have a shortbarrel without a sbs reciever in possession.
my pinion is stay away from ideas or gear that ride the grey nfa line. better to just get a dedicated rifle than muck around the hazy edges of the nfa
