A while back i purchased from a friend a Encore 209X50 that had been rebarreled to .223. I want to hunt deer with the Ecore as a pistol as well. Are their any regulations or fees that need to be addressed before i do this? I checked with the local ATF and the officer said that he was vaguely familiar with the Encore but said that he didn't think that it would be a problem. Your oppinions appreciated.
