You might want to read these before you do that! They are scanned pages of a letter from the Technology Branch of the BATF explaining that it is not legal to convert an Encore or Contender rifle (came from the factory with a buttstock) into a pistol. It is legal to convert a TC that started out life as a pistol into a rifle, just can't go from factory rifle to pistol. Same thing with the XP-100....no problem converting an XP into a rifle, but you can't buy a Remington rifle and make a pistol out of it.
