I have looked into it and yes you can. It's a one time deal though. By that I mean you can convert a rifle to a handgun but you can not return it to rifle status. Also if you cut a rifle barrel in your modifications the firearm becomes prohibited and you have to have prohibited status on your PAL. If you put a custom barrel on it your firearm is only restricted. The problem you might run into is if you want to go to the USA with it. I'm told in the USA you can not convert a handgun into a rifle. If someone from the USA knows please let me know although it's too late for me now. I bought a TC Encore with 4 barrels and was going to convert it untill I found out I may not be able to go to the USA with it. I sold the action a month ago and have ordered a new action registered as a pistol.
