The fault of the Encore is really that by the time you pay for the barrel and optics you aren't that far off a dedicated bolt gun. If there was a way to easily use the same optic for each barrel and adjust the zero it might work better. Economically you don't end up ahead with the set-up and you really have LESS utility than dedicated guns.
With the dimension you add in bolt and magazine costs.

Of course, you could just donate to the Second Amendment Foundation
