question for the Encore / G2 Contender hunters

Can someone tell me the actual difference between the G2 contender and the Encore. I see both can be used as pistol, rifle, or muzzleloader. Is one better than the other, are barrels and accessories more readily available for one than the other? It seems the barrels may be interchangable from one to the other, are the stocks also interchangable?

I have had a handi rifle in 270 for years, Its been a great gun. I recently purchased a ss encore muzzleloader and am exploring my options of rifle barrels and toying with maybe converting it to a pistol. Thats where the confusion came in, when Contenders and G2's, and Pro hunters were thrown into the works. But that artical you posted clears things up nicley, thanks again. Do you know of a souce of used barrels and accessories? Ebay no longer sells barrels, but I figure there has to be a site where Encore shooters trade and sell there toys they no longer have use for.
