you got the old Encore Barrels prior to Smith & Wesson... Then you have the S & W barrels.. then there is also the Weather Guard barrels...and the Pre and Post S & W Stainless... I have yet to ever buy the weather guard barrels.. Looking at all the barrels? Do you Encore Hunters like the Weather Guard type and why/ The Stainless and why? Would the older pre Smith & Wesson barrels be worth more than the Post T/C now S & W barrels?
