was looking into a barrel for my Thompson Center ProHunter. I see they offer a barrels in .460 SM and .500SM. Would this combo be legal for use in IL firearm season? They both shoot a straight walled casing which is described as a legal round for a handgun in IL. Only this would be a breech loaded rifle? The only difference is the shoulder stock. Which you could install a folding stock on a handgun right?

Put a pistol grip on it and your good.  Folding stock still counts as a rifle stock.  I shoot a Contender in 45-70 with a 13” barrel.  For pistols it only has to be at least 4” long.  No max length.
