You gain a shoulder stock so it's better to shoot, but lose the pistol designation. With the state rule change last year it would probably just be considered a 'long gun'. No big deal, but if you have a CPL it means you lose a ability to carry it as a pistol if you had any desire to do so (e.g. cannot keep it in the vehicle as a 'truck gun').
Before 2013 you had some options for a shoulder stock to be considered a pistol.
