Henry Big Boy vs Carbine
 
Iím looking to get a lever action 44 mag, but Iím torn between the Big Boy and the Carbine versions.

For anybody that owns or has shot them, is there a big difference in accuracy between them? I want to stick with the iron sights, so realistically I wouldnít be shooting much over 100yds.

Iíve tried searching the forum and online, but I canít find much if anything talking about accuracy between the two versions.

Any real world experiences anyone can share?

Also, Happy Thanksgiving yíall!

The carbine has a 16.5 inch barrel
The BB a 20 inch
1lbs weight difference
I personally like a longer sight plane and balance
We had a .41 mag carbine

The difference in accuracy would probably only be in the shooter. The sights being farther apart might make a difference but I doubt it.

Really like my Big Boy .41 mag with the 20".
I would look down each if you could to see how your eyes like the sights.

I didn't get a chance to look at them in person since I can't find any around me, but I ended up ordering the carbine online. I'm planning on sticking with the irons sights, so I assume that other than sight picture the 3.5" difference in barrel length shouldn't make a whole lot of difference for 100yd and under shots.
