Default 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.
