According to their website Henry has come out with a new lever gun in .45-70 with a steel reciever. According to the web site it can handle all the differant .45-70 loads including the heavy ones. Any one seen one in a store yet?

I've recently become interested in the 45-70 caliber. While shopping around I noticed that marlin offers the model 1895 in 45-70 in a few different barrell lengths. The rate of twist for all is 1:20.
I am wondering what if any difference in accuracy I should expect say between a 18.5'' barrell...
