Default Twist rate on 44 mag ?

Just talked with a gal @ Henry's tech support . She told me the BBS in 44mag is being changed from 1 in 38 to 1 in 20 & that the SS are 1 in 20 . You look on Henry's website and it states 1 in 20 . Does anyone know the truth ?

When the single shots were released they were the only 44 mag Henry offered with the of 1:20" twist, so it's not surprising they're switching to 1:20" for other rifles.
