Sort of, but different in that the Browning's steel "cover" is actually the serial numbered receiver and the barrel of the Browning mounts to that receiver.

In the Henry, the barrel does not mount to the cover because the inner frame of the Henry is the receiver.


I'd say the Browning receiver/frame layout is closer to the Winchester 9422 than to the Henry due to the barrel mounting.
