The host rifle, if there was one for this rifle was not an original Henry rifle, nor a Uberti reproduction either, based on the construction of the barrel/magazine. The magazines on these two HENRY rifles were fabricated from solid bar stock, bored out and rifled for the barrel and then the magazine tube was first routed out, and then forged around a mandrel into a split tube. Then final machining was done to the exterior profile. This was reported to be one of the more significant challenges that Uberti had when he began developement of his reproduction rifle back in the 1960's.
The OP's rifle has an octagon barrel with a slotted magazine tube sweated onto the barrel with two filler strips on each side as can be seen in two of his earlier photos. This construction is similar to the construction of the barrels on a double barrel shotgun rotated 90 deg.s, but not a HENRY rifle which is a solid one piece construction.

I do think that the OP's rifle is definately cool, and I admire the thought and skill that went into constructing this curosity:-)

Do the 2nd and 3rd model 1890 receivers share the same width?

Thanks!

If it were made from a 2nd Model receiver it would have to be thinner, especially in the front, to get the steps in the receiver so it looks like a Henry it would have to be milled down and the rear part would probably need to be taken down slightly to smooth out any welds where pieces were added, which I think was how the bottom and rear were extended for the Henry look - it's being thinner just makes me more convinced it started out as a standard receiver.

With all of the alterations/modifications that it has endured, it most likely is thinner than it originally was.
