I believe it's actually a copy of the Winchester 1866 Yellowboy built in 1966 hence the Centennial moniker. The Winchester 1866 was a improved Henry design with the side feed magazine and a wood handguard. A little over 102,000 of these were made in 1966 and they are fine weapons. I'm pretty sure the 1894 model is a different design basically John Brownings greatly improved version of the original lever actions.
