Like Griz said. It's either an 1866 Winchester or a clone of one. The stock is homemade and the forearm is a replacement since the barrel band is in the wrong place.
I'd bet it's an Italian made copy that's been "defarbed" as they call it if it has no markings on it. It should at least have a serial number on it, if that was removed.... well lets just hope it hasn't.

I thought it looked like some one put the front of a modern Win 94 on a Henry...........
The 1866 Yellow Boy rifles had a full length octagon barrel, this is supposed to be a '66 saddle ring carbine. Carbines had shorter round barrels. Similar to the barrels on a '94 carbine. 1894 rifles had full length octagon barrels back in 1894, they haven't made the '94 in rifle length in a heck of a long time except for a few special limited edition commemoratives.
