I can't say for sure, but I'm guessing it was a Winchester Model '73 or '92.

Excellent guess! It was/is a Winchester mod '92 in .44-40

A demonstration and explanation of the modifications made to the original rifle here:

I just picked up a copy of Guns of the Old West the other day, and there is an article in it on the Riflemans 44-40. LSI is now producing a tribute copy of Chuck Conners legendary Winchester Model 92 rifle with, a price tag of $1,299.00. The Rifle is an Italian Made product of Chiappa firearms of Brescia Italy. (NOTE The screw through the lever that activates the trigger is non-operative.

Winchester Model '92 in .44-40. The Rifleman altered the lever with a bolt to make it fire faster when he worked the lever. Strange though, as the year listed, on the show, took place back in 1884, well before the year 1892 & before the '92 Winchester Rifle was manufactured. This is common with all old TV & movie Westerns.
