Do you mean are they mechanically identical or are you asking if they are as smooth as the originals?

Tricky question.
When my Miroku1886 45-90 was new, it seemed stiff compared to my well worn 1892 lever action. A friend that competes in Cowboy Action shooting volunteered to slick it up for 100 dollars.
After a couple go arounds with me testing it and giving it back to him, the action was very slick operating and the trigger pull weight reduced to 4 pounds like all my other hunting rifles.
That was several years ago and it is even better now than then. I loaned it to a friend to take to Africa and he was very pleased with the trigger - he says it is just right and knows just when to drop the hammer..
