I bought a Chiappa Takedown Mare's Leg in .44 Mag with a 12" octagonal barrel for a little over $1000.
I didn't get a Ranch Hand because they don't have a Takedown version.
I put a Picatinny rail on the 12" barrel and mounted a Bushnell 2-6x33mm pistol scope on Warne QD mounts on the rail.
The iron sights can be used with the scope dismounted.
I found a nylon pile boot for a golf club that fits over the stump of the Mare's Leg and the cleft in the boot allows the finger lever to properly bottom out on the stock.
The thick nylon pile boot makes a comfortable recoil pad that allows me to tuck the stump under my chin and sight through the scope for 1 1/2" groups with the 225 grain .44 Mag LeveRevolution factory ammo while still retaining my full complement of teeth.
