Here's a look at some of the new Taurus revolving rifles and shotguns. What's interesting is that Taurus incorporated protective shields on both sides of the cylinder to effectively protect the shooter's arms from the blast coming out of the cylinder gap. That's an improvement over antique designs that could enhance their use for black powder related shooting.
The design of the lever action Circuit Judge looks like it's really extra special!

The .410/.45 Long Colt Circuit Judge is available with either a smoothbore or a rifled barrel:

I wonder if their .410 mares leg is also available with a rifled barrel in 45 colt?
I would love to have it where it would have a rifled barrel and chamber both the .410 or the 45 colt. Now THAT I would buy. I can't tell from the photo, it might just be the glare, but that Mare's leg kind of looks like a stainless or nickel model. But it could just be bright glare on a blue one. If it is in stainless or nickel....Then I'm definitely in!

The .410 mares leg does have a rifled barrel but it doesn't chamber the .45 Long Colt.
But there's 2 other mares leg rifles in .45 Long Colt and .44 Magnum.
