The West obviously...

If you move the CG back far enough, you can put it down at your feet with a little practice.

I would go witha West,

I've looked at installing a Rossi in my Magnum but I would have to modify the nose too much to get it to fit. With a west it's a tight fit but at least it fits

West 50 - one heck of an engine, and fairly light weight.

How far back can you set CG as you suggest?
