And imagine instead of the cylinder sliding out from the side, it used a Top Break setup to load,

You mean, a top break revolver similar to the Webley revolvers?

im not sure, maybe some older h&r revolvers. but my question is, how would you access the fully shrouded ejector rod when it breaks from the top?

Yes like the Webley revolvers, except I am looking for a full underlug and a more modern - stainless steel finish/grip

Uberti makes a top-break revolver, but it is not modern at all. Somebody would have to convince me that a revolver of that style would be an improvement over a side-loading wheelgun. If you want one for collecting, Webley is the antique of choice, I would say.

Top break revolvers eject all six cases when you open the revolver. The "rod" is cammed and operates automatically and is internal to the gun. Consequently there is no ejector rod in the usual sense, and there is no need for a lug or housing.
Nobody makes a modern top break revolver. The H&R .22 is an old design made with modern steel and it is double action, but it is made in .22 only. The Webley is the only DA that takes a serious round. But what you are looking for does not and has never existed.

You know my dad always wanted one of those H&R .22 top breaks. How much do they generally go for?
