Dear forummembers: I want "to save" my 1943 Inland more for the future so the question is: are there bolt action rifles for sale who use the .30 M1 carbine ammo ? I want to use it ( equipped with a scope ) for longer distance. Best regards from Johannis. ( the Netherlands ).

I'm not aware of any boltguns that shoot the .30 carbine, but I'm sure there must be some out there. I just have no idea who would make it.

Did you say you were from the Netherlands? My father was there during WWII. He came in on a glider during Market Garden.

Then he's probably seen quite a bit of action (and misery too, I suppose). If he's still around tell him this Dutchman also says "Thank you!" and will buy him a drink if he's in town again.

Back on topic: apparently a company in the UK called Armalon is doing Lee-Enfield carbine conversions in .30 Carbine. I've never heard of anyone who owns such a rifle over here in Holland, though. Here's a web page: You must be logged in to see this link. with more info.

Cheers (en succes met je zoektocht! ),

No prob!

I'm curious though: why specifically a .30 carbine bolt action rifle, when there are plenty of other options available that are probably a lot cheaper too?

Cheers,
F.

Frank, as you know the most shooting clubs in the Netherlands allow the .22 Long Rifle and the .30 M1 ( KNSA rules ) for the 50 meter distance ( exept the clubs who have a environmantel license for big calibers ) so to do some "precise shooting" in our club where .30 M1 is the maximum I want to have a rifle which makes this possible. I will equip such a rifle with a scope, on teh other hand we have a lot of clubmembers who fill their own cartridges so the ammo price is pretty low on this way. Best regards from Johannis.

I see your point. I'm with one of the Big Caliber clubs myself and therefore sometimes forget that not all clubs have a range that allows full power rifles. Thanks for the explanation.

I would assume you could remove the gas piston and nut and replace it with a plug, 1/2"x32
That should make it a single shot, hand operated. Jim B. Any thoughts?

Right you are war eagle. I've done it. I must admit it was on accident. I didn't plug the gas port. I just forgot to put the piston and nut in once and it operated as a single shot.

The only real problem with not putting a plug in the gas chamber is that the carbon builds up on the inside of the stock. Since the gas is hitting the inside of the slide, gas cutting of the wood can't happen.

Marlin at one time made their model 63 Levermatic in .30 carbine from 1966 to 1969. It was a short throw level action that held four rounds in the magazine. Not a bolt but they do show up once in awhile. I don't know if they were available in Europe at any time but a look for it can't hurt and who knows one might appear. Just a thought on my part.

Interesting note on the Marlin. Lever actions are somewhat rare over here (in The Netherlands that is). I wonder if the topic starter ever got around to getting his bolt action 30Carb...

Cheers,
Frank.

The Frankfort Armory had at least one Winchester Model 70 made up in 30M1. I have seen it offered online for I believe 14,500.00

I would want a LOT of verification on that one before I would even think about bidding on it.

Nice rifle but the one selling it is about $300 over priced on a new in the box would be. This one has light use and a replaced bullseye on it. At most a $400 rifle.
