other .30 carbine guns

The Dominican Republic manufactured the caliber .30 Cristobal Model 2 Automatic Carbine with technical assistance from Pietro Beretta it resembles the Beretta Model 38 submachine gun. Page 417 Small Arms of The World.

two I know

Marlin made a lever rifle called the Levermatic in .30 carbine, long discontinued.

There was an auto pistol, the Kimball, that did not last long either.

The famous/infamous AMT AutoMag III was made in 30 Carbine.

30 Carbine is kind of a cult cartridge. Everyone has an idea of its capabilities and limitations, but some folks are just in love with it.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?

I have the common ones...

30 Carbine - Carbine
AMT Automag -3
Contender barrel

the Automag 3 is actually even more fun than the revolver, even though I'm pretty much a revolver guy

Three or four years ago, US Firearms (USFA) made a limited run of their Single Action line commemorating the .30 Carbine.

There was a semi-automatic .30 Carbine chambered pistol called the Kimball. It was produced in small numbers in the late 1950's, looked somewhat like a High Standard pistol, and it was, by all accounts, not a pistol that is safe for shooting.

Aww heck, I see bamaranger mentioned it first. Interesting pistol, but not for shooting.

Taurus made a double action revolver called the Raging Thirty -- but I've not yet actually seen one of these and I've often wondered if it was actually produced or just advertised. I think it would be fun.

I've got a Ruger Blackhawk.
Attention Brass rats and other reloaders: I really need .327 Federal Magnum brass, no lot size too small. Tell me what caliber you need and I'll see what I have to swap. PM me and we'll discuss.

I'm looking for a Marlin 62 after I get a few more things...

also an Iver-Johnson Enforcer in .30 and the MAGAL or a HEZI (Israeli) in .30 carbine

Hey, and don't forget the Excel X-30!!
While they lack decent mag capacity (10 rounds was the last I saw), its got hope...with a bigger mag
