    Commercial guns chambered in 30 carbine, other than the m1 and its iterations

    Just stumbled upon the marlin 62, wich i did not know was chambered in 30 carbine, its got me thinking, what commercial guns where chambered in 30 carbine?

    AMT Automag pistol. Ruger should do a 77/.30 Carbine to see if it would sell.

    Experience is a wonderful thing - It lets you recognize a mistake, when you make it again.

    Some years ago I had a thirst for a Marlin lever model 62 in .30 carbine so bad it was almost funny. Then I finally found one in used condition. A better term for that particular rifle was as a decent shotgun!Robert

    Robert , that makes me wonder if a properly made bolt action would shoot well .

    And my Ruger Blackhawk is more accurate than my WW2-era Inland M1 carbine too!

    I've been without a Blackhawk for too long. I think I know what caliber I want this time.

    IMO if you want a revolver get the 327 Federal Magnum as its basically a rimmed 30 Carbine. My Henry 327 carbine lever may as well be a lever 30 carbine as well.

    Sorry yours was bad. I have one that is much more accurate than my M1 Carbine. The only problem with it was that it had a tight chamber. Some of the carbine handloads I have did not fit. After a lot of measuring, I found a few reloads were just over the maximum limit. I trimmed a bunch of brass, loaded it up, and had no problem at all with those reloads in the Marlin.

    I just found a picture of it in its latest configuration. Most of the time I had it, it had a Williams peepsight on it. It was more accurate than the M1 Carbine with the peepsight. Then someone gave me a set of scope bases for it when we were discussing the gun a few years back. I had an extra scope and rings around and they just happened to fit together. I have not shot it that much with the scope, but it is more accurate than it was with the peepsight.

    I’ve shot the BH in 30 Carbine and can attest to it’s intensity... that is one loud handgun, but it sure was fun to shoot!
    Been looking for one ever since, just can’t seem to get the gun and the money to meet at the same time.

    My Marlin 62 is amazingly accurate at 100 yards with PMC ammo which the previous owner
    had told me about before I bought it.

    I once bought a new Ruger Blackhawk in .30 carbine and an unfired round would repeatedly back
    out of one of the chambers in between shots which would jam up the action. It was very disappointing.
