    Bolt Action 30-30 Question

    Does anyone know of anyone who is still manufacturing a bolt action rifle in 30-30 cal? I know about the Savage 340A, but I don't think that they are still making them.

    The reason I'm asking is that my wife would like a 30-30 for deer hunting, but has trouble with the lever actions. She is familiar with bolt actions and would prefer one of these, but I am having a hard time finding a new one.

    Thanks.

    Thumbs up Remington 788 In 30/30 - Nice Easy Shootin' Rifle

    There is a good looking one for sale on Gunbroker - (not quite new) asking price is $675 though. A bit steep.
    You might be able to get one for a bit less $$$ if you shop around.

    You could always look for a Savage model 170 pump 30-30. They can be found much cheaper.

    Don't trust anyone and always be aware of your surroundings. No one is as they seem.

    Or Go The Custom Route

    Find a custom rifle smith in TX & have a suitable new bolt action rifle rechambered for 30/30 - that would be a nice gift for the wife.

    Thanks for the idea. I could get a Remington Model 7, (which is a shorter gun, ideal for women, and she already has one) and take it to a gunsmith. I think this may end up being the answer.

    The reason she wants a 30-30 is that she can handle the recoil of my Marlin, and it has more knock-down power than her .243.

    Might give some thought to a Remington Model 7 in 308 and then load down a bit if you want less recoil -- though my wife uses one in 308 with factory ammo and says it's not bad.

    T/C might be worth a good look, heck I almost want one myself just so I could buy all kinds of barrels for it.
