The .327 Federal cartridge offers similar performance to the .30 carbine and they do chamber some lever action rifles in .327 Federal as well as some handguns too.

You could rebarrel a CZ 550 into .30 Carbine. The .22 Hornet version of the CZ 550 would be a good candidate as you would need to do very little to get it working. Now then there have been some people who built .30 carbine bolt action rifles from some of the old military bolt actions. So it can be done.

But as mentioned there just is no demand or market for .30 carbine guns.

OH YEAH, one thought i just had was you could use a chamber insert for .30 carbine in a bolt action rifle. They make them in several calibers like .30-06, .308Win, etc.
