Default Made in the U.S. of A.

Besides the M1A and the redone Garands, are there any , .30 caliber rifles still made in the U.S. of A.that are not re-dos of the AR-15, AR-10 or Kalashnikov?

I see that Ruger now makes the rifle chambered for the .300 Blackout.
6.5 Creedmoor is latest greatest surpassing the Blackout for rag time, is it short enough for that rifle?

The Remington 750 is no longer made, and all the others are AR based.

Creed, no. Grendel, yes, but you'd have to go custom. With Ruger selling the RAR in 300BO now, magazines are more available for the Mini-300. 556 cases, 308 bullets. But the venerable mini-30 has been selling for over 40 years now. They made it in 6.8spc for a short run, but you asked for 30 cal.

I often wonder what drives the gun industry.
Europeans still make some old school style autos but here they are near all based on military black rifles.
Here is one that is unique:

The gun grabbers go more by appearance than anything yet the U.S. makes near nothing that is not of military appearance.
At least the Russians can put lipstick on a pig.



To the liberals image is symbolism over substance wins the day.
