Some years ago, Winchester made a takedown Model 70 in various calibers. I don't know if it's still in production - anyone know? I'm sure you could find one on the used gun market if you shop around.

It's not fast to disassemble/reassemble, but with a carbine length barrel and perhaps a lightened stock, it should make a fairly small package.
I think you're talking about some custom work though.

Sauer 202 comes apart (barrel is clamped and buttstock comes off receiver) - more than the NEF, but far less than the HS. More than a Sauer but still less than the HS is the Blaser 93. Another option would be the Browning BLR (lever gun); remove the buttstock and you have a substantially shorter package to carry.

Don't shoot me for this... but the M1A/M14 comes apart quick and easy and, broken down, is fairly compact.
