Yes, the TC has a .30 carbine barrel. Here is the link to the Midway listing:

Sorry I don't know about a bolt gun for that caliber.

No .30 carbine bolt actions exist that I've ever seen or heard about. However, an M1 carbine can be turned into a straight pull bolt action by removing the gas piston and replacing it with a solid plug. Said plug would have to be made as you can't buy one.

You could convert a CZ-527 to 30 carbine. I've seen a couple of CZ in 22/30 carbine wildcats.

not that its anyhelp to you but I recall seeing a sporterized chrome plated springfield 190A3 rebaralled to 30 carbine, so I would say most mauser style bolt actions can be rechambered to the catridge you desire, but its going to cost you. I am fairly certain no company currently manufactures a .30 carbine bolt action.

Doing some research, it looks like the your best bet would be to start with something in 22 hornet. Hornet has a case head of 0.350, compared to 0.360 for 30 carbine. You'd only have to open up the bolt face slightly. The rim thickness of a 30 carbine is only 0.050, versus 0.065 for the hornet, so that might prove slightly troublesome.

I'm not sure about magazine length.

Why you'd want a 30 carbine bolt gun is another matter, unless you have a few thousand round laying around. But whatever floats your boat.

I saw a Remington bolt action made in the early 50' in 30 carbine at the Bullet Trap in Plano, Texas about 4 or 5 months ago. I don't know if it is still there. They do exist though.

You can buy one of these http://www.odcmp.com/Rifles/misc.htm and have a stock built around it.
