I've had one (used) in 22 Hornet since the mid 60s. Mine has a sheet metal band around the barrel that attaches thru the bottom of the stock fore end. So no, the barrel would not be "floated".
Never any accuracy problems with mine, although the "side mount" system for scoping them, is kinda goofy and prone to issues. Mine came with a Weaver K2.5 on it, shot pretty well. Got a different ring mount (the top half) so I could use a more powerful scope and wound up just putting the K2.5 back on. Could never get it to shoot consistent groups with the bigger scope.
Been so long since I've seen one in 30-30, no idea if they also have that barrel band? Although a cousin has a much newer one in 222 and I don't recall it having the band.
>Just looked on Gunbroker and they have them listed in 222, 225 and 30-30. All shown in the pics, have the same barrel band mine does.
