    First of, yes you need a license for it. It's a firearm, and you must have a license for every and all calibers you own in situations where it's a switch barrel system.

    As for would it work, I have no idea. Someone with a better understanding of air rifles might be able to answer you in regard to that. If it's anything like a propellant based firearm you might have issues with bolt, chamber, etc.

    Of course I'm assuming you don't mean an actual 30cal, propellant based cartridge, barrel. Cos that'd be mad. Fun to see, but fecking nuts.
