Where does this forum discuss the Camp Carbines? I disassembled the trigger group of my Camp 45 and reassembled it. There was a trick to it.

Major trick to that is the great joy at just having one of the Camp Carbines. I had to get an El Cheapo Hipoint 995 to have an inexpensive trunk carbine. Boy they are fun. Sure would like to have a Camp 45.. They don't show up often, do they?

I think Marlin should start producing them again

I had never heard of the Marlin Camp Carbines until this summer . Saw one for sale in our local swap sheet , a 45 :cool:
Cruising the innernets looking for pictures , I just saw this and now have a question.
Does the Camp 45 take standard 1911 magazines ?

I think they'd have a hit on their hands if they made them again in 9 m/m or maybe .40 S&W that accepted Glock magazines. They already have both a police and civvie market in place for such a carbine.

I believe the camp 9's and 45's each used a common magazine from the time frame . I don't recall what the 9 was , but I guess there are a bunch out there. ;)
The 1911 is a classic . Awesome idea to make a rifle / handgun combo that interchanges magazines :cool:

Ruger is totally different...

The Camp series included the Marlin 9, 45, and 922M.
All share the same buffer & stock, and a few other minor parts...
Boyd's recently came out with a new replacement series of stocks,
www.boydsgunstocks.com/SearchResults.asp?searching=Y&sort=9&brand=MARLIN+CAMP+9&show=24

Mags from a S&W 5906 and a few others work for the 9mm :)

For the 922M, mags from the other .22WMR bolt-actions fit, but must have a slot cut in them for the mag release...
which is different than ANY other Marlin ever made...

Seems like the best place to say hello and mention my beloved Camp 9 Carbine. I've had it for a little over four years now. I love it. I get away to the mountains quite a bit and this rifle goes with me all the time. Here are some photos of mine.









Might I suggest to anyone who gets one, check the Buffer Pad (most likely disintegrated) and, replace your 16 lb factory Recoil Spring with a 21 LB from BlackJack.

By the way.. thanks for having me.
