    Greetings from Norway

    Hello everybody!

    My name is Jørn Andre and i live in Norway.
    I want to share my gratitude for this forum, especially the Camp Carbine section!
    It is really nice to have this forum to read and learn from.

    I have borrowed my father in law's Camp 9 for some time and now we have done the paperwiork so it is now officially mine

    A bit about my Camp 9 and the modifications i have done with it.
    My brother in law shot the original barrel to pieces after a misfire from som old military ammo.
    My father in law had the barrel changed to a brand new match-grade heavy barrel.

    I ordered 21 and 16lb Recoilsprings, plenty of blue recoil buffers and a EGW Picatinny for Marlin 336.
    My screwholes had correct space between the single holes in the pair, but the pairs them selves were too close.
    I have installed the 21lb spring and buffer, waiting for range time now to test the new spring.
    I had my gunsmith, who also owns a Camp 9, to drill and tap new holes and fit the picatinny rail.
    At the same time i had him do a trigger job since the pull weight were to heavy and it had a long drag. Now it's crisp and have no drag
    I mounted a Shirestine Gold 2-7x32 in QRW rings. Optical as clear as a Leupold (I normally do not use low-end scopes, but I will not use this carbine in the dusk or dawn. I have other rifles for that)
    The barrel is threaded and my gunsmith made a converter from M14x1,5 to M15x1 threads so i could fit my A-TEC Maxim Silencer in .375 caliber.
    (A-TEC Silencers are Norwegian made and are module based with stainless steel baffle inserts. Check out A-TEC AS - silencers for info about them)

    The only thing i miss to get this carbine complete is the Choate retractable stock that Midway sells.
    In the Norwegian Midway store cannot tell me if they ever will get this stock on the Norwegian market.
    (They say that they get a Container from Midway USA every once and a while and if it is there they can sell it. If not just wait for the next one they say..)

    In the future when my economy allows it i want a Docter Sight III Red Dot on it as well

    I will post some pictures when i have the time
    (I a father to two sons, 6 months and 2,5 yrs, so time alone for hobbies is rare

    Keep up the good work guys
