    Suppressed Marlin.45 Camp Carbine

    Got my friend to take his Suppressed .45 Camp Carbine out to the range yesterday. I had first shot it about 4 years ago and remembered what a hoot it was to fire. Sounds like shooting .22 BB caps out of a long barrel, just a clicking sound. I was surprised how far it flung the brass a good 35 feet and very sooty black on the empties. Don't know if the un -suppressed camp carbines do that. really fun to shoot though. It made my day.

    Ask your friend who did the conversion. Good information as suppressors are legal where I live. I wanted my Camp .45 as a home defense weapon and a suppressor would be really nice for inside use.

    My friends phone hasn't been working so i cant call or text him, but I sent him an e-mail asking about which shop in Texas did the work. The name of the place is stamped on the outside of the tube, but don't remember it. Will let you know when he gets back to me.

    O.K. The guys name that does the conversion is John Tibbets, of Tibbets America. I believe he is in Coleman, Texas. New website is : johnsguns.com . Old website is still up, the one my friend used when he had the work done a good 8 years ago: johnsguns.us/main.htm

    Went back out shooting today and my friend was letting his uncle shoot the suppressed camp .45. I wanted to do a short video with sound when he was firing, I know it sucks as his uncle took forever to get a couple rounds off, will do a better video next time. First round sounded louder (some noise as the round hits the steel spinner at 50 yards), I think the second shot he missed the steel.
