    If you want it as a collector item, then go ahead.

    For a shooter, I would go with the new Ruger. Parts will be a lot easier to get.

    Had a Camp 9 and sold it for a Ruger PC9. Parts would break and they are hard to work on. That however, is a good price for one. Make sure it has the heavier spring and a buffer. If the bridge breaks its a bear to fix.

    Almost all of the parts are for sale at Numrich....or I can get on Ebay.
    I took my Camp 9 out yesterday ,put 300 rounds down range at the steel gong target. Everyone at the gun club was surprised that I could hit the gong at 100 yards with iron sights and a 161/2 inch barell. No problem! I said. alternating between 50 & 100 yard targets all day. Love the 9MM.

    I bought mine new 30 years ago and I love it. Paid around $169. I wish Marlin still made them, but for the money the Ruger is a great option.

    Lots of new pistol caliber carbines out there now. Big surge in competitions geared for them. Some of the new carbines are Very good and dependable with easily available 20 and 30+ round magazines...
    I like it. I love it. Can't get enough of it.

    I have been looking at Camp 9 but never pulled the trigger on one. People wanted too much for a mediocre gun. I may go the Ruger PC9 route. I have my 44-40 now so I may not even want to go with a 9mm rifle.

    $500.00 is cheap. Buy it shoot it and if you don't like it sell and get something else. Also the Ruger cost more

    Agree! The Ruger PCC seems to be well made, an excellent value and 9mm is affordable & super fun to shoot.

    I have the hi pointe carbine and like it a lot - its a fun gun and a pretty good home defense or camp gun....the hi pointe is way cheaper....not pretty but its a hoot and a half

    The Camp 9 is a lot fun and looks like a 22LR. That said, They offer no advantage over the Ruger PC9. I have one and $500 does sound like a good price based on your description. The only advantage I see is that it is a "wolf in sheep's clothing".
