    Marlin Camp 45

    What would be your thoughts on a pretty decent Marlin Camp 45 that is mounted in a Nice Boyds Laminated thumbhole stock? Has a cheap red dot reflex sight on it. I think it may also have a plastic stock with it.Receiver finish is nice. Couple small blemishes on the barrel but blue is pretty strong yet. I have not seen the plastic stock yet. Did Marlin ever have a Factory maybe folding stock as original equipment. I doubt it. They were all probably wood?

    I am asking as it belongs to a friend and he thinks he should get around 700.00 out of. I think that may be at least 100.00 overvalued. But what do you guys think. I may be able to get a pic next week..

    One thing that somewhat bothers me, is it is in .45 Auto. I am sure they are harder to find than the 9mms. But also considerably more expensive to feed though.Thanks

    Without the factory stock I'd go as high as $450.00 depending on condition... And yes factory was wood... Also a good reason to take up reloading...

    Thanks

    450.00 sounds a little low based on what we seen on GB and such for the .45 But maybe they just are oversold on there also. Non original stock probably does hurt quite a bit though. Though it is comfortable in your hands.

    I unfortunately just quit reloading and sold all my stuff within the last six months.

    I think I could sell a table full of them at the Wannenmacher Arms Show for $700. A lot of dealers price them at $1000 but they don’t sell.
    So I think $600 to $700 would be going rate for one in good condition.

    There is a reason it doesn't have the original stock, they were notorious for cracking with the camp 45. 700 is overpriced without the original stock.

    I do know the whereabouts of a original stock for around 50 Bucks. I am sure I could sell the Boyds off for more than that or atleast that much. But the Boyds does look fantastic on it though. Not original ,but aesthetically pleasing and very functional. Better than the original I am thinking in the that sense. But still not original I guess.

    In the condition you mentioned, I wouldn't pay $700 for it, but I imagine someone will.

    I agree an aftermarket stock is the way to go as it will hold up better, but for selling most people want the rifle in the original configuration. If I owned one I would remove the original stock and set it aside in case I wanted to sell it down the line. Make sure the buffer is replaced on these, A broken buffer is what causes the stocks to crack from the recoil.

    As with any camp rifle make sure the buffer is not destroyed before you buy the rifle
    I do not put any value on the extra stock. I think you would be hard-pressed to find someone that would give you $50 for it. If the Boyds stock is in good shape that is really all you need.

    For me $700 is high end of the spectrum but not unreasonable
