    Marlin camp 9 scope or not

    Afternoon guy's/gal's, The camp9 carbine i brought might have a scope on it soon.
    The scope is a 3x9-50ac, and i have a scope mount from my 1894 lever action.
    The mount will fit on the camp9.

    The question is, would the scope look good on the camp9?
    With scope, i can reach-out there where no man had gone before.
    I only have one eye, due to a accident. I also have a fake eye.
    So, a scope might be the ticket to see out there at 100 yards.
    I'm a retired ARMY MARKSMAN and i can still hit my targets..

    For us "Senior eyes" I scope when ever it fits (some rifles should just be open sights, M1 Carbine and Garand, Some lever actions and a pump or two). My Camp has a simple red dot, works fine for me. So I say scope and shoot until your cup runs over!!!!!!!

    I shoot with a bunch of veterans. Former Coast Guard my self. We all use scopes..........

    I put a Redfield 4X on my Camp 9 some years ago. Even longer ago, a Leupold M8-4X on my 1894 in .44 Mag. I shoot both out to a hundred yards or so, and can actually hit stuff. Looks, I don't know

    Rock, Nice Nickel camp 9. You should find a nickel Marlin Factory Magazine for it. As far as looks, who cares. What good is a tool you can't use if you can't see the target....... I hunt deer in the dense woods of Western Penna. where 60 yards is a long shot. A scope on a lever gun really doesn't help. Open sights is the way to go. I like your 44 mag.

    I install a Fastfire III on my Camp 45. The red dot made a big different in the fun factor.

    I knew they existed, but I'd never seen a nickel camp carbine either. Must be rare. I wish I had bought a warehouse full of these back in the 80/90's at $280 a pop, I could sell them for 3 times that today. I'd be RICH!

    NO you would not! You’d just have wasted the money on guns....

    I know where you're coming from, but just for reference, that $280 invested in S&P 500 stocks in 1980 would be worth $17,550 today. Kinda makes one wish they'd put aside that extra "couple bucks" back then!

    I think you will find the Camp 9 very accurate at 100 yards with the scope. Mine were with certain loads.
