Remember it was Marlins low end rifles, I think it was around $200. I have a camp 45, I bought about 10 Chip McCormick 10rds mags and save the Marlin mag for future use. I sold a lot of my Marlin Collection and down to only 3 rifles, one being the camp 45. That one is one of the most unrated rifle Marlin ever build. People say this and that about the rifle and I bet half of them never shot one. Yes my stock cracked and I replace it with a hand build one in black Walnut with a bull eye in the stock. Well back to your question, I would pay $700 for the rifle. check it good for rust under the stock. Good Luck

I remember seeing ads years ago from some company that sold the 9 and 45 Camp Carbines that were modified with full-barrel suppressors. A big fat shroud from receiver to muzzle, like a DeLisle. Always wondered if those worked worth a hoot, and if anybody actually has one.....

Looky here, I had a photo of one! Camp Carbine.jpg

I thought the same thing...why not steel part?.......Damn you Marlin(must have been too heavy?)
I have a spare magazine well, bought it on Numrich for less than $20. (It's a little insurance should I crack one.)
I also have spare buffers & a spare wood stock (just in case!) Luckily a lot of the parts are still available at Numrich & Ebay

Look it as ahead of their time, like the Remington Nylon 22 rifles, Browning uses a plastic for the mags on the Xbolt...no rust and quiet in the field

Remember when you could get one for under $300 at Kmart or Service Merchandise? I should have bought a bunch of them(or had my dad buy them, i was young then)

If anyone has a lead on a Camp 45 stock I would be interested. Either original or aftermarket.
I have a new/refurbished marlin camp 9 stock.........are they the same dimensions as the camp 45 stocks?

OTOH, Boyds only offers stocks for the Camp 9, suggesting that the stocks are indeed not interchangeable between the two models.

OTOH, the folding stock made by Choate lists one stock for the Marlin 9/45 - Link: https://www.riflestock.com/store/product/camp-9mm-45acp-folding-stock/

When I get a minute free I will have to see if the OEM stock fits both the 9 and 45........ Any one care to wager?? Inquiring minds want to know...........:dancing2:

P.S.

Ramline has a folder for the Model 9 part # 1657160 and for the Model 45 part # (also) 1657160.

Marlin does list two different part #'s 9 and 45 - (one digit off).... I wonder if one is for the plain stock and one is for the checkered stock??

I don’t know, I sold my Camp 9 years ago, still have the Camp 45. The Choate fits mine okay, enough room to accommodate a slightly different action. No idea if “all” Camp 9 stocks fit the Camp 45.

For what it is worth, tonight I removed the OEM plain stock from a Camp 9 and installed it on a Camp 45, no problem. I hope that helps.

I've been looking for a Camp 45. All I find are GunsAmerica/Gun Broker, etc., that all are sold. And at around $11000-1500. I have a Rock Island Tactical 1911, and the Camp would be a good companion for it.
Does anyone have one or know of one for sale?
Thanks

Lost track of this thread. I have not bought the 45. It is still in my buddys possesion at his Gun Shop here in Nebraska where I live. I cannot afford it right now. So may pass my buddys contact info on if someone might want it. He is a good guy. He does not have it in the store displayed for sale. He has a 9 also. I would like to have it but I just bought a 27s pump and a Marlin 717 Mach 2. So pretty tapped out rght now on Gun purchases. I cannot say that he will sell to others for my buddy price. But that is betweeen you and him..Thanks
