Was at local gun last week when I came across a rifle that I have never seen before. It turned out to be a 1988 Marlin Camp 9 and there was a tag on it saying only a few rounds had been fired thru it. This thing looked brand new and with a price tag of 450 dollars I knew I had to have it. I put it on layaway and will pick it up in time to put it under Christmas tree. That's right dear i did not buy another gun, Santa did. I have ordered new buffer, wolf recoil spring, red dot and rail. I'm hoping that I will enjoy it; I can take this to my indoor range without incurring the wrath of fellow shooters. There is nothing more annoying then when the guy next to you is shooting his 45/70.
