I handled one at the LGS today, looked unfired. Seems like it would make a nice complement to my S&W 5904. I see that GB has them at rather elevated prices ($600-800???). I definitely prefer the look of the Marlin to the current High Point, Kel Tec and Beretta pistol caliber carbines. Thanks.

I wouldn't buy one at any price... they are cool looking, but weren't very reliable.

There are some inexpensive fixes for them. I have one and have had no reliability issues with it.
Price? What would *I* pay for one, not much since I already have one:p
Now if I stumbled across the .45 version- I'd be tempted to pay too much:)

I wouldn't buy a 9, simple because it is a 9, but I would give about $400 for a used .45 CC.

I like that the Camp Carbine uses the S&W Mags, but the Ruger Police Carbine or PC9 was a better gun.

The going price for Camp Carbines is $350.00 (if you can find for that) and $450.00. They will go up in price with time.

Camp 9's aren't bad. Fun to play with.

Makes a Great groundhog gun around the barn and haybales.

Mine has been reliable other than having to replace a broken firing pin a few years ago.
