I am looking at getting a 9mm carbine to supplement my stable of 9mm handguns. As a matter of fact I found a really nice used Marlin Camp 9 at a local shop complete with a decent little Tasco scope, sling, 20 rd mag, and flash-hider, so I put a deposit down to hold it. I am not worried about the desposit as I know I can get it back if I change my mind. The main reason I am interested in the Camp 9 is that it will accept S&W 59 series mags. I have both a 5906 and a Kel-Tec P11 that also will use the same ones. What I am looking for is some information. I have heard a lot of good things about the Hi-Point 9mm Carbine, and I used to have a Ruger PC9 (traded it for a "T" series BHP). I am not interested in the Kel-Tec Sub2000 as the stock is too short for me. I would be interested in a Beretta storm if it were within my price range. How do the Hi-Point and the Ruger stack up against the Camp 9? If you had your druthers which one of the three would you have? What would be a good price on the Camp 9? I can still dicker if I want.
