Balming, may I ask how you came by this deal? And, more importantly, can you tell me?

Here is the story: A man couldn't pay his legal fees to his lawyer, so he gave the lawyer 47 guns. The lawyer took them to a friends gunshop to dispose of quickly. I was in the right place at the right time!

The Marlin has no front sight, and someone tried to thread the bbl but didn't finish the job. No big deal though, I'll probably put a red dot scope I have laying around on it and put some type of flash hider on the bbl.


I also bought 3 dbl bbl 12 guage Savage/Stevens shotguns at a steal!

I had a Camp .45. In fact, I killed my first buck with it. I have since sold it, though.

Hey jrzy,

Is there anything I should know about these things besides go out and have fun with it?

The buffer is pretty much gone, so I plan on fabricating one.

I got a good deal on a rifle today too, not to threadjack or anything.

My grandmother was going through the family's collection, and found a marlin 1895 in 45-70, new in the box, that my grandfather bought before he passed away. She sold it to me for $250 today

The buffer is pretty much the worst problem on the rifle. You can't order them from Ruger anymore so as you've already discovered they have to be fabricated. They do get really filthy and are kind of a hassle to disassemble compared to other rifles, but I found cleaning them to be kind of fun.

Other than that, my experience with them is that they are super accurate little rifles. I just gave my only one to my brother in law for a first rifle and already miss it. It would chew a single ragged hole (probably an inch or so) through the x ring at 50 yards. With 9mm being the cheapest ammo out there besides .22 I think they make really cool plinkers. I probably had more fun with my camp nine than most of the guns I've owned....in the bulk ammo price range anyway.



Good buy, you'll have lots of fun!

Great guns to shoot and have fun with and cheap to shoot too.
They cycle almost any ammo you want to use , I have never had a failure to feed or eject yet.

Marlin still has almost every part you would need.
They have brand new checkered stocks for 50 bucks I believe.
I ordered one for each and put them away.
