    1st review

    probably the best carbine ever for those of us who carry 1911's. This carbine uses 1911 mags and is very reliable and accurate.

    I own one and love it! It's a great carbine. Great home defense weapon. Small,light, and easy to handle. Knock down power of the 45acp round makes this excellent close quaters weapon. If it held few more rounds I'd carry mine on duty.

    Well made firearm, by a good gun manufacturer. The biggest down fall of this gun is the magazine capacity.

    I'm sure I got a lemon based on others' reviews and experiences. I bought one of these used in 2000 and couldn't get the thing to cycle at all. I'm a 1911 guy, so I have TONS of magazines. I tried em all b/c I really liked the idea of a carbine that used my favorite cartridge AND magazines. Alas, it was not to be and I sold it. I'm still looking for one to replace it as I have heard nothing but good things about it, but Marlin stopped making the Camp Carbines in all calibers years ago. I'm glad others are happy w/ theirs. I gave this 2 stars based on others' experiences and the design. I wish I could give it more stars, but my experience forbids me.

    I am an avid .45 ACP reloader and a target shooter with my S & W 1911Sc pistol.
    The Marlin Camp 45 fires the .45 ACP round, and can use the same magazine from 1911.
    This makes the .45 ACP a round that both a rifle & pistol uses.
    This is why Marlin Model 45 Camp deserves a high rating.
