Marlin Camp 9/Model 45 Projects

Got some time on my hands and machinery at my disposal, so I have examples of my ongoing Marlin Carbine projects to share and a question.

The first pics are of the billet chassis my Camp 9 is now occupying.

How do the Camp 9 and the Model 45 actions compare dimensionally? Has anyone ever did a detailed comparison using calipers to measure the actions side by side? This is important as I inlet my chassis quite closely with weight savings a prime concern. Supposedly the after-market stocks are designed to fit either, is this the case?

I ask this because I have an idea for a billet Bullpup stock. I want to eventually get a Model 45 action for it (which I can't currently afford and still buy the parts for the New stock idea). I would like to use my Camp 9 for mock up.

I have a HIGHLY modified Muzzelite stock that performs flawlessly with my mods. I will post this for sale in the near future on a few different forums after my new Bullpup design is in progress.

that's impressive but the action noise so close to r/ear.

I don't really notice an increase in "Action" noise. I'd have to say that shooting an AR is mechanically noisier (due to that buffer and spring zinging down the tube) than this Bullpup platform. If you look at the one pic you can see the aluminum piece I made (to replace the factory flat panel) that hangs over, and provides deflection for any blow-by, etc... . There are more than a few arms out there currently using a Bullpup configuration, Steyr AUG is the first to come to mind.

So what do you think about the Camp 9 vs Model 45 actions as far as them requiring the same inletting for my chassis project???

I have both, I'll try to check some inlet dimensions and get back to you.
I have my 9 in a choate folder which came with literature stateing it would fit either.

Wow your pictures look great!! I would love my Camp 9 to look like that. Are you going to be making/selling any parts? Thanks
