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.

Very impressive love the work you have done. I just don't have a good imagination. I envy those of you who do.

Your workmanship is spectacular! Now this is just my 2 cents, I am no fan of the Muzzlelite, and am lukewarm on bullpups in general. Never shot a bullpup (held the Muzzlelite, and thought it was a POS, and a PIA), so I might feel different if I do shoot one.

Your chassis is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dude with a proper handguard on that thing, that is the cats meow (well, cats hind end too). That is a very cool platform as is.

how is the pistol grip/trigger distance - looks a bit far, but cant always tell from a photo. Anyways, great work!

Mad skills man.

Excellent work sir! It's been a little while since you posted those photos. I wish to know if you have made any other improvements to the billet chassis you made and are you happy with it. It looks great in the photos. You have inspired me to make one as well. I also have the Marlin Camp in .45 with an integral suppressor

Nice, too bad that Marlin stopped making this carbine in either caliber.

The Beretta CX4 in 9mm is a great shooter, and love it.
The .45 model is very popular too, and it's a "pistol" bull pup, in that the mag goes up the pistol handle, not before, or behind it.

The FS2000 and PS90 are all great designs if you are into bull pups. Next one I'd love to get is the Tavor in 5.56 and the 9mm kit that fits the same "stock" but uses IMI Uzi mags.

On various boards, there are a few guys who have modified CX4 stocks to remove the "bunny ear" sights, adapt longer rails to a flat top, cut off the shoulder stock, put on AR tubes, with AR/Magpul stocks and no "thumb hole" anymore. Nobody has done an alloy one that I've seen, and that would be interesting indeed, especially if it used standard AR grip/stock with a small diameter keyhole barrel hand guard front.

I've wanted to shorten the barrel on a CX4 for awhile, pin/weld on a compensator/flash/suppressor adapter for OAL of 16.1" and just enjoy, but it shoots so absolutely awesome now, I'd hate disrupt the accuracy of the carbine. At 100 yards or less, it's the most accurate weapon I have. Period. Spooky accurate.
