I had one of each caliber back in the day. The .45 used 1911 mags and came with a Metalform mag. I still have a can full of old Metalform mags and the early ones were excellent. OEM for many companies, including Colt.

I'd buy another Camp Carbine in a second.

I know alot of you hate hi point, however, their carbines are great, 40 cal version is getting a facelift right now. I owned the 9mm for a while and it was a nice little gun. Low cost and 40 cal go great with my xd40. Just have to wait till they have more

I don't hate them, but have no experience with them. I've heard very good things about the carbines. But how many rounds does it take to wear one out?

Yes, they did a run in the late 80s and I happened across a dealer that had a couple--already had a Ruger Bisley .41 so I grabbed. I see one every once in awhile at gun shows, but not very often--they did another run a few years ago with pistol grips--almost got another then but couldn't justify it.

I was looking at a Marlin 1894 lever-gun in 44mag/44special. They also come in the huge 45-70 Gov't like Canebrake showed down to the 357mag/38special. The 1894 comes with a drilled and taped top so you can mount a scope of your choice and ejects the shells out of the side and have a very ergonomic feel. I've shot one of their 30-30 models and it is a wonderful piece of work. The 1894 Marlin in 44mag is going for about $600 on Gunbroker, sounds like a pretty decent deal to me. I know if I had an extra $600 or so I'd get one.

I have a Marlin 1894-SS in 44 Mag and a Ruger Super Redhawk that go so well with each other
