The Camp 9 uses S&W 59xx series magazines.  Very common, inexpensive and available from several aftermarket companies.    Most of mine are ~15 round capacity.   I had a 30 rounder but sold it, because it didn't function reliably.    I keep thinking I'll do something with the stock.  Don't like what's on the aftermarket, but that's a project for a later date.  I want a higher comb and to insure the barrel is free floating.  Not into it looking like an AR or a space-age gun.  I'm fine with wood.

OH and if you have one (or a Camp 45) you need to get some replacement recoil buffers.  The original one will shatter eventually (as mine did).  The gun will function without it in a pinch, the problem is getting all the little pieces out of the action/trigger.  I think the original tended to be more "plastic" and definitely crystalized after about 20 years.  Replacements are cheap and having several spares is a good idea.  The delrin ones should last a long time.

I wish Marlin would bring back the camp 45.
