Don’t be jealous. When we get in shipments of old ammo cans, employees get to salvage and keep the too-damaged-to-sell ones. Inevitably, these cans have quite a bit of rust, missing hinges or corroded seals. Being the frugal shopper that I am, I always take advantage of these free ammo cans. Though this does save me money, I don’t trust many of my old, rusty surplus cans to serve much more use than the original intention. And I certainly won’t bury them.
Finding totally unused military surplus gear is a rarity and though much of the appeal of military surplus is the item’s history, I do see the great advantages of certain gear being brand new and unissued—as is in the case of ammo cans.
Despite storing ammo, these cans are useful for so much more. We—or at least we should—all know the value off old ammo cans. In fact, gun folks I know believe you can never have enough ammo cans. That is why this 12-pack of .50-caliber ammo cans make such a great gift for you and your shooting friends. For a little over $13 a piece, you get a 12 pack of brand new, unissued .50 caliber, made-in-the-USA ammo cans. An ammo can makes a perfect gift for coworkers, hunting buddies, members of your shooting league and family members—keeping one for yourself, of course.
Sealed in their original cardboard box, this case of .50-caliber M2A1 ammo cans arrive directly how the United States government ordered them, with dividers between the cans.
