As noted, each .50-caliber ammo can is an authentic piece of United States Military surplus. Originally designed for and used by members of the U.S. Army for the safe transport and storage of ammunition, these .50-caliber ammo cans feature a durable construction and remain in very good condition, still suitable for a number of different storage options. However, because these ammo cans have seen service, some may exhibit slight dents, surface rust, non-standard paint, handling wear or mild discoloration.
Each .50-caliber ammo can measures 11 inches by 7 inches by 5.5 inches and features a fully steel construction with a lockable lever-lock lid that includes a rubber gasket designed to prevent moisture from damaging whatever goods are sealed inside. Each can is also equipped with a handle that is capable of folding flat and provides for easy transport and easy stacking/storage. Most of our cans remain in their original condition, which is to say that they are painted olive with standard caliber, quantity and lot number markings. Because they are used, however, some cans may have been painted by the Military with non-standard colors. As always, we will do our best to ship the highest quality cans first, but no guarantees regarding color or markings can be made.
Judging by the markings on some of the cans, these .50-caliber ammo cans were used to transport and store 5.56x45mm NATO blanks and .50 caliber cartridges. Sometimes, we even find a leftover box of blanks of two hiding in the cans, which is always a nice surprise.
Anyone with an imagination will surely be able to find a use for a .50-caliber ammo can or two. Aside from the obvious transport and storage of ammunition, these ammo cans are great for geocaching. What is geocaching? Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which people use GPS devices to seek out hidden containers, known as geocaches, that have been cleverly hidden by other players and which may contain small items and a logbook for the finder to sign.
Not interested in geocaching, consider the .50-caliber ammo can for:
