.50-Caliber Ammo Can

99 47 100 0

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.



Availability: In stock

$14.95

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.

    Purchased a few more cans from Keep Shooting, all were clean and complete, gaskets in great shape, no rust. Great value for the price; they don't get busted up like the plastic ones can, much easier to stack in the ammo locker too!

    I have two of these cans - they're great for storing anything that needs to be kept dry and organized. Use it as a toolbox, lunchbox, screw or nnail can, paint can...

    I have several of these and have had them for years! The standard 50 cal. size is great for storing stuff and is even waterproof. I've used these for years now on rafting expeditions for stuff that needs to be readily available and dry. Good stuff!!!

    Ammo cans are drying up fast these days. They are very versatile and you can store untold amounts if ammo, electronics, valuables, anything you can imagine. My local surplus store sells these for $25 when they have them in stock. Snatch them up while you still can.

    As far as surplus ammo cans are concerned, this one was pretty nice. For only fifteen bucks I can hold hundreds of 5.56 rounds on stripper clips. The only thing I would say is that the bottom had quite a bit of rust on the corners. Not a big deal, I don't think it affected the integrity of the can, just an observation. Overall awesome KS keep up the good work!

    Unsurprisingly, these ammo cans work great for their intended purpose: holding ammo. I've found I can fit 250 rds of 12 gauge shotshells in one of these no problem. In others I've got around 5,000 rds of .22 LR ammo, and miscellaneous gun supplies. Highly recommend this product!

    I thought they were in great condition for surplus, scratches and dings in the paint, a few random handwritten markings, but no rust, sealed well, in very good working order without needing any type of repair or maintenance. I am satisfied but deducted one star from price as I think given their size and shipping, a multiple of 4 should get a price break, and maybe another at eight?

    Great for storing ammunition without worrying about corrosion. They have a tight seal and are a good organized way to store all calibers of ammo, I'd recommend putting a strip of duct tape on the front of it and writing what caliber is in there to stay more organized

  37. Great can for the price review by AvidShooter on 4/20/2012

    Quality

    These cans are very sturdy, mine looked almost new, and was marked as having held .50BMG tracer rounds at some point. I will admit that for the price these cans are a must have. Personally though I prefer the WWII era .50BMG cans because they are slightly bigger in dimension. They seem just as sturdy if not more so than its newer counterpart at over a pound lighter. The latch on the new model is much sturdier though and seems to make the new cans carry a little easier.

    Value

    So far i have this ammo can and can definitely say the uses are many, as it can do than just hold real gun ammunition, great for paintball, airsoft ammunition, good for gun magazines, can store any tools needed, and you also don't need to worry about anything inside getting dirty or wet, like say if you dropped it in a muddy foxhole (like I did one time). I opened it up and nothing was dirty or even moist, I was amazed. The tight seal made by the latch is extremely durable, as the ammo can is, its made solid, not crappy whatsoever! Oh and also, if you have friends that like to have paintball/airsoft games where you Capture the Flag, Capture the Army Crate is a lot more fun but harder.
