    Think a surplus mil-spec ammo can is only good for storing and transporting ammo? Of course not -- a Widener’s customer could never be so short-sighted. You know this sturdy receptacle is ideal for keeping delicate apparatus safe during hunting, camping, boating, and car trips. Its thick steel sides repel abuse like it’s nothing, and its lid’s rubber gasket closes tightly to keep water for soggifying your valuable miscellanea. And yes, of course this 50 Cal M2A1 can will fit hundreds if not thousands of rounds of your favorite ammo. Order ten or twenty and take care of all your Christmas shopping months in advance!

    This ammo can is real military surplus, and it definitely shows. Our brave troops dented it, bent it, scuffed it, painted it, put stickers on it, and even let it rust a little bit both inside and out. Don’t think it inconsiderate of them -- if they knew it was you who would eventually wind up owning it, they definitely would have treated it with greater care. It’s still in fair condition, so it functions every bit as well as an ammo can should.

    We underpromise and overdeliver here at Widener’s. The can we used as a photo example is almost certainly worse for wear than the one we will actually send you, which we believe ought to leave you pleasantly surprised!

    Who would you rather buy a surplus ammo can from? The Long Island Rail Road? Doctors Without Borders? The Girl Scouts? No, you want the same kind of quality that the U.S. Armed Forces employs to keep their ammo fresh and ready to fire. Now’s your opportunity to have exactly that!

    This M2A1 ammo can is designed to store 50 caliber cartridges, which means it’s roomy enough to fit a lot of any smaller rounds you could wish to store or transport. 9mm, 223 Rem, 22 LR, 6.5x54 Mannlicher Sch -- it’s all going to fit, it’s all going to be kept safe from corrosion by a tight sealing gasket and latch, and it will be easy to carry via the can’s rugged steel handle.

    We divided our enormous trove of ammo cans into two categories when we took it home from the gummint auction: good and fair. This is one of the good ones. If it has got rust, it’s only in small patches on the corners -- never inside of the can. There are no dents or bending anywhere on this can, but a tiny scuff and a little dirt here and there only adds character, in our humble opinion. You can make out all of this can’s original stenciling, because it hasn’t been painted.

    Please note that we chose one of the slightly more weathered cans for this product page’s photos. The one we send you will nearly certainly be in better shape than that, but we didn’t wish to promise you something we don’t deliver.

    Great price, really good condition

    The price was right and shipping was minimal when I added to my bullet order. Will add one of these on on my next order

    Made In ChinaYou can’t go about storing and transporting your ammunition all willy nilly, like some kind of barbarian would. Cartridges of any quality deserve to be housed within the dignified confines of a mil-spec ammo can. We feel this way strongly, so we keep just such an ammo can in stock and ready to accompany any our fine ammo that ships out.

    This ammo can greatly immunizes its contents against the corruptive influences of rain, atmospheric moisture, dust, and windborne soil. Its strong latch ensures that its lid’s gasket presses closely against its walls, making it all but waterproof to prepare for the most trying weather conditions you could encounter. This ammo can is particularly spacious, as it is designed to store 50 Cal rounds for the M2A1 heavy machine gun. As such you may store up to 700 223 Rem cartridges in it, or significantly more smaller ones. It’s the perfect accomplice to any ardent handloader who respects their work too greatly to place it in a plastic baggie, and loosely packed bulk ammo absolutely demands it. Order yours today!

    Review by Breeze (Posted on 6/5/2022)

    Much better than the surplus cans I’ve bought.

    Very good quality and a great price.

    Nice cans!

    Except for wear and tear on Surplus cans, these are the same. I'm using them to store 5.56. ammo - 1000 rounds at a time (also available at Wideners). They work perfectly for that.

    Excellent quality and excellent price

    I got 24 of these high quality 50 cal ammo cans. I liked them so much I got 24 more . High quality cans at a low price!

    Ammo Cans Storage

    I have at least two dozen 30 caliber cans. Thinking about the 50 cal at this price, great deal. New cans with rubber seal keep all the moisture at bay. Don't be surprised if the paint hasn't completely cured, the smell will eventually dissipate.

    Excellent!

    Brand new ammo cans at a fantastic price!
