We are happy to announce the receipt of a large lot of yellow lettered M19A1 30 cal ammo cans and 50 cal size M2A1 ammo cans. The Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) has discontinued the yellow lettering on their ammunition production line in favor of white digital printed lettering. The new cans are the same USA made quality, but the white type just doesn’t have the same classic military style as the discontinued yellow cans. These are likely some of the last of the un-issued classic yellow lettered Lake City cans that will be available outside of government auction channels. As the remaining few of the yellow cans travel through the supply chain, they have been harder and harder to find but are available here for a limited time in their original wood ammunition crates.
CleanAmmoCans.com is excited to announce the arrival of the elusive M2A2 50 cal size 5.56 ammo cans! We’ve had them trickling in periodically for the past couple of months but have finally amassed a large enough lot to reliably provide them as an option to our customers. The M2A2 model of ammo can is still hard to find since they have only been utilized for military spec ammunition within the last couple years and have not fully hit the military surplus market yet. Commercial ammo is still shipping from Lake City in M2A1 cans. Read on to learn about the M2A2 ammo can design improvement!
