Quantity One - New USGI M2A1 50cal Size Steel 5.56 Ammo Can

Quantity one, new production, USGI, 50 cal size, metal M2A1 ammo can! These ammo cans are produced by one of the approved suppliers to the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant for current issue military ammunition production. The fit, finish, quality and corrosion resistance of the ammo cans from this manufacturer are outstanding compared to some of the other ammo can producers. 

We have handled the ammo cans from every manufacturer over the years and are especially excited at the quality of materials and corrosion resistance of these cans. Each ammo can has a powder coated finish with a corrosion resistant zinc phosphate base layer for corrosion resistance that far exceeds US Military standards. 

So what is the difference between USGI ammo cans and Chinese knock-off cans? The USGI ammo can specs require a robust, high quality seal that actually comprises a surprisingly large portion of the manufacturing cost for each ammo can. The Chinese manufactures are not bound to military specifications and have substituted a cheaper, less durable seal to reduce their costs that do not last as long. USGI ammo cans are required to have a zinc phosphate base coating that acts as a primer for the powder coat finish and provides additional corrosion resistance. Chinese ammo cans do not have the zinc phosphate base coat. The Chinese ammo cans look the same, and may feel the same, but they are not the same. With ammunition prices at an all time high, don't compromise your investment by choosing an ammo can that prioritizes cost savings over long-term moisture resistance.

Each M2A1 ammo box is shipped in a cardboard box via UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail. Since military ammo cans are not consumer grade retail items, some of the ammo cans may have light scuffs from handling but are in brand new condition.
