The genuine United States military surplus steel M2A1 can is often referred to as the .50 cal ammo can, however, it is used to carry various munitions. Featuring a rubber seal around the lid, these cans are designed to be very air tight and water resistant. The ammo cans are designed to be stackable; there is a fold down handle on the top that lays flat for easy storage or the lid can be completely removed. Olive drab painted steel increases weather resistance and longevity. They can be locked using a long shackle padlock- we recommend an American made lock (Wilson Bohannan Lock Company still manufactures in the USA). Perfect for hundreds of storage uses and projects!
