Just got two of them for $5.93 . I had a $20 gift certificate that was given to me by Cabelas for a botched order of .22lr ammo a few weeks back. I was looking for just the right thing to use it on.

OK since you twisted my arm, I took a look at the ones I got from Cabelas when they had a deal on .22 last year or so.

Can stamped m2a1, google tells me it's a surplused new can that goes for $17 at lucky gunner and stayed sealed underwater for 48 hours.

I think it's the real deal, good looking out OP, I'm in for some!

I took a look at the build quality, no way this was made in China IMHO. Maybe I'm wrong.

Do a search on their search bar for "ammo can". Result of "Qingdao" as the brand for that ammo can. I would order anyway if i didn't already get some cans last week. Good price.

I have two "milspec" off brand made in china ammo cans, from different sources (maybe "Quindao" but no way to know). No comparison to the real, issued cans. I'll stick with genuine surplus refurbed cans from ammocanman.com, even through the prices are higher. Worth the extra money, IMO.

Does anyone know if "50 cal" ammo cans are actually different from each other, like thickness of the walls, hinges, seals, etc.? I've never compared them before, but then again, I've never noticed an obvious difference between the brand new ATK ones versus the surplus stuff from sgammo.

I saw the "Made in China" FAQ before ordering and was thought it can't be all that hard (or many ways to cheaply) make an ammo can.

It says $5 shipping with $ 99 or more excluding ammo. Code 83FLAT

So buy 11 or more.

Default ammo cans

Code "83flat" does not work on this item. I think it is because ammo cans are bulky and UPS will charge "dimensional weight charges" when shipping these.

Code "clubfive" does work though. Still a good deal for new M2A1 ammo cans, even if they are made in China.

I've had issues with hinges bending (actually, not hinges, but the little tabs/ears on the front clasp that are used to hook into the ledge and lever the lid closed) on both of my non-issue ammo cans. The metal is just a little softer, it seems. Both sourced in entirely different places (one online, one in a random surplus shop (but new "milspec" not actual surplus)). Never had that problem with any of my other true military surplus cans.

I wouldn't doubt others' claims of no issues, but after being burned twice, I won't go near them anymore.

83flat works fine. Make sure you order something else that is over $99. I got the co-ax press and had it shipped with ammo boxes and it took the discount. You can resale the $219 press for $300 on Ebay if you don't want it (its that good of a deal).

I'll try heat treating the tabs.

*IF* the boxes are the same as the ones I bought from Cabelas last year, (no reason to think they aren't)they're milsurp and the manufacturer is SCF.

I don't know what factory SCF is, but the gubmint buys them, so I'd guess they're 'merican.

I just looked at my cans. Those are welded nicely, no "made in china" anywhere LOL!

Thanks OP, I'm in for 10.

They're not the same. See the Q&A for for this item, and the official response from Cabela's:

"The Mil-Spec .50 Cal Ammo Can, item # IK-218566, is made in China."

There were some new, US made cans floating around last year. The ones you bought might have been genuine, Mil ammo cans. These are not.

They won't say "Made In China" on them. kkp already showed the quote from Cabela's saying that they're made in china.

For me, I'm not going to risk putting expensive ammo and gear in a questionable can just to save $5-$6. Who knows what's in the paint or what the seals are made of and how long they'll last before degrading. It's just not worth it to me, I'll spend the extra $5.

For those who do not like this can, which cans do you prefer?
I have no experience with these cans but I agree that it's tough to put expensive ammo in cans you don't trust.

Which cans do you prefer? Where can I find them?

Thank you!

Real, issue ammo cans. Available from AmmoCanMan.com (lots of other places, too, I just know I can trust the real thing from ACM to be, well, the real thing.)

http://ammocanman.com/50-cal-ammo-can-c-1_25/

If I was buying today, it would be this 3-pack of used but best condition ("grade 1") cans: http://ammocanman.com/50-cal-ammo-ca...e-1-p-160.html ($20 each, free shipping, other quantities are available, too, discount varies by number purchased)

Bearing in mind everything I said above:

1) While *I* have had bad luck with non-GI issue ammo cans, that doesn't mean *YOU* will.

2) How extreme are your needs? If you're going to bury your ammo cans in a hole in the backyard, to prepare for the End of Days, you'd best spend the extra money. If you're storing it in a leaky shed for the winter, it's probably best to go for the real thing. If you're going to put them on a shelf in the basement or spare bedroom, perfection probably doesn't matter as much. If you're storing them in a drafty, non-temp-controlled garage, well, it's up to you how much it matters to YOU.

Personally, I don't live in a snowy or rainy area of Los Angeles. My ammo cans either live in a spare bedroom (house temp), ready to go to the range, or on a shelf in a hot, hot, SoCal garage (dry but rarely cold, often quite hot), for longer term storage. I could probably do just fine with the cheaper ones. The seals really aren't super important to me, in my circumstances. But I don't like it when cheaper gear fails, and it's worth it to me to spend a few extra bucks on something I feel is more dependable.
