Is there anyway you can get 100% geniune NEW 50 cal ammo cans? How about like-new ones, with all paint, and no dings, scratches, and or dents.

There is an Asian fellow who sells a lot of military surplus and sometimes shows up at the San Jose, CA and always shows up at the San Francisco, CA gun shows. At the last San Jose show (12/23/01) he had brand new 50 cal. cans complete with the original dessicant inside and a warning label on the outside saying not to open can and remove dessicant until ready for use. That's about as new as you can get. I think he was asking $5 ea. This was the first time I had seen new cans, but his used ones are darn near 95%+. T & S gunshows are the promoters of the San Jose show. You might do a search on the internet for them, get their contact #, call and ask if they can supply you with his business name/phone number. Mention he was at the 12/23 show.

I've popped the depot seals on thousands of .50 cal cans (with .50 cal inside) and I've never seen a desicant pack inside one. Maybe he had cans that were never used by a depot, but I wonder why the dessicant. Certain containers require dessicant even when empty, but, to the best of my knowledge, small arms containers (even when used for other than small arms ammo) don't. Eddie
