Not to sound like a priss, but I want NEW ammo cans for my gear.

Specifcially, I've got about 20 AR 30rd mags. What particular size and where can I get NEW ones, NOT USED, or SLIGHTLY USED. JUST NEW.

Thanks

Join the Marines... other than that... they will be used at least once. I was stupid at one of the first Fun Shows I ever went to, they had TONS of slightly used ones for something like 3.00 a can for 50 cal cans... I didnt buy any. WHAT a dumb ass.

I'm pretty sure the feedback is still in the EE. The only things I ever "exchanged" was mags for a membership and two "NOD" cases (sold as magazine storage containers) from you.

theres a guy who goes to the kali gun shows that has brand new ammo cans (as close as your gonna get to NEW) of all shapes and sizes, 30s to 50s to fat 50s to rockets. they are in near perfect condition, no dents, no rust, no scratchs, rubber liner is perfect.
he even modifys some to use a padlock, just an eyebolt, which anyone can do at home for 75cents, but he charges an extra $5.
dont know his source, but the new ones are only a few bucks more than the beater used one others sell.

the dirty rusty ones that i get i usually sand them down, wash them out, and re-spray paint them. its good practice for doing camo jobs, and its easier to remember that the black can has ammo A and the camo can has ammo B and the tan can has ammo C and the candy apple red can has ammo D.

when i was a kid i once had access to a storage shed of over 300 50cal cans, but thats another story.

welcom­e to kali, we may not have good gun laws, but we got ammo cans

^ yeah but i have nice ones only because they are preban CAL Legal ammo cans

I have quite a few cans that I got new, with no markings. If, at the time, I had known just how rare they were I would have tons more. From 1998 to 2000 I worked at an army surplus/police supply/gun shop in Gainesville Florida. About once a year, in the summertime, this guy would call and tell us he would be in town in a couple of days. He would show up in this pickup pulling this big-ass trailer. Inside the trailer was tons of brand new ammo cans. How new? The huge ones came with the gasket but you had to install it yourself.

If anyone wants to doubt this, several of the cans I have still look very good, and I'll try to post pics. FWIW I've asked this question here before because I'd like some more of them, but nobody has ever been able to point me in the right direction.

I checked to see if I saved the IMs from that deal. You're right, it wasn't you. It was markm. I guess that was too many brain cells ago. 3/24/03.

GROUP BUY?



Those went for about $1.75 each. Figure about 15-20% damage for the top cans from strapping and you still get a good deal.

I am down for a group buy of SAW ammo cans. Let me know who is doing it and I will help out.

thanks,

Thanks, but I hate to sound too demanding, but nobody has pointed me in the direction of NEW FAT .50 calibler ammo cans. Ok, I'm willing to settle for EXCELLENT condition (if not new), but the one link above that described their cans in that condition were not FAT 50s. Any other suggestions?

I thought Troy made it clear.... if you want NEW fat 50's, sign up for the military.

Now, they say this, but they may or may not be that way. I have gotten CTD cans that came in looking brand spanking new.... but they have to say this because a lot of their inventory might be a little beat up. In any case.... it is likely you are gonna have to hit them with a rattle can.... so who cares, right?
