Military Surplus Ammo Cans have hundreds of uses around the home, shop or range. This can size was originally used to hold 30 caliber belted machine gun ammunition but has been adopted to hold demolition ignition systems and many other items. These Ammo Cans feature sturdy steel construction with waterproof seals. The buyers at Midway purchase these cans in bulk from different suppliers and grade them before they are placed into inventory. Each can is visually inspected and lids are manually opened to ensure proper range of motion. Cans with internal rust are discarded and any debris is removed before can is sealed and labeled with the proper grade. All grades may have markings but grades 1 & 2 will not have spray paint present.
