Product Overview


  • Rubber Gasket Provides Watertight Seal
  • Heavy, Secure Latch
  • Steel Construction
  • Removable Lid

Military Surplus Ammo Cans have hundreds of uses around the home, shop or range. 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.

Note: These metal cans are the size used for 50 BMG 100 round linked belts. However, they may be marked M2 .30 Caliber (30-06 Springfield) or 5.56mm or have various other ammunition and military markings.

Grade 1: Excellent to New Unissued - Cans show no sign of wear. Gasket is fully intact for water tight storage. All grades may have markings, but grade 1 cans will not have any spray paint present.

Grade 2: Good to Very Good - Cans may have light handling marks present on exterior, but the interior will be dry and free of rust/debris. Exterior of can may have dust or water spots due to outdoor storage. Small amounts of surface rust may be present at bottom corners, but will not exceed 1/2" in diameter. Can may have small amounts of spray paint covering military designations.

Grade 3: Fair to Serviceable – These may show signs of heavy use, fading, and/or may have small amounts of dust/debris present. Grade 3 cans will likely have surface rust on the exterior and minor rust along the interior seams. Rust may be present on the lid either under the handle or along the corners from metal shipping bands.  These cans may have been bent in transit and manually straightened to ensure a proper seal. Cans may have spray paint covering military designations. These cans are in really good condition and have been given this grade mostly due to minor surface rust. Should Customers wish to upgrade the condition of these cans a light cleaning with steel wool and an application of spray paint would be the proper course of action.
