Guys can anyone please post thier own collections or variations of 30 cal ammo cans and makers.

 

Just need to verify that some of mine are WW2 era and not later more modern types.

 

Thanks guys

Since it has the catch on the side does it also have the hinge on the side? If so I think it is WW2. I don't think they used those side hinge cans after the war.

Thanks Bilko..i will try to get some photos uploaded of it .

 

The clamp and latch assembly is made by M A Co and the markings and data are all standard WW2 looking ones.

 

The only "hinge" i can see is the lid hinge at the top of the can

That is the tripod for the M1917A1 water-cooled .30 cal. I'm sure a quick google search would give you more info thatn you wanted!

David-

 

In my experience, the cans you posted generally go in the $10-$25 range. The price range depends on the normal variables such as condition, manufacturer, markings, etc.
