Recommended Posts

I found ammunition can together with Vietnam War items. I hope, it's the same age can.

Your ammo can is: Ball M2, with 8 round enbloc clips used in the M1 Garand rifle. The primary battle rifle for Vietnam was the M16.

The M1 Garand was used early in the war by the ARVIN and I've seen one in the hands of a SF Sgt. The M1 used M2 ammo which is what this can once held, so yes the can can be considered Vietnam Era.

M1 Garand rifle was used in World War II, Korean War, Suez Crisis, Cuban Revolution, Vietnam War. The ammunition box can be earlier, it’s possible.

That ammo can is after Vietnam. I know the M1 was used in the early years of Vietnam. In 1972 and 1976 Lake City made a few Lots of Ball, M2 for use in the US, mainly for the DCM matches. The above can has a Lot number (42279) in the 1976 Lot numbers range. <Just the facts.
