Better than no can
Definitely not the greatest quality in the world, paint isn't fantastic , that being said, it's the first ammo can ive ever bought, I'm not sure if i would recommend it but at the end of the day, it's a place to store your ammo and it's not too hard on the old wallet, you probably won't be impressing any ladies with how beautiful your can is anyways. It works that all you need to know, stop reading this review and buy the dang can.
Great Ammo Can
ATTENTION : These ammo cans are great. I've bought these several times, always been new condition and the PAINT JOB IS PERFECT, this is not a car it's an ammo can. Don't know why people complain about the paint job.
Nice ammo cans!!
I bought two of them and will likely be buying more. They are just what you need to prepare for the coming zombie apocalypses or even worse, democrats, ughh... I would far rather deal with the zombies. Anyhow, they are very nice, no problems at all, paint job was fine and the price was reasonable. My only quibble is that they are described as new instead of refurbed but have to say they did a great job on them, 5 stars across the board.
Paint job is atrocious
The paint job is so bad they look more like used cans than new. That being said, everything else about it seems good. Locks tight, seems well made. I assume the cans will get beat up over time so the paint job isn't a deal breaker, just expected them to look a little bit better considering they're "new".
Read a few bad reviews on this product but I wanted people to know I just received one and nothing wrong with it whatsoever. Great quality and the bonus of having your ammo shipped inside the can for extra protection during shipping. I will buy a few more. Paint job was nice, so disregard the bad reviews of the paint quality. Thanks Lucky Gunner you guys are awesome.
Paint job is atrocious, hence my 2 stars on quality. Still not as bad as I was expecting. For $20 they could really amp up evening the paint out...
airtight, durable, and it holds just over 5000 .22 rounds in packaging. Don't ask why I have 5k .22 rounds.
Would buy again, but I'm hesitant the next one would have more than a few blobs of paint.
The material used is good quality. The lid sticks and requires a bit of effort to open up. After I got I found cans at the local stores to be cheaper with better quality and performance.
Steel .50 BMG ammo can
What can I say, it's a steel .50 BMG ammo can. It's indestructible and holds lots of .22LR ammo. Future archeologists will find these all arranged and stacked buried in the ground when the house is long gone and wonder what sort of religious ceremonial site it once was...
I found this for $13 at Walmart and they're cleaner. It's a usable ammo can, but the paint was slathered on so liberally that I'm not able to keep it indoors. It was actually difficult to open when I first got it because it looks like it had been closed while the paint on the interior was still wet.
High Quality & Durable Ammo Can
Great quality ammo cans at an affordable price. Very durable cans and the waterproof seal is fantastic. Exactly what I was looking for. Great for more than just ammo. Store anything you want to keep dry, protected and secure.
I ordered 3 of these cans and they are all terrible quality. I don't see how you can call these 'new' or 'premium' when they look like they have been through war. The paint job is terrible. It's like they threw a bucket of paint over it, and then shipped it out immediately after. Spots are unpainted, some spots the paint is all messed up like they were handling the thing while the paint was still wet. When I opened the latch paint chips flew all over my room. There are sharp burs around the edges. This is disgraceful to put "Made in USA" on.
Not just for ammo anymore
Bought two of these to round out my ammo storage needs, and I couldn't be happier with them. The quality is excellent and they can't be beat for the price. Besides ammo, they are great for storing and protecting LiPo batteries for R/C aircraft, among other things; they truly have a thousand and one uses. Love how they stack up so well too.
Quality As Expected - Highly Recommended
I was hesitant to order one of these ammo cans based on sum of the negative reviews but the product I received was flawless. The quality is as expected and the price is hard to beat. Additionally, I ordered 500 rounds of 9mm that LG thoughtfully packed inside the ammo can for shipping. Highly recommended!
Great cans! Ignore the negative reviews.
I don't understand why guys were complaining about these cans. Theyre used to store ammo, not crystal ornaments or family heirlooms! I didn't notice any paint chips or sharp edges. They were tough to open, but that just told me they have excellent seals! I didn't go over mine with a microscope, but I also had no problem or obvious issues with the paint job. I personally feel theyre well made AMERICAN ammo cans that do what theyre designed to do!
Good cans for the money.
Great cans for the money if you plan on using them. If your looking for something for a vehicle restoration project or something like that, then these are not for you. Although these are good for everyday use, quality control is lacking. A few rough edges and half assed paint job.
Disappointing Blackhawk Ammo Cans.
I order 4 of the 50 Cal cans and 4 of the 30 Cal cans, they arrived quickly and were well packaged but that’s where the good news ends.
My experience sounds similar to a few others I have read here; a strong smell of paint inside the cans, sharp edges/burrs, dried paint runs, and sloppy welds, make sure to open these outside for the first time otherwise you will have OD glitter all over your floor.
They were all very hard to open, like they had been painted shut, and they all have a ¼” to ½” bald spot in the bottom center of the can approximately ¾ of the way to the back…maybe they were placed on some sort of dowel as they went through the painting/drying process. They all have the “normal” white residue on the gaskets and several of the cans have a thin film of it all over the can.
Admittedly I am picky but I suggest you only order 1 or 2 to begin with until you determine if the quality to cost ratio works for you. I have found them since at a local store and witnessed the same quality issues but for $5 more a can. I believe these will work for my intended purpose once I thoroughly air them out, deburr them, clean them, touch-up the bare spots, and silicon grease the gaskets…but if I had wanted to do all this I could have bought surplus cans for less.
The most disappointing thing about this is these say they are made in the USA, that is one of the reason I bought them. Poor manufacturing like this will drive people to by better quality imported goods, shoddy workmanship like this won’t make America great again, it will make China great again!
I want to be clear that my disappoint is with the Blackhawk Ammo Cans, not Lucky Gunner. I plan on continuing to shop with LG just not for ammo cans.
Blackhawk labeled M2A1 .50 cal ammo can
These are the first .50 cal ammo cans I have added to my collection to replace larger plastic ammo crates.
The seals are tight and most likely the cans were not fully inspected as several of the cans had metal debris just inside the can lip near the lids. I did get a nice metal prick when inspecting the bottom of the cans. Clearly, quality control was not top of the list. Overall, the cans are going to get the ammunition transferred over after our company leaves post 4th of July. I am ordering rechargeable desiccant packs for the cans. The cost was appropriate for the quality. I am treating the rubber gasket seals with a lubricant to hopefully extend shelf life of the cans.
Worst ammo cans I have purchased
Not sure if most of the reviews here are for a different brand, but the review by Chad is closer to my experience. The ones I received are labeled "Blackhawk" brand, and are the worst ammo cans I've purchased so far. They reek of paint, and have big dried paint drips in some places, while other areas received no paint and are likely to rust.
The edges of the lid have some very sharp spots, enough that you need to be careful handling the lid. Where the sides are folded under on the bottom of the can, it's jagged metal - not straight/smooth like other cans I have. I cut my finger supporting one of the cans from the bottom while I was moving it.
I'd recommend looking elsewhere for a better alternative. Hopefully customer service will make this right.
If you want cans that smell like paint, buy these
Aside from the price I am very disappointed in these. Seals look dry and brittle and even after days of airing them out, there still a strong smell of fresh paint. Even a bunch of flaking paint inside. If I wanted a refurbished can, I could spray painted my old ones. These are not new as advertised. Purchaser beware.
Excellent shape ammo cans and Very nicely packaged for shipping.
I am very happy with the ammo cans and the packaging. They were packaged and shipped very quickly. Couldn't ask for more.
Good company will order again. Thank you very much.
Very Nice Cans!
I said that about an old girlfriend of mine once to a friend of mine....she overheard me and I got socked in the arm.....anyway, on to my review! These units are just the right size. Worth every cent @ $17, but do yourself a favor and buy at least a box of 6 for $14 each or stay tuned for sales. The only thing these cans aren't, is bullet proof! Leslie's Pool Grease is what I put on my gaskets as it is safe for just about anything and lasts a very long time. They even stack nicely thanks to the small recess in the bottom....I will buy another 6 here soon....Thanks!
Nice ammo cans in new condition. Seals are solid which makes waterproof long term storage viable. Very tight to get open or closed which makes for a little pull required but you know it is sealed against anything. Cool.
Good box for ammo storage
The price was right, and the delivery was fast, combined with an ammo order. The finish of the box is a bit rough. It looks like the paint was still wet when the box was latched. Had to break the paint to open the box. For storing ammo it doesn't need to be pretty.
As always LG does not disappoint. These came quickly, and in excellent (brand new) condition. These cans from my exp. will fit 1200 RNDS of 5.56x45, 1500 rounds of 9mm to give you an idea of the size. When opening they make a suction sound, so you can tell they really are are tight. Very nice, will be purchasing 10-20 more.
Can't Beat Blackhawk
These are Blackhawk ammo cans made in USA. They are the best you will find. You hear the vacuum release when you open the can, seal is nice and tight. LG shipped asap for a fair price and I got them in a few days. Thank you..................
Better than advertised...
These cans are brand new! You can't beat the price anywhere...I have spent time checking.
Your ammunition will be protected from water and the elements in these cans...use a humidity absorption packet in each can to stop corrosion and damage to your ammo due to moisture. Open the cans and air the can out if the odor of paint bothers you.
Lube the rubber seal/lid gasket with non-petroleum grease as it will extend the life of the seal and make it easier to open the can.
Great storage container for ammo and whatever!
This ammo can easily meets all my storage requirements, even though it has been shown in the video to be non bullet proof. However, the question still remain in my mind. Is it "SQUIRREL PROOF?"
Great Product for the price
Great product. Great Price.
I bough 12. A very few more pain drips than on other cans, but it's an ammo can, not a car.
100% FUNCTIONAL with a PERFECT SEAL
Leave the lids open for 24-48 hours to get rid of the paint smell. They are brand new and freshly painted.
To easily remove the sticker on the side, leave them in the sun for a bit or get your wife's hair dryer, on high heat, 15-20 seconds on the inside of the can behind the sticker, 10-15 seconds on the outside on the sticker. Slowly peel it off without any trace of adhesive left on the can.
Brand new ammo cans all in brand new condition. Much less expensive than the other sites offering the same product or even used ammo cans. I lubricated the seals with petroleum-free grease (from Ace) using an acid brush. Will probably add an extra 50 years to the life of the can.
I bought two of these to secure my ammo from curious little fingers and am totally pleased with them. They are top quality and when fitted with some locking hardware very tight and secure. I plan on buying two more. Highly recommended.
I'll buy more !!
I ordered the case (better price) and received exactly what was described. A box full of brand new 50Cal ammo cans. No problems, no damage to the shipping box and as well packed as the individual cans were, no damage to any of the ammo cans. If you need more than a few, this is the way to go. Lucky Gunner just turns the shipment around, from the manufacturer to the customer.
Thanks Lucky Gunner...
Excellent ammo cans!
I was very surprised when I first received these cans at how solid and well-made they are, given the low price that I paid for them. So after I ordered six of them I ordered another three for ammunition I recently ordered. Both orders arrived ahead of when I expected them. Thank you Lucky Gunner!
50 Cal M2A1 Cans
I have purchased these at many locations but have found the pricing on Lucky Gunner to be better than the rest of the locations THANK YOU LUCKY GUNNER. The product arrived quickly and as promised. They are being put to good use currently.
Good can, annoying sticker on the side
Good ammo can with solid construction and is a good value.
However, Blackhawk put a sticker on the side which is impossible to peel off without lots of WD40 and patience. This should have an easier sticker to remove.
I am very impressed with the quality and storing capacity
I was very surprised that the cans were brand new, very durable, and provide an airtight seal. I ordered numerous boxes along with 12 gauge ammunition. I was also surprised they can easily store various sized calibers in one can. This helped organize/inventory my stockpile. In addition, shipment was fast and I will definitely use “Lucky Gunner” in the future. My only complaint (not their fault) is that my gun/ammo safe is not large enough.
Received this can along with a bit of ammo today and I am seriously impressed with the quality. Can I give it six stars in that category? Really folks this cannot be beat. I stopped in at a local sporting goods store today as well to pick up some more ammo that was on sale and they had a comparable can for $7.00 more. So my takeaway is that when you visit LG for some ammo just plop one or two of these in your cart as well. The shipping cost didn't change much at all so you are still way ahead of any competition on cost and quality. I will be buying more of these without a doubt.
Great for Bulk Storage
My ratings are for 50 caliber cans generally. They are perfect for buying ammo in bulk and storing it as a hedge against shortages and price hikes. I recently made a video about long-term storage using these types of cans, including a humidity test: https://youtu.be/8IvGEx1cxbg
Excellent product-no faults at all.
I really enjoy using these ammunition cans for my ammo storage. Really, there is no other way to correctly store your ammunition and other supplies too. Brand new cans which are very durable and provide an airtight seal. Numerous boxes of ammunition can be stored in one can. Shipment was fast and I will buy more.
Exactly what I was looking for
As others have stated these boxes or great for storing and protecting ammo. I ordered five to see what they were like, and I am sure I will be ordering more as the need arises. I, too, put silica packets in the boxes for additional protection from moisture.
Blackhawk 50 Cal M2A1 Brand New Ammo Can
A fine Can !! Received 5 of the 50 Cal M2A1 Brand New Ammo Cans were great quality, nice gaskets, good paint job. Sure can't go wrong with this can for the price. The shows around here are getting $21+ for can of much lesser used quality. Thanks for the great deal Lucky Gunner !!!
Another Happy Customer
I would have bought the cans sooner if the product description included that they are Made in the USA. Very happy to have found these at an excellent price and at Lucky Gunner. This is my second purchase from LG and they have been a pleasure to do business with.
I'm glad I've taken steps to preserve ammo quality...
I ordered a dozen ammo cans with the intent of storing some of my cartridges longer term. The cans do have high quality seals around the perimeter. After filling them I added packages of desiccant (like those that come in pill bottles).
For your planning purposes, I found that I could fit 700 rounds (35 boxes of 20 rnds each) of 7.62 x 39 in each can. Alternately, I easily fit 170 rounds of 2-3/4" 12 ga or 1000 rounds of 9mm in a can.
The dozen cans I bought were well packaged and arrived quickly in perfect shape.
Value and Performance I guess will be judged by time...though I have no reason to doubt they won't earn 5 stars, depending on the seals and how well they hold up, yet I can tell you the apparent Quality is excellent.
Will Order More of These!
I've ordered 5 of these from Lucky Gunner and they are absolutely the best! No dents or scratches and arrive wrapped in a box unblemished.
The ONLY downside to these ammo cans is the sticker that's affixed to the side. Carefully and S-L-O-W-L-Y peel the sticker and it will all come off without having to use any Goo Be Gone.
These cans are awesome!
Great Ammo Cans!
I bought 2 of these 50 Cal ammo cans and they were awesome. All new, no scratches or dents and the lids were perfectly sealed. Got 1000 rounds of .223 with stripper clips to fit into one can.
Just bought 2 more for my .308 and they too were flawless when shipped. Can't go wrong with these...
Great ammo can, but you have to play Tetris
Ammo can: Good construction and seal... sealed itself shut in the FedEx truck due to the cold weather where I live. FYI: It can hold 10 boxes of Armscor 230gr .45ACP FMJ (http://www.luckygunner.com/armscor-45-acp-ammo-for-sale-45acp230fmjarmscor-1000) or 22 boxes of PMC 115gr 9mm FMJ (http://www.luckygunner.com/9mm-115-gr-fmj-pmc-1000-rounds), both with a little empty space.
Lucky Gunner: First non-ammo purchase from Lucky Gunner. Great service (shipping) as always. Wouldn't hesitate to buy again if they have something I was looking for.
When they say brand new they mean it not even a scratch or chip on the paint. Seals are perfect and definately 100% air tight. If you've been to a gun show lately and see the dented, banged up, rusted out cans you won't believe these for a few dollars LESS yes less with shipping than they are getting at the shows. Can't go wrong.
great can...crappy label.
Fantastic can, great deal. Just be aware that Blackhawk has decided to slap a sticky, not easily removed label on the side. Be prepared with plastic scrapers and lighter fluid to get your brand new can looking right.
Good can, good value
What can you say about these cans that hasn't already been said? Solid, airtight, water tight (at least rain tight), etc. The main attraction for a new batch of 8 was the good price and fast service from Lucky Gunner. The only, very small, issue was that they had obviously been recently painted over. All stuck the first time opening and smelled of fresh paint but not obnoxiously so. No big deal. Satisfied and I will buy from them again.
Top Notch Again!
Excellent ammo storage!
Tight seals/gaskets, YES, that's what you want for ammo storage, if you want it ready to go when you need it.
Medical grade silicone works extremely well without the issues of petroleum based lubricants and the adverse long term effects on seals/gaskets.
Ordered another one on 12/28/14 and it arrived this afternoon (12/30/14).
LG, you did it again, Top Notch,
Another great product from LG!
Ordered these to store my 'spare' ammo (if there is such a thing!) for the range. I've been ordering the MBI bags of 9mm and 40mm 1000 count (another GREAT deal!), and I was able to put all thousand of each into a box of their own, and still had room for my maglula! I threw in a couple of packets of desiccant, the kind that you can get in shoe boxes or packed in with lots of things nowadays, and with the great seal these have on them, Know that my ammo will be in good shape if I don't get to the range for a bit.
I would recommended these to anyone looking for great storage...not just for ammo but for anything you want protected. The cans are brand new with a nice and tight rubber gasket seal, and I could detect the 'fresh paint' smell when I opened the box they were delivered in. Got these about 3 days after I ordered, which is great speed, but seems to be the 'norm' with LG!
Thanks LG and I know I'll be ordering more of these! Keep up the great work!
As advertised. Clean with no defects. Seal in
great shape. You can almost fit 1000 rnds
of PMC 5.56 without taking them out of the
boxes. I think I was 100 rounds short.
So far everything from lucky gunner has
been delivered earlier then expected. Packaged
well. And great quality.
I will continue purchasing from LG.
Excellent Ammo Cans
I bought two of these and couldn't be happier. Stores nearly all of the 1,000 rounds of .223 ammo with stripper clips and cardboard boxes. The cans were flawless, no rust on bottoms and were factory fresh with airtight seals. Will order more of these as they are the best I've seen.
Very nice box
I used it to store some ammo that would not fit in my safe. Took many boxes of 9mm. Good seal. Very sturdy box. Would like it if it had a latch for a lock. I used a gun lock to lock it which worked just fine. Very happy with purchase
Excellant value - exactly as advertised.
Bought one a while back; very good product.
When they went on sale again, had to stock up and ordered 5 more.
Best way to store your ammo and keep it fresh and dry.
Great service and fast delivery.
Lucky Gunner is the only place to get ammo and supplies.
I like to use these ammo cans for ammo storage. I bought from LG because locally they want up to $10 more per can. Great product at an excellent price. I intend to get more. These cans seal well, but a little silicone spray on the gasket will help with opening them.
Brand new condition, very smelly on the inside of paint or rubber. Will Hold three 180rd Range Packs of Red Army 7.62 standing vertically left in their box with room for some loose 20rd boxes of 7.62 along the top. Some of the fastest shipping I've seen.
Up until now have only bought plastic ammo cans. They work fine, but the new Mil Spec can is perfect. I'll be using these cans in less than ideal conditions, and I have no doubt they will hold up just fine. I'll be ordering more of these now.
Mil spec M2A1 ammo cans costing less than surplus
I have found these (10) ammo cans to be far superior to any of the surplus ammo cans I have purchased on other sites. The price, quality, packaging and fast shipping will have me coming back for more.
Super buy on high quality ammo cans
These ammo cans are incredible. I bought 12 cans and they are mil-spec all the way. They are brand new. I closely inspected the cans when they arrived (with flashlight and my trusty reading glasses) looking closely at the seals and inspecting the cans inside and out looking for any rust or imperfections. As I said earlier they are brand new and perfect. The packaging was excellent with each can being separated from the other cans with cardboard linings. I was tired of paying more for used imperfect cans so I bought all I think I'll ever need. I coated the seals with Silicone grease (from Ace HW) and I believe that they will be handed down to my grand kids. I got the 90% silicone grease because it contains no petroleum products. I would avoid lubricating the seals with oil (as mentioned above) since petroleum products will slowly dissolve rubber seals, or so I've heard.
I now own 10 will be getting another 10 these cans are great. Don't up the price now. This is one of the fairest prices we have ever gotten on a good product. We thank you much. Now if we can just get you to lower the prices on AMMO? Thank you William
Great cans at a good price
These are all I use to store my ammo in! There are lower priced cans out there but I found LG to be the fastest and most reliable and shipping costs are the best. I choose to go with a slightly higher price on the can and lower shipping costs and great customer service.
2 very good, 2 needed a touch-up
Bought 4 M2A1 Ammo cans, 2 were excellent.....but 2 had very sharp edges on the bottom welds. They also had a few bad paint areas. Not a big problem, sanded off the sharp spots and painted them. I just didn't really expect to need to do this. I compared these boxes to a few I picked up while on active duty, They are Exactly the same cans we were issued by the USMC, High Quality, Stout, and Genuine issue. I understand that issued ammo cans are considered a one time use container, this might be why they had the flaws. If you are looking for "Real" ammo cans, I recommend you purchase these. You can't beat the price for what you get.
Great Cans for the Price
I bought these to store my ammo, because they are water tight, and easy to organize. They are great for a number of tasks as well. I have several to carry my tools in and items I don't want to get wet. Can't beat the price for a quality product, much cheaper than others I have seen.
Once in awhile it works out.....
it's rare when one orders something and it's as good or better than you hoped......lets face it...we have all been screwed by false advertising ....This is NOT the case here......a great product delivered very quickly ...I bought five ...an act of faith which , in this case , turn out to be a good call......wish everything was this simple..........Thank you , Lucky Gunner.........you done good !
I wish I bought more!
These ammo cans are the best way hands down to store and transport ammo! If you buy loose bulk ammo like I do, these cans are a superior option versus keeping ammo in the cardboard box. They're water tight and easy to carry. They're great for range gear as well as gun cleaning supplies. I even filled one up with ice and water and used it as a makeshift cooler!
Great product at a very good price.
I use these to store ammunition, as they are water and air tight. I have purchased several from Lucky Gunner, and each has been in new condition. They stack securely, and are strong. As I buy additional ammunition, I will buy more of these for storage.
Just like I remember
This ammo can was brand new and was exactly like the ones I used when I was in the military. So versatile. The only "complaint" is that being metal it's a bit heavier than the plastic versions. Fill it with ammo and it is really hefty. But no worry about it breaking, and it keeps the ammo sealed tight safe from the environment.
Accsessibility of ammo
As always, I received my order in 2 days. The cost was way below any of Lucky Gunner's competitor's. In addition every caliber of ammo for handgun and rifle. I have handguns from 9 mm up S&W .50 mag. For long guns I have .22 up .50 bmg. Another words Lucky Gunner has every caliber I need in stock all the time.
