Surplus Army M19A1 7.62X51mm NATO M80 (.30 cal) Ammo Cans $10ea

7.62X51 ammo cans in very good condition

7.62X51 ammo cans in very good condition

These are surplus ammo cans straight from the White Sands Missile Range here in New Mexico.  From the designation on the can, you can see that these cans originally contained standard M80 ball cartridges in M13 linked belts.  The can would have contained two 100-round belts in cartons inside of the can.

Model M19A1
Dimensions: 10″ x 6.5″ x 3.5″
Steel ammunition chest
Rubber seal
Lay flat carrying handle
Hinged lid
Latch closure (can be locked with additional parts)

These cans are in very good condition and the seals on them are in excellent condition.  The ammo in these cans would have been recently shot such that the cans are still in near mint condition. These can be used for ammo storage or any other items you wish to store in an air, humidity, and water-tight manner. You can depend on the can and seal to last many years.

The cans are available for sale at our store in Rio Rancho and for those on the south end of town, in Belen. They are reasonably priced at $10.00 each, tax included.

These cans are generally known as .30 cal cans as they were originally designed to hold belts of .30 caliber machine gun bullets.

The 7.62X51mm NATO round was developed in the 1950s for the M14 rifle and the M60 machine gun.  Since these cartridges were on linked belts that means they were intended for machine gun use, not rifle use.  Very few of these are used in rifles any longer as the M14 rifle was superseded by the M16 which used the 5.56X45 NATO round.  However the 7.62mm round known in the civilian world as the .308 Winchester is still used in sniper rifles and for other special purposes in addition to machine gun use.

It was discovered in Vietnam that the M14 rifle was too long and heavy for jungle warfare and the size and weight of the cartridges limited the number of rounds that could be carried.  The commies had the same issue with their AK-47 ammo but they never wised up and still carry the bigger, heavier cartridges.  This chart helps show the comparison in what a soldier could carry:

Rifle Cartridge Cartridge weight Weight of loaded magazine 10 kg (22#) ammo load
M14 7.62×51mm 393 grains (25.5 g) 20 rds @ 0.68 kg 14 mags / 280 rds
M16 5.56×45mm 183 grains (11.9 g) 20 rds @ 0.3 kg 33 mags / 660 rds
AK-47 7.62×39mm 281 grains (18.2 g) 30 rds @ 1.2 kg* 8 mags / 240 rds

(*AK-47 magazines are much heavier than M14 and M16 magazines)

The 7.62X51mm cartridge remained the main machine gun round well in to the 1990s but for light machine gun use, has been replaced by the 5.56X45 NATO round in widespread use of the M249 SAW.  The 7.62 is still used in the M60E4, the M240 and by the Germans in their HK21 and MG3.

We just got in some 40mm cans into stock at our Belen location.  They are selling for $20 each

WWI, WWII and later US Military Surplus Items Going on Sale

I have begun posting some of the items for sale on two sales sites and indicated I had other items to sell so I thought I would refer people here to see all of the items at once, easier than through the online sales sites.  The majority of the items haven’t been priced as I need to determine fair market value to determine my selling price from, usually less than what they sold for elsewhere.  I am accepting offers on the various items or the information from those who have some interest.

M1 Carbine 30rd magazines, dust covers, sling, oiler, bandoleer kit, etc.

M1 Carbine 30rd magazines, dust covers, sling, oiler, bandoleer kit, etc.

This is a set of M1/M2 carbine accessories.  Starting upper left.  M3 Flash hider made at the Springfield Armory, very few real ones available.  Then a new old stock sling and oiler, probably repro.  Then four 30rd mags.  The one in the bag is made in Taiwan, the others have no identification, just like authentic ones.  Then a bracket to connect two 30-round mags together.  In the next row, A M4 bayonet in a M8A1 scabbard.  The leather handle models were made by Utica Cutlery in 1944 and 1945. The blade looks like it was never actually used and certainly wasn’t sharpened, or if it was, so professionally  it looks new.  It has scabbard wear from being drawn out, but that’s it.  The SL8A1 scabbard is the second version with the hooks for the web belt and was issued at the time the bayonets were.  Made by PWH.  Next is a two dual 30rd magazine pouches marked 1951, included are four new mags in their original wrapper.  Two opened, two sealed.  Next, in the bag are original rubber dust covers that went over the end of the mag when in the pouch.  Next is an aftermarket steel ventilated handguard, so although not authentic, handy for keeping the barrel cool when you run your M2 at full auto.  Next is a bandoleer kit.  Contains one bandoleer, and the spoons for your rounds, and the cardboard that is inserted in the bandoleer to keep things neat and tidy.  It is marked “Du Lacher 1955”.

WWII web belt with carbine mag pouch and two 15rd mags

WWII web belt with carbine mag pouch and two 15rd mags

This is an early WWII war web belt as it is khaki-colored before they eventually darkened to olive drab.  The belt is stamped “US” and has a 40 on it.   With the belt is the matching khaki dual mag pouch for 15rd magazines and included are two used magazines, probably the actual ones from WWII.  The pouch is marked Avery 1943.

WWII soldier's equipment, pot helmet, shovel, bayonet, web belt, pouch, and canteen

WWII soldier’s equipment, pot helmet, shovel, bayonet, web belt, pouch, and canteen

This assortment starts with a early “pot” helmet.  It only has the chin strap on one side and has some rust mainly on one side of the interior.  Next is the same M4 bayonet from the carbine grouping.  Next is a WWII trenching shovel, Ames 1944 and the matching cover, St. Joseph Tent and Awning, also 1944.  I suspect an original pair.  Next is the insulated canteen bag, the canteen cup insert, LF&C 1918, that thing made it since WWI !!!, and the canteen, Vollrath 1945.  Ya, it has a ding…more than one 🙂  In front of that is a later WWII web belt in the olive drab compared to the khaki one above.  This has a small pouch, maybe it was their first aid kit which was one bandage and a syringe full or morphine.  Sorry, no bandage included.  The pouch appears to be 1952, the belt has something printed on it and someone with better eyes and imagination could maybe read it.

Post-WWII web belt, canteen, bayonet, mag/grenade pouch, and field bag

Post-WWII web belt, canteen, bayonet, mag/grenade pouch, and field bag

Last are some odds and ends, mostly Vietnam era.  First a canteen marked 1991, probably the newest thing here.   Then a M7 Bayonet made by Imperial and a M10 scabbard, NEW.   The web belt is a model LC-2 made at the Arkansas Industries for the Blind.  M-16 triple magazine pouch with grenade pouches on the side.  Says “US” on the front, “06” on the back, but I don’t think 2006.  (Grenades not included)  The Combat Field Pack M-1961.  It has a canvas bag, but there is an interior weather resistant cover that pulls out and then covers up everything inside and “seals” the top.
