Better than expected.
December 31, 2010
I had found these locally, but they were in pretty bad condition. The picture shown here seemed to be in about the same condition. I figured that if I was getting them shipped, at least the lids would fit correctly. WOW - was I surprised when I opened the box. Product received is in much better shape than the ones shown. No rust, lid seals in excellent condition, very little over-paint and the decals came off with little effort. I am very pleased with my purchase. I have already recommended to others.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value
Excellent - Hand Picked Surplus
June 02, 2007
Ordered 10 of the 20mm cans. Altrec's price was great. I use them for tool storage in my garage. No rust, no dents, no excess spray paint. Better than others, no question.
Great storage boxes
October 22, 2010
These boxes were in great shape with only a few labels painted over. The seal was intact and worked properly. There were no dents, dings and no rust. They work great for keeping moisture out of camping gear. They would also work great to store food because the scent could not get out and the critters could not get in.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Great value
good quality rocket boxes

I ordered seven, all were in great shape and came right away. Cota was very helpful.
20mm ammo cans
March 20, 2011
shipped promptly, condition was very good, only needed label gum and painted over areas cleaned, seals were perfect as well as inside. will repaint a different color so outside condition wasn't a problem (0% rust). will buy again when I need more.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value
20mm Ammo Cans
April 01, 2011
Their clean, not dented, and new condition ammo boxes. Have multiple uses on your raft or boat and will keep items dry. Ready to paint if needed. Quick free freight. Best boxes for the value.Pros: Great value

I bought two 20mm ammo cans for use with an eco-safe toilet system. The cans were in much better condition than I expected and the rubber seals work very well as I submerged them both in a large tub full of water and there were no leaks.
Good product, good price.

I am very please with my purchase of the 20mm Ammo Can. I had tried for some time to find one in decent condition but without success until I found Altrec.com. The sales person was knowledgeable and very helpfull with the transaction. Shipping was very fast and VERY reasonable. I look forward to doing more business with the efficient and courteous people at Altrec. These ammo cans have MANY uses and the one I got is in almost new condition. Thanks guys.
20mm Ammo Cans
September 30, 2010
I ordered 2 of these in order to take advantage of the free shipping offer. They arrived about 1 week after I ordered them and they are in perfect condition. The outsides have some DOT stickers that had to be spray painted over in order to make the cans legal for transport but structurally they are in like-new condition inside and out and the lid seals are in perfect condition. This is a great buy!Pros: Build quality, Great value
Ordered 3 ammo cans, all rusty, 1 so dented, unusable
October 10, 2007
Disappointed in my purchase, I ordered 3 ammo cans, I understood would be in top condition. 1 is in fair condition, one poor, but at least they will seal. Third was so dented that it does not seal. All are pretty rusted.
September 01, 2010
As Jeff said, they're in good shape but do have some spray paint and partially torn off haz labels. The gaskets were in good shape and the cans weren't dented. Couldn't give them 4 stars though, got some from a friend and those were nearly new, no paint or labels. Guess I was hoping these would be as good but they weren't.

Decent Surplus cans
June 27, 2010
My 4 were decent cans and better than the picture. None dented, very little surface rust, normal paint over. Excellant interior and all sealed tight. Good value for the price. Fastservice! I Would buy here again.
Best I have seen!

I just made my first purchase from Altrec and was happy with every bit of the transaction. They will be the first place I go from now on for gear.
Ideal for small gear
April 17, 2011
I was concerned that the ammo box would be pretty ratty, but was pleasantly surprised that it was in good condition. It has new seals and will hold that smaller gear that one needs access to without having to dig through a bigger container. I am also continually amazed at the quick delivery time from Altrec. They have become one of my "go to" online retailers.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value
Pictures do no justice!
August 14, 2010
Just received our rocket boxes and we were amazed at the excellent shape they are in. The seals are perfect and there's no rust at all on the boxes. No dings or dents and they even have that new car smell. Two words... "Buy them!"
July 30, 2010
These were awesome. I was a little nervous with the pictures purchasing without seeing first hand but these exceeded my expectations. No rust and the original paint inside was not even scratched. The seals were a little dry but a little armor all and back to brand new. These are a steal at this price. I have looked through much worse for $30 a piece. Definitely recommend these ammo cans! I am buying more!
First Altrec Purchase
December 06, 2010
I Couldn't Be Happier With My Rocket Boxes... They Were Way Better Than They Were Advertised... Do Not Hesitate To Buy Them... Great Product, Great Customer Service, And Fast Shipping... You Can't Beat The Price's Either... Thankyou Very Much For A Flawless Transaction... I Will Be Buying More...Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value

We bought these boxes to bolt in the back of our pickup truck for lockable and dry storage. They work great and fit perfectly in front of the wheel wells. The quality is fantastic and the price is also great. Compared to other ammo cans we have seen in Army Navy stores, we were pleasantly surprised at the condition of these boxes. I would definitely recommend them and know they will last beyond the life of our truck!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Great value
Great surplus rocket boxes
April 03, 2011
Just received my two rocket boxes. They came surprisingly fast and were in very good condition. I tried to shop them locally and the boxes were junk! After reading the reviews for ALtrec I decided to give them a try and I am very happy and will keep Altrec in my bookmarks for future gear purchases. Altrec rocks!Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value
Excellent shape!! John W

These boxes are in far better shape than represented in the picture. Three of my sons were home from deployment and commented that these are in much better shape than they get in Iraq or Afghanistan. I bought these for dry storage and waste transport. Great value!
Very good condition
February 25, 2011
These boxes are great. The condition is much better than what is shown in the photo. The seals are almost new and there is only a small bit of rust on the boxes. Also, the shipping was quick with great communication. I will be buying more soon. Thanks.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value
Very useful product at a fair price
June 10, 2010
If you need to store items in a dry environment, this item is very useful. I have 9 of these 20mm cans and the outside finish on all is in good condition (no rust), while the inside finish is very good. The lid seals are all excellent. Very pleased!
May 28, 2010
I was very excited to get these ammo cans they were practically brand new and arrived very quickly.
rocket box good
October 13, 2010
It is hard to find these things in good shape. I ordered 4 which shipped for free from altrec (and these things are heavy). All showed up without dents and without rust. Maybe I just got a good batch but they are good.Pros: Great value
February 23, 2011
I bought this item for storing a lot of ammo I have. I was not expecting them to be in any special condition but I was surprised when I received them because they looked brand new!!!! The best part of these cans is that they have a very good rubber gasket seal that helps keep moisture away from your stored items. The order was shipped very fast. I would highly recommend buying all your ammo cans from Altrec.com!!!Pros: Great design, Ease of use, Great value
Don't judge by the photo!
August 04, 2010
I read the other reviews that claim these are practically new. I couldn't be happier, they were totally right. These cans were flawless, great rubber gasket, no dents, I mean perfect. You would never know these had seen any service other than the explosives labels that were spray painted over. The cans came super quick and will be absolutely perfect for a set of motorcycle panniers. I couldn't be happier, I highly recommend these to anyone who needs a heavy duty water proof case.
