    Default 50 Cal box Ammo lock pins

    Hey folks.

    I developed a product and have started selling them. I figured I'd put them up here and see if there's an interest.

    Back story.

    I had a guy come into my shop wondering if it would be cheaper to have some 50 cal ammo can locks made rather than buy them for 10.00 on ebay. (FYI, if you know anything about machine shops, this is seldom true) So after looking some of them up (and being thoroughly unimpressed with what I found) I developed my own version and ran some off.
    The first pics are a 1018 steel version that I had zinc plated. I've since upgraded to 304 SS.
    It will involve drilling a hole in your can. I provide a Santoprene washer and SS nut for a tight seal.

    Here they are. These are the older version.

    Here you can see the two side by side. The differences besides the material are the bevel I added to the backside to keep stuff from catching as you
    put stuff in and out and I widened the thread relief so there would be more adjustment to center it to the hole in the latch.

    You do know that those links above allow us to see your entire photo album, not just the individual photos, right?

    I got nothing to hide bro. It's mostly my grilling pics and stupid **** I collect off the net.
    Thanks for the heads up though.

    I like the design, I hope you don't mind that I pirate it for my own personal use but what are the bacon wrapped things?😄

    If you got the skills......
    You'll have to be more specific. I wrap a lot of stuff in bacon.
    There's ABT's, Bacon wrapped pineapple, bacon wrapped fatty, bacon wrapped porkloin, bacon wrapped meatloaf and pigshots.
    Oh and onion bombs.

    Never thought of locking my ammocans. How many of you guys are doing this? Would these work on the 20mm boxes 'cause that's mostly what I have.
    When seconds count the police are only minutes away.

    I don't lock mine, but I suppose there could be instances where I would want to, like driving to the range and due to my vehicle configuration, can't separate firearms from ammo (probably a NYS thing).

    Some states require ammo to be locked up. Even though the can be easily picked up and stolen. It meets the requirements for it and will keep the kiddies from playing with the shiny boolits.
    I got mixed results when I searched 20mm cans. If it looks like this https://www.bing.com/images/search?q...verlay&first=1
    Yes, it will work. Basically, if it has a snap down latch like the 50 cal. and has 7/16 of clearance under the latch, it will work.

    Onion bombs were quite the hit.
    I seasoned some ground beef. Cut some onions in half and popped out the middle leaving 2 layers of onion and keeping the matched pairs together.
    Filled with the beef. Put em back together and wrapped in bacon. Held in place with a tooth pick. Grilled to an internal temp of 165.
