looking for plastic ammo cans

If anyone has any leads on this items I would greatly appreciate it. Practicly everywhere I have looked, they are sold out. I cannot find them locally so I will have to buy online. I intend to use them as side cases on the strom.

G.I. 25MM Plastic ammo can



Thanks for looking!

[SIZE="2"][SIZE="1"]DL650K7 - Blue
Madstad Bracket = Awesome!
Emgo Mirrors = Work and Look Great
Cortech Sport Tailbag = Very nice
Cortech 10L Tankbag = Another nice piece
MSR Dominator ATV Hi Bars = Give the bike a whole different feel
Suzuki Gel Seat = Best so far but still not 100% for me
Bestem (Ebay) 2012 42L Top Case = Best bang for the buck!

Thanks guys, I know they are a bit narrow but I think they would be good enough for the value. I really would just like to put my laptop and work tools in there plus some extra clothes. I think they would suffice for that.

I may end up ordering from link you posted Sudzz. They are the only place I have found that has them in stock but they want $30 to ship a pair of them.

Well, if you do get them or something similar, please post a pic when you get them mounted.

Just get the solid projectile, or HE cases. The armor piercing had depleted uranium sabots.

I hope to get them but there is less chance of me posting pics... haha. i'm terrible about that. Although, if they turn out good enough, I'll want to show them off.

are you saying to get the steel ones? What does armor piercing have to do with polyethlyne cases and uranium? I dont understand? You are talking to a civilian here.

I think is he talking about the empty cases of the armor piercing ammo may be radioactive. I doubt you would see them for sale if they were though.

narrow cans = better lane splitting

ABSOLUTELY waterproof, and strong enough to hold the bike off of the ground should it happen to need it (empirically tested feature).

An inch narrower than the bar end mirrors . . .

Added bonus: hyper-aggressive drivers on 93 and 95 in Boston tend to back away after they read the labels on the cans. WEAPONS INERT, indeed.

Unanticipated consequence: Labels make US and CDN Border Patrol types highly apprehensive and curious when crossing the border in either direction.

SW-MOTEC racks are robust, well made, expensive and worth it.
