400 Round 7.62x51 Ammunition Cans with Feed Chute Attachment - NEW DESIGN - PICS

Location:

26 posts in this topic

   Wanted to share this with the group....A few years ago I started trying to develop a 7.62x51 Ammunition can that fits in a pack so there would be a supply for those wanting to make "Predator Packs"..mainly because there is ZERO availability for such cans right now.... Finally got the prototype done today. I contracted out to an aerospace company to make them.

   The box itself is made from Carbon Fiber and weighs only 3 pounds. It hold 400 rounds of 7.62x51 and another 100 rounds in the chute depending how long of feed chute your using. The feed Chute attachment point and all metal hardware is stainless steel. There is two dividers and also some guide ramps on the opening made from UHMW (ultra high molecular weight Polyethylene)... That material is super slick like soap...

   I hope to take this out in the coming weeks and torture test it to spot any weaknesses...Once testing is done I will be putting them in production and selling them here on the boards. All the tooling is made for them now so I should be able to crank them out.

@Shattered,

   5.56 will run with these boxes and chute as well. I believe the military iron man packs are the same as far as them running 5.56 and 7.62 in same set up.

@har1690 ,

   I do not at this point. I need to meet with the outfit I contracted to make them and figure that out once testing is done. I hope to keep them as cheap as possible.

Looks good to me. A squad defensive attachment that is quick detach to use standard belts along with Mother would make a fearsome squad for sure. And at only 36 pounds!

Still needs a bull soldier to handle it though. Probably two man crew served with second man carrying two support packs and spotting.

We completed our final testing today on these boxes. Some video below. Ran flawless all day. Now that I am confident with the design, will be offering these on the parts and accessory board soon.

How does the feed chute attach to the M240? with a plate similar to the M6O?

Any pics of the attachment?

Thanks,

BP

@BPinFL ,

   I took a 240 helicopter gun end that I got from Rick at BMG Parts and modified it to work with the ground gun. Was very simple to do. Took about an hour total. 

  Also, This feed tray with belt pawl plays an instrumental role on this set up being the belt doesn’t fall back into the chute when top cover is up.

@BPinFL,

  They are in production now. I am not sure how long till the first batch is ready but it shouldn't be long now. I have yet to determine price. As soon as I have an update I will post on this thread first.

@SVA first 10 are near completion. Will be posting them on the parts and accessories page when they are. I’ll post a reminder here on this thread too when they are. Hoping after the first run their won’t be anymore delays in production.
