Most over priced useless item for WWII Jeep.
I had over 25 NOS in the 80s, they sold out fast, but they are awkward to mount a weapon on and you have to mutilate a good Jeep to install.

I sold mine for $425.00 complete, and incomplete ones fetch $700-$1000 now. I have one new Ammo Box bracket left that clamps to the .30 Barrel.

It is up for trade as it is the kind of rare thing that shakes loose rare items I need. It is made toadapt a special .30 Ammo Can to the barrel of the air cooled .30. I may sell if I get unough money.
