M2A1 ammo can manuacturers


#1

I am trying to pin down the current suppliers of M2A1 cans.

Does anyone know the plants the codes correspond to?

I am particularly looking for “SCF” as it is the most common.

CanAm,

The code “SCF” of your M2A1 ammocan stands for “Brockway Standard Inc”., 1215 Hightower Trail bldg 100, Atlanta GA 30331 USA.

Best regards,

Rob

Thanx.

Do you have a listing of can codes?


#4

CanAm,

I don’t have a listing of can codes.

Best regards,

Rob

I found reference to the maker “SCF” in MIL-HDBK-1461A dated 1 April 1999. This publication use to be available for free download on the internet which is where I got my copy. It is possible that other “ammo can” makers can be identified in this way. However I don’t know if the handbook is still available.
