well I believe that the ammo itself is still vaccum-sealed.

That is certainly rust on the weapon and I believe that's rust on the clips as well.

well, the ammo is stored in metal cans with a rubber gasket to seal the lid. But we all know that a rubber seal from WWII won't keep that ammo air tight.

We used that corroded ammo problem (salt water spray environment) as a nifty excuse to test fire the guns every day. We broke out clean ammo every day. We'd use up the old stuff on fun "mad minutes."

Gheeeesh........drop and give me twenty just for posting such a picture ..........:o)

I suspect with the current threat scenerio that ammo see's more half loads in the light of day vs half ass attempts to "look" mean with ammo sealed away in a can.

That ammo is fugly but serviceable........barely !

Stay safe !
