M1 Carbine Ww2 New Replica 50 Round Ammo Box - Set "a" With Wra, Lc, & Pc Labels:
Up for your consideration is a set of 3 reproduction M1 carbine 50 round ammunition boxes, withWINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS COMPANY(W.R.A.), LAKE CITY ORDNANCE PLANT(L.C.),and KINGS MILLS ORDNANCE PLANT (P.C.) labels.
Winchester Repeating Arms was the manufacturer responsible for the development of the M1 Carbine, as well as the .30 Carbine round, and did manufacture various types of small arms ammunition during WW2. However, the Lake City Ordnance Plant, owned and operated by Remington, was the firstammunition plant built that took raw materials in one end and sent finished rounds out the other. The largest percentage of carbine ammunition produced in WW2 came from Lake City, and productioncontinued well into the 1960s.The Kings Mills Ordnance Plant was also owned by Remington, and after starting with .45 ACP ammunition early in the war, was converted to carbine ammunition production in order to help meet demand. By the time the Kings Mills plant had closed in 1944, it had produced almost as much carbine ammunition as Lake City.
These cartons are identical copies of original 50 round ammunition boxes in my collection, and are the perfect finishing touch to your carbine. If you reload carbine ammunition, what better place to store your finished rounds? If you do reenacting, here's a great way to carry your blanks, or if you have a display, what better way to fill your spam can. You can even feel a little more historic at the range with your "War Baby" when you load your magazines from authentic cartons. I am the proud owner of my own 1944 NPM, and it just didn't seem right to store my ammunition in anything besidesauthenticboxes. So, I had these made.
