In Stock 5.56 mm & 7.62 NATO Small Arms Ammunition. Sale being completed, incuded as illustrative example only.

 

This ammunition was produced in 2007 for sales and demonstrations, but was not needed to generate further sales and is thus still available. It is also very current ammunition, technically speaking effectively new, stored in pristine condition.

It is produced to the correct US Mil Spec and ISO 9001 / 2000 standards which is for both production and development.

 

The tracer has been removed to provide the following offer of U.S. Importable ammunition as one lot only outlined below, or we can re-insert the tracer with full payment for a military customer with valid permits. As this represents only 19 pallets in one 20ft sea container, this is only available as one lot only with no part lots. We also now have a separate U.S. BATF # 6 import permit for US import without tracer as shown below.

The pricing is fixed at 2007 prices and are not repeatable in 2018 production, and not negotiable for any further lower prices. Qualified buyers with the necessary licences and the ability to purchase and pay for this ammunition may inquire for an offer. .

Special Note: This packaging is for soldiers to carry in the field without M-19A1 can for lighter weight on the bipod mounted MAG-58/M-240, MG-42/MG1/MG3 Series or the M-60 or to be stripped out of the PVC combat Packs for loading in the M-134 Mini-gun.

 

N.B. The thinking behind this configuration is that it allows the soldier in the field to carry sealed water proofed packaged belted ammunition which is combat ready and can be easily strapped tight to webbing or back packs (to avoid bouncing like a pair of binoculars on your chest), yet ripped out in emergencies and used immediately without the extra weight and clutter of metal ammunition cans. This is a special configuration that we have made for Infantry use and also for the mini-gun to avoid the extra expense and bulk of M-9A1 cans.
