Thread: Gun Powder Flask

  1. #1

    Gun Powder Flask

    I started reading the Vintage Powder Cans post, and realized I do have something to contribute or at least something some may want to see.

    I've had this Powder Can so a good number of years now. It has sat on my shelf and I never really give it much thought. Just a nice addition to the reloading area.

    It's in great condition. Clean inside, could be used again tomorrow. Really has only two moving parts. The knurled knobs for adding Powder to the Can and for adding Powder to the gun. Thought you may want to see it.

    Is there a name or something written in the middle of the last picture?

    Looks like a 1919/1917 Browning oil can
    350 Legend, imitation is the highest form of flattery. Aww, Thanks Winchester!

    No there's no writing on the can. That's just some gunk that been there to long. Does look like writing though.
    Oil can.....no wonder it's so clean inside.

    Well, this is great news. It goes perfect with my M1 Garand Oil/Cleaning Rod kit. I like to have the complete sets of equipment issued with a weapon if possible.
    Now I'll start looking for Luger and P38 issued eguipment.
    Thank you for the clarification.
