VERY LIMITED QUANTITIES – HARD TO FIND ANTIQUE AMMO CANS!
One of our most historically awesome products! The 50 PRE-WWII is patent pending cigar humidor built using an authentic M17 .50 Cal Ammunition Chest first issued in the 1930s and early 1940s as a replacement for the previous wooden .50 caliber ammo box. Designed to carry 100 round belts to a position where they would be fed into a .50 caliber machine gun such as the Browning M2 HB.
Made from sheet metal with exterior measurements of 12.25″ long x 6.5″ deep x 8.25″ tall. Once lined with Spanish Cedar wood, the interior measures 11.25″ long x 5″ deep x 6.75″ tall. Has 380 cubic inches of volume and is rated to hold 150 cigars (measured using Corona size 5.5″ x 42 ring gauge). For optimal organization and to ensure adequate air circulation, we recommend storing approximately 55 cigars inside.
We’ve added a rubber gasket to the inside of the top lid to help achieve an air tight seal. Numerous options such as removable top trays, lid linings and hardware accessories are available.

The Pre-WW2 50 size Ammodor is built using a US Military pre-WW2 era .50 cal size ammunition can. They are nearly 100 years old and genuine military surplus ammo boxes that have been previously used by the men and women of our US Armed Forces.
The interior sides and bottom are lined with precision milled 1/4″ thick Spanish Cedar. It is the preferred lining for high-end humidors since it offers natural protection from tobacco worms and mold. Joints feature beautiful 45 degree angled cuts.
All ammo cans are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized prior to becoming an Ammodor – they will not ruin your cigars with harmful odors! Learn more about our cleaning process.
Ammodors believes in giving back to the men and women that put their lives on the line to protect our Country and our freedom. We make ongoing product and monetary donations to non-profit organizations such as Hope For The Warriors®, USO, Humidors For Heroes and many others.
Every Ammodor is handcrafted right here in the good ole USA. Nearly all of our vendors are local Veteran owned small business. We have a “green” manufacturing process and nearly 100% of all waste from production is recycled or repurposed.
Please note: Ammodors are built by hand, made to order. Please allow at least 3 business days for production of your Ammodor prior to shipment. Contact us with rush orders.
WW2 Ammodor ammo can humidors are built using vintage surplus ammo cans that have been proudly used by our Armed Forces. Due to this fact, the outside of the can may have minor scratches or dings and will have light exterior rust.Exterior markings and stencils may vary. Frankly, we think that’s what makes Ammodors so cool! Ammodors are tough, combat tested and look bad ass! If you’re looking for a “pretty” little cigar humidor, look somewhere else.
BEWARE of cheap humidor knockoffs that have copied our products! Since 1998, Ammodors are the original ammo can humidor and are trademarked and patent pending. Imitators use inferior lumber instead of real Spanish Cedar, use cheap veneer instead of solid wood or have poor building techniques and crappy hardware.
