Went by a local gunshop today and picked up a 30 cal ammo can that is the older ww2 style. Funny thing is the end had an extension on it that had a spring loaded lever in it. Some kind of special mounting or something I guess. Any ideas on where to look for info? Or anyone here know what it was for?

EDIT: Charlie, Trap, and Militaryguy all nailed it. The can is the M1A1 can. Thanks for the help everyone!

Now, how much is this thing worth? Should I try to sell it, or just use it as a regular ammo can.....think i'll list it on GB and let someone else get it that can actually use it.
