Mil-Spec means not manufactured for the military. I would want to see one in person to see the quality. If actually made to military specifications, could be a good deal.

I ended up buying a couple this season when the local army/navy was out of stock.

I compared the materials and welds to genuine military cans I've purchased from surplus stores and could not find a difference.

The only difference I could find is the paint. Cabela's paint is cheaper and softer.
