Replacement gaskets for 20 mm rocket boxes?

Does anyone know where can you buy replacement gaskets for 20 mm rocket boxes? Is there another solution like a specific type of weather sealing?

I've searched this site and around the web and came up empty. Thank you!

I think saw some at an army surplus store in Seattle. I think it was in Seattle. You should give them a call.

The guys at Southwest Washington Surplus may be able to help with this too. I know that they have a big shipment of rocket boxes coming in soon and he has been sourcing Gaskets and new boxes as well. Full disclosure...he is my brother.

When we had seals go bad we demoted the cans to warehouse storage of stuff that didn't need to be waterproof. You know, like valves and D Rings and Silverware and stuff.

I wouldn't spend much time looking for a gasket; not sure they can be replaced with original gasket anyway. Might try closed cell weather stripping of the right dimensions, or O Ring stuff, or maybe some of that gasket inna tube stuff.

Or, you can switch lids around if you got a bad can with a good lid or sumpin.

Or, for $20 you can just buy another one. I mean, how much time you gonna spend looking before it costs more to just replace?
