place that sells rocket boxes in Montana?

Does anybody know of a place to get rocket boxes (the army surplus kind, 19"x14.5"x8") for a decent price anywhere near Missoula MT? What is a good price for these?

Had trouble finding them here too. Got mine from altrec.com. Reasonable price.

$35 seems like a lot, but bearable if they're in decent shape. Were yours OK? Sounds like NRS sends out some that are unusable due to rust. Does anybody know what you'd pay at a large surplus store?

Can't remember what we paid - it was reasonable - Captain Bob's here in Lewistown. Seems like it was $35 or so.

I have started getting mine at a place in Vancouver, WA called Southwest Washington Surplus, I don't think they know how to price them, I get 50 Cal size for $15 in good/great shape.

Edit to include Link

This a couple years ago, i paid something like 23ea, ordered 5 to get free shipping. All were in great shape.

35 is alot, but on the other hand they're not making em any more. Supply & demand.

rocket boxes

I've seen some at the army navy downtown, and I was just at BVAC in stevi, and I'm pretty sure I saw some lying around, they also have a store across from bitteroot motors. I would check with them, and try the hunting shack or accu-arms just to see if they have some old used ones. you never know. let me know if you find some, good luck!
