I'm looking at a NATO 9mm Ammo Box to retro fit on my Vulcan to hold the ammo belt. Dimensions are 10 by 5 by 7(lwh). Good Idea? My worry is that the ammo box( it's metal ) will make one side so heavy on the Vulcan that it will become so unbalanced that I won't even be able to hold it steady. Maybe weights on the other side? By the way,by holding it with my hands it feels around 7-10lbs. Also what do you think I should offer the guy at the Army Surplus store for the box? He wants $25.00. Any thoughts, suggestions, and comments are appreciated. Thanks.

EDIT: Sorry for the concept thread. Didn't do my research.

What I think is that you're twelve.
Concept threads are typically extremely hated, not that it's my place to say this.

Worrying about your Vulcan being unwieldy is the silliest thing I have read in the past 24 hours.

Lucian: do not back-seat moderate. The report button is a more functional method of summoning the wrath of the moderators.

But you're right of course: this is a concept thread, which is not allowed. Build something and THEN post about it, not the other way around.
