Product Description

During both World War II and the Korean War, the U.S. Navy 40 MM MK-2 Shell Casing played a crucial role in naval warfare. Specifically designed to hold 40 mm projectiles, these casings were utilized in anti-aircraft defense and other naval artillery operations. The sturdy brass construction of the casing allowed it to endure the high pressure and temperatures that came with firing, while the flared base enhanced the stability and reduced recoil during operation. Throughout the years, the U.S. Navy 40 MM MK-2 Shell Casings have become highly regarded military memorabilia items and a favored choice for repurposing in creative and artistic ways. These casings are frequently displayed in military museums or held in private collections, serving as a poignant reminder of the bravery and sacrifice of the U.S. Navy during this critical period in history.
