    Default LC Industries Water Can Pics

    After hearing about and reading this thread, I decided to order 3 of the LC Industries Scepter Style Military Water Cans or MWC's. They were $18 bucks each with free shipping over $50, ofcourse the minimum order is $50.
    I do not have any Scepter MWC's to compare them nor have I put these to use as of yet. But here are some reference pictures, perhaps someone having a Scepter can see differences between these LCI ones and the Scepter ones.

    Stand on the side of your MWC. The scepters can take the weight of me and much much more. Theres a pic of a rig driving over one somewhere around here.

    The 2 I have are stamped "Scepter" and Made in Canada (maybe a province on that too). It's towards the bottom of one of the big sides of the can.

    As long as you have a few new cans, post if you find a good deal on mounting options! I've seen a few but nothing yet to my liking.

    Scepter on right LCI on the left. IIRC the LCI vent cap was not as leakproof as the Scepters on one of 4.. a call to LCI had a new cap shipped out immediately which fixed my issue. Good customer service.

    This has been covered several times here on the forum but its worth mentioning again. The BuyLCI MWC's are not 100% identical to a Scepter MWC, particularly the lack of vent o-ring and what seems to be a bit different plastic molding. The molding differences are a non-issue, just an indicator that these are not 'rebadges' of the Scepter products, rather similar spec products. Add a 10 cent o-ring and they are up to snuff.

    My LCI jug has been laying flat for the last month and no leaky
    A good value IMO

    Hmm..I don't know about all this. My Scepter water cans are DEFINITELY Scepters. Maybe I'm lookig in the wrong places, but mine don't have a piece of rubber anywhere on them. Then again, they aren't marked "Property of the US Government" either. Perhaps the o-rings were part of the military specifications??:

    Interesting, every one of my Scepter MWC's had an o-ring when new where as not a single LCI can did. Sure enough under pressure they weep a bit from the vent. How old are those cans? A few of my MWC's have had the o-rings get brittle and crack, then subsequently fall off. MWC's might not have always shipped with them?

    Any pictures of how the O-rings are attached? I've had a collection of tan mil surplus water cans over the years and did not notice o-rings, but was not pointedly looking for them.
