I can't absolutely say for sure, but I recall having one for .44 Mag ammo in the early 80's.

We used to sell them from late 70’s thru 80’s.

I think from sometime in the early to mid 1970's. I have a large pile of their ammo trays which I like very much. I haven't seen them in stores for a very long time. Seems like every time I've gone to a gun show I luck out and get another one or two. A couple of the ones I have have been in my possession since the early 1960s. Before that what trays I had were home made wooden ones. Still have those as well.

I’d call it “vintage”

Put $2 on the sticker.

Flambeau used to sell a lot of plastic products for the shooting sports. Before we ever heard of MTM around hear. I have a Flambeau double rifle case, and a dozen 50 count hinged top rifle cartridge boxes. All purchased about 1980 at local retailers.

I remember the ammo wallets were available at that time also. Though I did not own any.

They made great products. That double rifle case must have ridden 100,000 miles jammed in between three dirt bikes in the back of a Toyota pickup. I still use it today for range trips.


My ideal as a conservative:

That each person may reap as he/she has sown.

Looked what turned up the mail the other day. They are probably the oldest NOS Flambeau ammo wallets in existance, and to score the lot for $2 a piece was even better.
