These Shot Boards are genuine WWII crates that housed .50 caliber bullets used in combat. The boards are offered in a variety of finishes and four cut-outs for shot glasses. Our 25mm shot glasses and most other shot glasses fit perfectly into the cut-outs. Raise a glass with your friends or Unit.
*some of our boards have cut-outs for a custom strap inlay. The price includes one of our already fitted straps or you can request a custom strap for no additional charge. ALL include original hardware.
We are more than happy to customize the shot board for you. We realize that sometimes the stain you want may not be available...no worries we can make one for you, usually with no additional charge. We just need a few extra weeks to customize it for you.
*All of our boards & crates can have a name plate added for a small fee (see Custom Name Plates).
