      I have a Buffalo Better Built 2.5 Gallon, however it is copper and I think may be older, it has a pump handle on top, any idea on when it was made???

      Regarding the Buffalo pump can that Doug has, I'm almost certain that the soda acid or foam extinguishers could be older. But they were made for lots of years so both were probably made simultaneously.
      My Dad had a fire equipment sales and service business in Lewiston, Idaho, when I was a kid (I'm now 62) and I helped him service ka-jillions of these old extinguishers.
