Suppressors currently represent one of the fastest growing segments in the gun industry, and with the American Suppressor Association's (ASA) efforts to expand legal suppressor ownership to additional states, more and more people are choosing to place suppressors, or cans, on their firearms. And while there are tons of caliber-specific cans on the market, some of the best selling suppressors are those that are compatible with multiple calibers and can be switched quickly and easily to different platforms. The benefit of these types of cans is that a shooter can purchase and complete the NFA paperwork on one can and use it on many of his or her firearms instead of buying and filling out paperwork on multiple suppressors specific to each caliber.
Recognizing the consumer demand for this level of versatility, Yankee Hill Machine (YHM) has recently brought out its new Nitro 30 Suppressor, a modular device that can be adapted to the shooter's given purpose or task. The new Nitro 30 Suppressor system comes in a kit that includes two different muzzle caps and two different rear caps, which affords the user greater adaptability in terms of mounting options. The new can also is built to handle calibers ranging from .17 HMR on the small end to .300 Remington Ultra Magnum on the large end, making it incredibly versatile, especially for shooters looking to implement the suppressor on a variety of platforms.
The two muzzle caps include a flat cap, which is tailored to more tactical pursuits, and a muzzle brake cap, which is geared more toward target and recreational shooters. The two rear cap options are a Quick Disconnect (QD) rear cap and a direct-thread rear cap with 5/8-24 threads. The QD option provides a more flexible mounting system for use on multiple firearms, whereas the direct-thread cap offers a secure mounting choice for a more dedicated setup.
The Suppressor System Kit for the Nitro 30 Suppressor comes with the welded suppressor body, the two muzzle caps and two rear caps, two assembly wrenches, one muzzle brake with the user's choice of thread pitches (5/8-24, 1/2-28, or 1/2-36), one Basofil heat resistant pouch, and a carrying case for all the parts. MSRP is currently listed at $890.
In addition, a flat muzzle cap and a direct-thread-on rear cap (1/2-28) are available separately for purchase, as is the YHM Adaptable Brake, which utilizes the same rear and muzzle caps as the Nitro 30 Suppressor.
