FULL FEATURED AND BUDGET FRIENDLY
Silencing the Competition with the new TURBO sound suppressor by YHM®

Yankee Hill Machine® is proud to announce the release of the TURBO, the all new 5.56 suppressor. It was designed to meet the increasing demand for a quiet, yet lightweight sound suppressor that won’t break the bank. As the current state of the suppressor industry grows and evolves, the demand for a high-tech, cost effective suppressor becomes more apparent.

Since we first began milling out handguards as a firearms manufacturer, YHM® has built a strong reputation on producing the highest quality products for the everyday shooter that doesn’t have access to an unlimited budget. The same YHM® commitment lives on, bringing the modern suppressed shooter a superior product at an attainable price point.

The TURBO utilizes a tubeless design made from heat treated 17-4 stainless steel along with a heat treated 718 Inconel® blast baffle. The combination of these materials allows the suppressor to be full auto rated and designed for rigorous use. The overall length measures 6.5” with a 1.5625” diameter -all while weighing in at a surprising 13.5 oz.

Having an average sound pressure level of 134dB on a 14.5” AR shooting 55 grain ammo, the TURBO is well within the hearing safe threshold of 140 dB. Built with the same care, quality, and attention to detail that has defined the YHM® brand for generations.

With an MSRP of $489 (which includes a Q.D. brake) the TURBO was created to supply the modern suppressor community with a full-featured suppressor at an affordable price.

  1. Since when is 140 dB a safe noise threshold? Above 85 dB Noise Induced Hearing Loss is possible. The Time Weighted Average for continuous noise levels at 134 dB would be about ~30 seconds. We should still wear hearing protection when using suppressors at the range guys. Thats not to say I’m really looking forward to the review on this because if the HPA passes this looks like it would be my choice.

    • Because gunshots aren’t continuous noises. In fact, the peak impulse is extremely short (so short most dB meters don’t even register it). For brief impulsive or impact noises, OSHA long ago set the limit of “hearing safe” at 140 dB. It’s the gunshot hearing safe level everyone in the industry and the military has used for many decades (since the early/mid 70’s or earlier).

      But FYI, I completely agree that you should still wear ear protection given the option. Shooting doubled up with a suppressor and plugs is awesome. Hearing doesn’t grow back.

      YHM Suppressors. Their shizzay is rock solid, and if they’re calling it a “suppressor” it works and that’s what it does.

      NOT ONLY THAT – but this can (and all YHM suppressors) is extremely inexpensive for what you are getting. You get a muzzle-brake Q.D. and (again) if YHM is calling it a muzzle-brake, it IS one. If you remember back to the 150 or so muzzle devices tested by the TTAG peeps YHM scored way way up near the front of the pack (if not top 3 if I’m not mistaken).

      You rarely see a higher priced can going up against YHM in sound testing because YHM is AT LEAST EQUAL suppression to any higher can. There are some ~ nicer attaching methods (but they seem more prone to failure long-term). Those that complain about YHM cans being “heavy” they need to man-up, and the lighter cans ALL get lesser suppression.

        • I think AAC was late to the party on that design (SHOT show cocktail napkin stuff). It is not the bladed birdcage style that tested well in the TTAG test, (and I don’t have that particular one and have never even lost a charred one at sea) but if YHM put it out, I bet it’s a good one.

  2. As someone who has wanted a suppressor but doesn’t want to spend the same as a new gun on one, I must say I am rather tempted by this.

  3. Any word about using it on a SBR? 7.5″ or 10.5″. Since it is full auto rated, maybe it is tough enough for SBR use? Pricing looks good.

  4. C’MON – HEARING PROTECTION ACT ! ! !

    The ATF can’t keep the lights on without the $200 Constitutional offense.

  5. I’m assuming this’ll still work with .223? I feel like the answer’s yes, but for some reason I’m hesitant to say.
