Yan­kee Hill Machine kicks off 2017 with the new, bud­get-friend­ly Tur­bo sup­pres­sor designed for the 5.56 cal­iber.

The tube­less design was announced Tues­day by the Mass­a­chu­setts-based silencer mak­er.

Com­ing in at 6.5 inch­es long with a diam­e­ter of 1.56 inch­es, the tube­less Tur­bo weighs 13.5 ounces. The Tur­bo is made from heat-treat­ed 17–4 stain­less steel and fea­tures 718 Iconel-treat­ed blast baf­fles. The new silencer is full auto rat­ed with an aver­age 134 deci­bels on a 14.5-inch AR plat­form shoot­ing 55 grain ammo.

The Tur­bo attempts to answer the industry’s call for a light­weight yet qui­et can, accord­ing to YHM.

As the cur­rent state of the sup­pres­sor indus­try grows and evolves, the demand for a high-tech, cost effec­tive sup­pres­sor becomes more appar­ent,” a state­ment from YHM said. “(The Tur­bo) was designed to meet the increas­ing demand for a qui­et, yet light­weight sound sup­pres­sor that won’t break the bank.”

YHM has cer­tain­ly main­tained a val­ue-dri­ven per­spec­tive with the Tur­bo, pric­ing the mod­el at a very afford­able $489.99. It’s worth men­tion­ing, that the price includes a quick-detach muz­zle brake.
