Yankee Hill Machine’s new 30LTA Suppressor

20130118_153544

1/24/13 EDIT: The LTA acronym was updated along with caliber clarification. Also noted that this suppressor is available without the teeth.

YHM’s new 30LTA (Light, Tactical, Aggressive) detachable suppressor is specifically designed for 6.8mm, 300 Blackout, and 7.62x39mm and is capable of handling the .308 Winchester cartridge. It has an all new style with with a new grip pattern and some some mean-looking teeth. It is also available in a smooth version without the teeth.

You would not want to be on the receiving end of this suppressor, in any regard. These teeth are sharp.

A zoomed out view of the 30LTA on an AR-15. They also have new handrails in two styles.

It’s also notable for having two points of contact with the flash hider it attaches to. If the suppressor somehow comes loose from vibrations, jolting, gunfire, etc, the second point of contact will prevent the suppressor from jiggling and affecting accuracy. To demonstrate this, the sales rep unscrewed the 30LTA a bit and asked me to try and jiggle it, which I was unsuccessful in doing.

    I know I can probably look this up, but it’d be nice to have it on this page for everyone else. MSRP on this?

        Figured, just curious all the same. Thanks.

    i love the aggressive style flash hiders, it turns the end of your barrel into an impromptu melee weapon, and i feel like if i was clearing a building and some guy got a little too close for whatever reason, i would smash him in the nose with this and finish him off with a double tap. its about time the theory came into the suppressor market :)

    • Practical over Tactical

      Are you actually overseas, or just a civy with an over-the-top imagination?

        Nice implied ad hominem. You do this a lot?

    • Clodboy

      To lunge at the enemy with this thing, you have to be able to point the muzzle of the gun at him: ergo, you might as well skip the melee attack (which carries a risk of the enemy dodging, grabbing the gun and disarming you) and just go straight for the double tap.
      Atleast I assume that’s how it would be handled outside the mall security industry.

    Looks like it’s more likely to injure the operator than anyone else, and besides, if you need to stab someone with your rifle, fix a bayonet that will penetrate deep enough to cause some real damage.

    YHM’s offering are usually quite sensible, wonder what happened here.

      It’s not for stabbing people. It’s for breaching doors and such. It’s designed to dig into the door.

    Nice moderator spoilt by the silly shark teeth on the end! If you need to jab some guy in the face with the end of your suppressor you really are in trouble.

      not if you are a cop or need to break glass in a hurry

  • TangledThorns

    Looks like it could rip your face off.
