Yankee Hill Machine (YHM) announced a new .30 caliber sound suppressor suitable for full auto use and cartridges up to and including the .300 Remington Ultra Magnum. The new suppressor is called the Nitro 30. The Nitro 30 was developed by YHM after consulting with shooting enthusiasts and professional military personnel.
YHM sells the Nitro 30 in a kit with several swappable parts to increase the versatility of the suppressor. YHM designed the unit to use different end caps depending on the shooter’s need. Included in the kit are a closed end muzzle cap that minimizes the flash signature. A second cap has an integral muzzle brake that further reduces muzzle rise and is better suited to the recreational shooter.
YHM also includes two different end caps in the kit. One end cap allows for the device to be directly screwed onto any barrel with 5/8-24 threads. The second cap is a Quick Detach end cap that is paired with an included muzzle brake. The kits can be ordered with a muzzle brake to match the threads on your gun’s barrel: 5/8×24, 1/2-28 or 1/2-36.
Sound attenuation varies based on the cartridge, barrel length and other factors. YHM states the Nitro 30 has a decibel rating of 135 dB with a .308 Win cartridge. Depending on the caps used, the suppressor varies in length from 6.93″ to 7.75″. Weight also varies according to the installed caps: 18.2 oz – 20.2 oz.
Also included in the kit is a hard sided carrying case and a Basofil heat resistant pouch. Two assembly wrenches are also part of the kit. The suggested retail price for the Nitro 30 kit is $890.
