The Yankee Hill Machine Nitro 30 Sound Suppressor

YHM Nitro 30

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.

    1/2×36 – that’s standard threads on 9mm AR-15s. So are we to assume that it can handle 9mm (0.355 inch)?

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Almost definitely not. 9mm is .355 and needs about a .380-.400 bore.

      That said, it would be heavy 9mm can, but the trend is definitely “do it all” (poorly) cans. If this was the case calling it the Nitro 30 makes no sense… but then again, YHM.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    Like WOW. Way to go YHM…. You made a SIG Omega but much heavier.

    I’m always shocked that YHM has managed to stay in the suppressor business.

      Silencerco Omega….

      • JumpIf NotZero

        Thanks… But it seems you have missed the fairly obvious joke that it’s a cross between SIG’s tubeless welded design and Silencerco’s modular ends and caps…

        I didn’t think that needed explaining.

        • Machinegunnertim

          Yep. Well, more options out there for us and more competition in the market.

  • Anonymoose

    Does it work with their other .30cal muzzle brakes and flash hiders?

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Looks like it on the muzzle break. Appears to be the same 4 tooth surface at the end.

  • Gorilla Biscuit

    What’s the minimum barrel length with .308 and 5.56? Can’t find any info on their website.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      I wouldn’t be surprised if they have made one of these and have no idea what the limits are.

      Call them up and find out. Be a hero that delivers.

      • Gorilla Biscuit

        They were closed when I called, but here’s the story on the rest of their cans .

    Yehhhhh, more Negative Nancy’s comments from guys that seem to be unimpressed at every new item TFB writes about…….
