YHM blast deflector

Anyone running a short barrel AR can tell you that the muzzle blast can be overwhelming – especially if shooting indoors. Yankee Hill Machine is offering a QD blast deflector that is designed to redirect the blast forward, away from the shooter.

The Quick Detach Blast Deflector is designed to work with the company’s line of QD muzzle devices, and it locks on like the suppressors also offered by YHM. The blast deflectors are made of 4140 steel and are Melonite QPQ treated.

Two different blast deflectors are currently being made. Between the two, the majority of the YHM QD muzzle device line is covered. Both models carry a suggested retail price of $79.

    Is anyone else sick of the muzzle device market?

    Given the price of their brakes and flash hiders that double as QD's, I'm guessing the MSRP doesn't include one, since they're usually about that expensive.
