    [SHOT 2023] YHM Fat Cat 5.56 Silencer

    YHM announced their newest 5.56 suppressor, The Fat Cat, at SHOT Show 2023.  The Fat Cat uses a smaller section at the rear that tapers into a larger suppressor body.  This unique design allows The Fat Cat to be tucked under rails for a shorter overall length.  The wide body design aims to provide full-length 5.56 suppression in a smaller overall package.  Here’s a closer look at the new Fat Cat silencer from YHM.

    FULL SIZE PERFORMANCE IN A COMPACT PACKAGE
    That’s what you get with the FatCat suppression system from YHM. We designed the FatCat to be as small as possible while giving similar performance to full-sized 5.56mm suppressors.

    The FatCat features the new sRx mounting system to help keep the overall length of the suppressor as short as possible. It features a unique blast chamber that allows for part of the suppressor to “tuck” into most AR15 hand guards. The large volume of the suppressor combined with a unique blast baffle arrangement results in a low, pleasant tone and reduced blowback to the user.
