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.
MSRP for The Fat Cat is set at $659.95 and is slated to be released in Q2 of this year. The sRx muzzle devices are currently available and have an MSRP of $82.95. Special thank you to the YHM staff here at SHOT Show 2023 and stay tuned for more coverage from SHOT Show 2023.
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.
