Yankee Hill Machine kicks off 2017 with the new, budget-friendly Turbo suppressor designed for the 5.56 caliber.

The tubeless design was announced Tuesday by the Massachusetts-based silencer maker.

Coming in at 6.5 inches long with a diameter of 1.56 inches, the tubeless Turbo weighs 13.5 ounces. The Turbo is made from heat-treated 17-4 stainless steel and features 718 Iconel-treated blast baffles. The new silencer is full auto rated with an average 134 decibels on a 14.5-inch AR platform shooting 55 grain ammo.

The Turbo attempts to answer the industry’s call for a lightweight yet quiet can, according to YHM.

“As the current state of the suppressor industry grows and evolves, the demand for a high-tech, cost effective suppressor becomes more apparent,” a statement from YHM said. “(The Turbo) was designed to meet the increasing demand for a quiet, yet lightweight sound suppressor that won’t break the bank.”

YHM has certainly maintained a value-driven perspective with the Turbo, pricing the model at a very affordable $489.99. It’s worth mentioning, that the price includes a quick-detach muzzle brake.
