Introducing the latest innovation from Yankee Hill Machine: the Sidewinder M2 Suppressor. This remarkable suppressor, available in both 9mm and .45 ACP, is a game-changer in the world of firearm accessories. Designed with a keen focus on lightweight construction, rugged durability, and premium features, the Sidewinder M2 bridges the gap between affordability and top-tier performance.
What sets the Sidewinder apart is its remarkable compatibility. This suppressor accepts pistons from renowned manufacturers such as SilencerCo, Dead Air Silencers, and Rugged, offering unprecedented flexibility for your firearm needs. Thanks to a brilliant redesign, swapping pistons has never been easier – no tools required – all thanks to the ingeniously crafted rear cap.
Crafted from premium materials, the Sidewinder M2 is engineered for longevity and reliability. The body is constructed from 7075-T6 aluminum, while the high-efficiency monocore baffle design ensures optimal sound reduction without compromising performance. A class 3 hardcoat anodized finish enhances the suppressor’s resilience.
The outer tube of the Sidewinder M2 is meticulously crafted from 6061-T6 aircraft-quality aluminum, further solidifying its lightweight yet robust nature. This outer tube also receives the class 3 hardcoat anodize treatment, ensuring both durability and a sleek finish.
Key components of the Sidewinder, such as the Piston, Nielsen Sleeve, and Blast Baffle, are expertly crafted from heat-treated 17-4ph stainless steel. This exceptional stainless steel is renowned for its resistance to corrosion, wear, and extreme temperatures, ensuring your Sidewinder M2 maintains peak performance even under challenging conditions.
The new Sidewinder M2 suppressors retail from $599 MSRP.
Below is the complete product description from YHM on the new Sidewinder M2 Suppressors.
The new Sidwewinder M2 suppressor is optimized to give you an affordable, lightweight suppressor packed with features typically found on more expensive models. The booster system has been completely redesigned and now uses the industry’s unofficial standard piston. Pistons from SilencerCo, Rugged, Dead Air, etc. can be used in the Sidewinder M2 and vice versa. The redesign also includes the ability to swap pistons without the use of tools thanks to a new rear cap. The front cap has been redesigned to allow for better engagement with the takedown tool to make the service process easier.
The Sidewinder utilizes a high-efficiency mono-core baffle made from 7075-T6 aluminum that is class 3 hardcoat anodized. The outer tube is made from 6061-T6 aircraft quality aluminum which is also finished with class 3 hardcoat anodize. These materials offer high strength and longevity in a lightweight package. The Piston, Nielsen Sleeve and Blast Baffle are constructed from heat treated 17-4ph stainless steel. This type of stainless steel is extremely resistant to corrosion and wear, and will not degrade when exposed to extreme temperatures.
The Sidewinder M2 is user serviceable which allows both the baffle and Nielsen device to be removed for cleaning and maintenance using the provided disassembly tool. Our Nielsen device enables flawless semi-automatic operation on all relevant host pistols. The Sidewinder M2 has 12 index points that allow you to adjust point of impact while remaining attached to the host firearm.
The average dry sound signature of the Sidewinder M2 .45 when testing to Mil-Std 1474D is 133 dB dry on a Glock G21 using 230gr. FMJ ammunition. Shooting the suppressor “wet” will net even quieter results.
