When it comes to showing off hunting gear, predator hunters are at the top of the list. They like to have custom built firearms that sport the best accessories, not only does this look good, but it also defines who they are as a hunter. This is especially true with AR style rifle hunters and shooters. This style of hunters knows YHM (Yankee Hill Machine). The likeliness of YHM being a common name among hunters is due to the quality of parts and accessories that the company manufactures year after year. When shooters want to build their own quality firearms, YHM has uppers and lowers that are made of quality metals that can withstand the abuse that only a predator hunter can put on a firearm. Here are 3 Handguards NEW for 2018 from YHM.
These very lightweight handguards feature M-Lok® accessory mounting holes along the entire handguard at the length at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions. Additionally, these handguards feature a “T” marked Picatinny extended top rail. Each front hole accepts their Q.D. Swiveling Sling Mount.
