    Ive got YHM iron sights and diamond handguard on my M4gery. It also has a phantom muzzle brake that I love. I also have a YHM lower that is waiting for an A2 upper to be mated to it. YHM products are very good for the money.
    What do you want to know about them?

    Yankee Hill offers good stuff! I have a YHM 7" rail on my LMT rifle, and a YHM upper receiver and Phantom FH on my "Frankenrifle" AR. My dad has YHM front & rear flip-up BUIS on his AR. All excellent products!

    Just general info like quality, fit & finish, dependability, etc. Planning on building an AR.

    I never hesitate to recommend YHM to anyone looking for cost effective parts. The fit and finish is great as far as I'm concerned. If I sit my YHM lower next to my Rock River Arms (RRA) lower, the finish appears to be the same. My RRA upper fits the YHM lower just as well as the RRA lower that it came on. Get the YHM stuff, you wont be disappointed.

    I have some of their iron sights (front flip-ups) and their mini-risers - seems like something else, too, that I can't recall at the moment. All have performed well, good prices. No abuse on anything, so I can't really speak to durability beyond average civilian employment.

    I've got a lot of products from BUS to suppressors. You can't go wrong with YHM.

    I have 2 lower from YHM could not be more happy with them. Starting to buy my parts to finish them off. Everything so far has been a perfect match for them. I am even looking at the 6.8 rifle from them to get.

    An important thing to keep in mind is..YHM is not cheap because they are poor quality or perhaps not "up to par". Its because their company as a whole manufactures an entire range of products, and as a result can sell them for cheaper. They're a suppressor manufacturer that can make money off rails. They're a rail manufacturer that can make money off sights.

    I'll be going with a Phantom for my next build.

    I have a .30cal phantom that I run on AR15's as well as my AR10's (QD FH's). Works great and was half the cost of other cans. Slightly larger and heavier but that's the only trade-off.

    Like the others have said, "it's good stuff".

    I probably have something of theirs on over 1/2 of my ARs. Foregrips, sights, gas blocks, 1 beautiful barrel, etc.
