View Full Version : Yankee Hill Machine vs Midwest Industries for AR stuffs, which is better?

I notice their stuffs are pretty much the same and they produces the same stuff for AR parts, such as Handguard, gas block etc...

So which company has the better quality products?

All the AR fanboys are going to tear you apart for not going with some flashy name brand stuff.

On topic... I like YHM rails, flash hiders, silencers, receivers, and gas blocks, but I like MI/Troy sights.

they're on par with each other. If you're specifically talking handguards, take into account weight, thickness/overall diameter, and price.

YHM makes nice inexpensive risers, i've used a few before.

I think YHM is a bit cheaper than MI. But when it come to handguards, is YHM's quality good enough?

MI and YHM are about the same (quality and price). I guess what it comes down to, between the two, is the looks..

I like some of MI's offerings. I am running their T12 handguard. Good price and solid.

I have a YHM and a MI. I honestly can't tell you which is better. I do like the Diamond YHM better looks wise. Hope that helps. Good Luck.

MI gets my vote

I have used YHM stuff on a couple different builds now and am very happy with the quality. The FF handguards are nice and the one stripped upper I used was a better fit and finish than some of the other more expensive uppers I have used.

Feeling rather toolish lately?

Anyways, MI and YHM make ok stuff. YHM makes a pretty common FF HG and most people are happy with theirs. Are there better alternatives? Yes, but if youre not beating the hell out of your rifle they will both serve you well (and lets face it, most of us dont beat our rifles up as much as we would like too).
