YHM Mite Rebuilds

General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

YHM Mite Rebuilds

Post by John Titsworth » Mon Jun 11, 2012 11:24 pm

After many requests from many people we decided to redo the YHM Mite silencers. Looks like we are knocking off about 8 to 10 dB depending on host pistol. Video, info to follow.

:D

I mean is it an all new mite, or is it a core replacement program (or both)

It would be removal of your old core and replacing it with John's core and endcap. If it was a new Mite then it wouldn't be called a rebuild ;)

Ok guys, its ready to go.

http://www.thesilencerstore.com/index.p ... ucts_id=42

We are knocking 14dB off of the Ruger MKIII system and better than 8 on the P22. Silencer Research member (past, present and future) get $50 off with the coupon code SRMITE50.

I did this for a guy in Texas and he thought is was so good that we had to offer it to everyone. Satisfaction guaranteed!

While I appreciate the correction if appropriate, smart ass comments are in order only when called for:

"After many requests from many people we decided to redo the YHM Mite silencers. Looks like we are knocking off about 8 to 10 dB depending on host pistol. Video, info to follow. "

He said "redo" not rebuild. The author above could have been yhm, how would we know? He said "we decided to redo the Mite". Sounds like yhm to me, initially.

Not being smart ass at all, the topic title said YHM Mite REBUILDS (emphasis by me). Thats where my response came from.

There is no way for them to do a total redo because of GemTax.

Yes. I know.

$300 is more than I paid for my mite.

How does this compare to Liberty re-core?

Wow! The video really says it all. You can really hear the difference, even through youtube. Well done! If I had a mite I'd do this in a heartbeat.

I've got a Mite that I can't get open, should I send it to YHM first or can you get it open as part of the re-core?

eff it, I'm in with the sr discount. My current core is toast anyway, starting to shear from the torque during dissasembly and it isn't going to get any quieter or easier to take down no matter how many times I send it back to YHM.

Payment sent, mite in the mail tomorrow.

I'll report back on the upgrade.

Maybe I'm dumb, but I cant find where to enter the coupon code. Also, does the price include return shipping? Thanks.

The coupon is after you start the check out, after you create an account, you have to "continue check" top the payment screen and then it will have the discount/redemtoin code in there.

John, in your opinion, should I go all stainless or some aluminum to save weight? What I like about my Spectre is being able to dip to remove all the crap. Is the weight saving worth it to have to deal with scraping off all the crap from the baffles?

Thanks

My Mite cost $200 new when I bought it. It sounds just fine the way it is. :)

I would go stainless unless you really need it to be super light. Stainless is easier to clean, etc... We are going to offer all our silencers with all stainless baffles pretty soon if people want that. This includes our new 9mm/40/45 silencers.

You can do a combo if you want to like the first 4 would be stainless and the last 3 would be aluminum too, if you want to.

Douse it in kroil or penetrating oil. Let it sit for a few days , rotate it a few times. Here and there.

Don't shoot it afterwards! Oil!

Try to open. If not do what he says.
