Tank Rust: Looking to build my first ar but I'm on a budget. What do you suggest I
weaponlover32: Zombies aren't on the way. They're already here. They dwell in our nation's
Titz Mcgee: @Moldovawineimporter i heard yankee hill was mil spec. Am i wrong?
GrizzlyGunsmith99: @dbmers bushmaster used to be one of my favorites till they got a big name
and started cutting corners and slacking on quality a name can only go so
far.. if you compare a bushmaster side by side with say rock river or stag
you will see a lot more tooling marks, uneven and non matching finishes you
will also notice there bolt carrier does not have a full tail or shrouded
firing pin they dont have these features because of the cheaper technique
of manufacture wont allow it.
OLDBD1: man you guys are fast
SNEEPER1980: hmmm. i got a yhm ar and i love it. nothing cheap about it period.
Moldovawineimporter: @MrAzcabowabo I have never heard of this brand of AR before so I can't say
what quality these AR's have to them. When I build an AR I use Bushmaster
and DPMS parts or I buy Military parts from an Internet site Called FTF
Industries . . After one of my AR's was blown up using Young Machine parts
I don't use strange unknown AR company's parts to build AR's any more .
Titz Mcgee: i just picked up this same rifle but mine came with diamond cut flutes in
it which kick ass!! Guess it helps strengthen the barrel and cool it. If
anyone wants to see a vid go ahead and click on my page
saclve: not a big ar fan probably because i own a saiga ak but nice rifle guys the
reason why i was so interested in the video is the aimshot sight how has it
held up to the beating the .223 right? gives it thanks for your time
Springr1911: I've shot quite a few YHM AR's and liked them. Only snobs would talk down
that rifle. There is a difference between cheap (crap) vs. cheap
(affordable). 2 lessons I teach in class are 1) Let your shooting do the
talking don't worry about the talkers. 2) A gun doesn't make you a shooter
ability and hard work does. I like seeing young shooters, gives me hope for
the shooting sports. Take care, Bryce
Conservativearmyguy .: I've own several different AR makes & used the M4 for a while, my favorite
is my YHM rifle 16" barrel & even though it didn't come with a MOA
guarantee I get .5 groups at 100 yards with match ammo. I never even heard
of YHM rifles until a buddy from my old unit told me to check it out he's a
swat officer and his department uses YHM rifles.
werno175: noob question what is mil spec... sorry lol new to guns :)
semiautoriflelover1: Why are you resting the barrel on the hard wood? That is not going to help
Luger718: i like the whole zombie apocalypse talk you do.... i always joke around
like that....until the zombies come of course ;)
sootch00: @imperialfleet1 Thanks for the sound info. I personally only shoot Steel
cased ammo in my AK /SKS for that exact reason. I may research this farther
and make a video. Take care~
keenshooter001: Very Nice, Sootch.
hawaiianlineman: for the basic model I would rather invest in a smith and wesson, they are
milspec and perform flawlessly.
Eslamizar: 1. I liked the AR you did a review on. 2. I would never talk trash about
what someone else had as far as firearms go. Just another gun snob your
friend doubt with lol that's all.
tank52r: is that range in SC? it looks identical too a range I go sometimes
GrizzlyGunsmith99: @dbmers yes its the more recent rifles roughly 2003 and later rifles.
DrMTHead: I put together a custom YHM upper and put it on a Delton inc. lower, and I
absolutely love it! It's extremely accurate, has very little recoil, and an
incredible trigger pull (for a stock mil-spec trigger)!
ZeroTechSkilz: Another great review, thank you.
DarkKitchen: Kill that paper!!
jrmym2: @MrDowneast It isn't lower priced. They go for $1200 and up. I'd spend my
money elsewhere for that kind of price.
deadlychemist: @sootch00 Great video. Not really firearm related but may I ask what camera
Hannibal Smith: YHM makes awesome stuff just top notch! I own a Stag rifle and I get the
samething sometimes which bothers me a little but when most shoot it they
say "O this is not that bad" I also get the satisfaction with my Stag to
know I didnt pay as much as the next guy most of the time. Good review
thomassmyth65: great review sootch, cant believe someone would sacrafice 100$ in sales
like that, nice AR the collapsable sights are a nice add on.
numba1stunna4269: Awesome video!
imperialfleet1: Great video Sooch. Make sure to tell your buddy and anyone else you know
that fires steel-cased ammunition to keep some spare extractors on hand and
even a spare bolt wouldn't hurt. You never know when a part could fail ya
at the worst possible minute! I love shooting steel cased and have never
had an extractor fail me yet, but if you research it, it does happen. I've
gone to a separate bolt altogether for shooting steel-cased, and preserve
the other bolt for non-target practice readiness.
m4gunner25: I always find it strange that anyone would call YHM 'junk'. i have NEVER
seen a product made from them that I wouldnt claim as my own creation.
0122358: hey sootch, does that yankee hill have a mid-length or carbine gas system?
stephenabm: Yankee Hill is a quality company and produces good components. I think the
store owner (gun shop) did not like the name "Yankee Hill" down in Dixie!
ARBuilder1776: YHM makes very good products. Anyone who says they make junk has never used
their products. Just curious as to what range this is.
sjr341: Sweet Rifle!
USNERDOC: Another cool rifle and and awesome Sootch video. Love the ending!
esh325: @MongoWongo777 I don't know of any state has banned AK's or AR15's. You
probably can get a neutered version.
rcruz003: Good review on the YH AR-15 , Never heard much on them but overall they
appear to be a fine rifle. Thanks
GrizzlyGunsmith99: Bushmaster high quality...... LMAO
SkinnyMedic: @tacticalfirefighter3 Thank you for the advise, I will try that next time.
buszero: Great stuff, Sootch! I sometimes get qun questions because I can spit out
answers about my own experience with my own guns, but I also get questions
here and there about building AR15's that often stump me because I don't
even own one yet. I can always refer people to this video as a great
recommendation. Thanks, bro!
Titz Mcgee: Scootch, I have the same Black Diamond YHM AR as well. Curious as to why
your buddy doesnt have the diamond cut flutes in the barrel? Is this
something YHM didn't do on the older models? Looks as though other then
that, we have the same rifle. Thx
jrmym2: @redmule02 They are cheap now and were plentiful during the Obama scare. Of
course people want them; it doesn't say anything about their quality,
sootch00: @Thrandi Yes, you're right. I didn't notice it until I was editing the
video. I also forgot my sandbags. Thanks Bro~
MonGo WonGo: @esh325 Thanks. They're not banned in my state, just my county. My local
gun shop will only sell those to LEOs. I cannot even get ammo shipped to my
house. Total pain, I will ask if there are "neuterized' versions available.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I did not think of that.
Vercingetorix51: Yankee Hill and Magpul make great stuff. I think a lot of the people that
dismiss their products are the ones that spent $350 on a Daniel Defense
lite rail or $250 on a Larue Handguard for example.
jfp: Anyone who says YHM is junk has no business owning a gun store. Great Vid!
Moldovawineimporter: @MrRustytrombone Give me your E mail so I can send you Photo's of my Colt
AR 15 that is blown up because I used a YHM bolt carrier ! I will never use
YHM parts ever again ! Its lucky I did not loose an eye from flying parts !
Use Mil spec from now on !
shancock1969: Hello, Would you happen to know the actual length of the YHM Diamond Series
Free Float Handgaurd in this video? --- i.e carbine, mid-length, specter,
or rifle length? I am pretty sur it is neither the carbine or rifle length
- I am in the market for the exact handgaurd and I am trying to figure what
length I would like/prefer. Thanks !
sootch00: @SkinnyMedic Thanks for pointing that out. I annotated it in the video.
EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
