  1. Might as well post this here, it's been on our Facebook page for a little while. Here's a couple shots of our new TAC-12 receiver set. This configuration allows for a free-float handguard that bolts directly to the upper. No more wobbly handguards if a retention nut comes loose, no more indexing pins or alignment plates. Availability and pricing coming soon.
  2. Firebird has a few matched receiver sets from older model guns that are for sale. Stripped lower and matched upper, they'll come with the ramp installed and both pistol grip and buttstock adapters. Three of them are black and two are in camo. Price is 250, contact Firebird if you're interested.
  3. This will be a comparison of the T&N handguard and the Firebird handguard. It covers the alignment of the handguard with the upper, and the methods used, components and manufacturing techniques, assembly and disassembly, and details along with descriptions of all parts used by both companies. The T&N handguard is manufactured from a length of extruded aluminum tubing in an oval configuration. They have various models of various lengths, and a variety of detachable rails that bolt directly to the extrusion. The front face of the extrusion is capped with an aluminum plate, and I wou
  4. In this post I will discuss the differences in the Tooth and Nail buttstock adapter, and the Firebird buttstock adapter. The first photograph shows two iterations of the Tooth and Nail buttstock adapter, along with the original Tromix adapter. Note Tooth and Nail's first attempt had no provision for the location of the threaded hole in the upper receiver to vary. This resulted in customers breaking their lower receivers. The design was refined and can now accomodate variances seen in the MKA factory parts and it also sports a nicer paint job. It should be noted Firebird uses only high qu
  5. This will be a side-by-side photographic and functional comparison of a complete Tooth and Nail built MKA-1919 and a complete Firebird built MKA-1919. In this post I will compare the machine work performed on a stock MKA lower receiver in order to accept both buttstock and pistol grip adapters. Just for information, Tooth and Nail originally told their customers to cut the buttstock off at .600", Firebird had recommended to never cut this less than .900" so the receiver could maintain structural integrity. But we found on this example Tooth and Nail has cut this receiver to .900".
  6. In this section I'll show and discuss the differences between the Tooth and Nail Armory pistol grip adapter, and the Firebird pistol grip adapter. In the T&N design, the pistol grip adapter freely falls into the lower from above, and is retained by a small shoulder measuring a mere .032" thick. It is held in place by the pistol grip and pistol grip screw. It is identical in design to the original Tromix pistol grip adapter, with the exception of the thickness of the retention shoulder. The Tromix adapter had a substantially more robust shoulder, but keep in mind this feature protrudes
  7. In this installment we will discuss the T&N and Firebird fire control group. Since the trigger used by both companies is a standard, milspec AR-15 trigger, I will only cover the hammer and disconnector. Baseline facts, the fire control group is based and designed around an AR-15 fcg, with obvious differences in the geometry of the secondary sear and the design of the striking face of the hammer. The original MKA hammer is manufactured from .200" thickness tool steel, and has a mild heat treat of apx Rockwell 48 to 50. It weighs approximately 510 grains, but 82 of those grains are
  8. Forgive the state of my table, but here's my MKA with my new TAC-12 lower.
  9. This is what happens when all those "mythical" parts come together into complete guns. These are some MKA's and some complete TAC-12's that are on order. Only 60 more to build and ship until multi-gun nationals!
  10. We're having a few stragglers on the waiting list who we haven't been able to get in contact with. If you're number 1 through 90 on the waiting list give us a call.
  11. Finally started on prepping for multi-gun nationals and decided we needed mag holders for the MKA. Built a few of these today.
  12. This is the new Firebird SS Blade Adjustable Stock and TAC-12 Extended Mag Button shown on a TAC-12 lower.
  13. Comes in 6 different videos, here's the first one. The rest will be on the same channel shortly.
  14. Here's some pictures of the production model TAC-12 and some conventional MKA's with various hydrographic films.

  16. Here's a few pictures of our new buttstock adapter. This design is compatible with all versions of the MKA. This adapter incorporates all features required to use any AR-15 compatible stock. With a collapsible stock it accepts the "eggplate" to index the buffer tube, and can also be used with any accessory eggplate that may include single-point sling attachment points. It also works with all fixed stocks. Retail is $49.95, call to order!
  17. Back when we were just getting started on these and business was slow. Early on we were only building customer guns for competition and 922r guns for distributors. Back then we only had to keep production of components up for our own use. Nowadays, trying to meet the increasing demand, it seems our CNC never stops running, 16 hour shifts 7 days a week. Still, people seem to think we aren't shipping product or even answering our phones. It only takes about a half an hour for our voicemail to overfill and the phone never stops ringing. We're doing the best we can but there's only two of us in t
  18. Firebird is back! It was a long, busy week at SHOT show but it was an awesome time. In the last week the new production run of extended charging handles was completed, they'll be shipping early next week. Also, the latest batch of handguards is complete, they'll be shipping very shortly too. Finally, the aluminum lower receiver will be shipping as early as 45 days. Give Firebird a call at 505-847-0108 to order and pre-order!
  19. Sneak peak at a Firebird Tac-12 in the white.
