Tennessee Arms Company is proud to bring to the market our newly designed TAC-9 style lower receiver.

The TAC-9 receiver is the newest member of the Tennessee Arms family of receiver. Using our fiber reinforced polymer and metal inserts we have delivered the lightest and best designed Glock Magazine compatible lower receiver on the market today. This receiver comes with our proprietary ambidextrous magazine release already installed. The rest of the lower receiver parts are standard AR design.  These parts are in stock and ready to ship. 

Manufactured from a fiber-reinforced Nylon blend with extreme resiliency. Using our patent-pending technology, Marine-Grade Brass inserts are permanently molded into the receivers at the Grip Screw & Buffer Area. These metal threaded inserts increase durability without sacrificing weight savings of the composite bodies. The ejector is permanently embedded in the material. Colors are injected throughout the receiver during molding thus eliminating the worry for a scratched or marred finish.The end result is a sturdy receiver that is light to carry without compromising functionality.

TN ARMS CO Products come with a lifetime guarantee. We stand behind our products 100%. We believe the finest way to show this is through impeccable customer service which includes a warranty that stands firm. We invented the hybrid lower receiver, and we work continuously to keep it second-to-none.  

Federal law requires that you be 21 years or age or older to purchase a stripped receiver or frame. Even if a frame or receiver can only be made into a long gun (rifle or shotgun), it is still a frame or receiver not a handgun or long gun. However, they still are "firearms" by definition, and subject to the same GCA limitations as any other firearms.

Upon ordering, please list the contact information for your desired FFL.

    Takes Some Work

    Posted by DMTX1010 on 13th Sep 2019

    This receiver looks great and is really light. I installed an Unbranded AR ELG LPK and Strike Industries Anti Walk/Rotation pins with no issues. I used a buffer tube with the anti tilt retaining ears as suggested. I do not believe a tube without the retaining ears would have worked at all for my build due to the placement of the buffer retainer hole. I finished out the build with a Zaviar Complete Upper from 22Mods4All. This upper required major adjustments at the pin holes and buffer tower. It took me a couple hours sanding and filing little by little to get a fit that was just right. Things are still a little tight, but it will break in and loosen up with time. I chose an FM9 BCG for the build which also required major fitment. The ejector was sitting much too high and required much more to be filed away than was implied in the TNArms instructions post. After filing the ejector and checking clearance repeatedly, I finally got to an acceptable clearance. Test firing the rifle went great overall. The receiver held up well and functioned as expected. My final feedback is on magwell clearance. The magwell allows enough slop on Glock mags that if the gun is not held completely flat then the mags cant left or right just enough to cause the bcg to smack the back of the mag. Both of my metal lined Glock mags got damaged and required filing to repair. I did find that Magpul GL9 mags fit much tighter in the magwell, which reduces the slop and prevents the mags from canting far enough to be damaged by the BCG. I will be using Magpul mags exclusively in this lower going forward.

    Overall the receiver works well and is very functional for the price. If you pick this up then be prepared to put in the time and patience needed to make it a perfect fit. Regardless of the issues I had, this lower is still a very solid option for a lightweight and/or budget build.

    Went together easy, but it fit very tightly had had to use a lot of lube. Also after a breakdown to clean the front pin hole broke. The pins fit so tight I don’t see it being a problem but it’s annoying.

    Lpk went in without issue, everything is to spec.
    Has a sweet built in ambidextrous magazine release.

    Now whether or not it will survive a years worth of shooting we will see, I'll update this review if possible if it survives a couple thousand or breaks.

    The receiver had a month delay before shipping which was a bummer but not a deal breaker. The receiver itself fit much like the standard receivers, but with a few key differences that lost it 2 stars.
    1. The fitment of the take down pins: The rear detail from the upper receiver would not this lower without significant modification. These are molded for a tight fit and some minor touchup, but much more material was required to be removed from this lower than any I've bought thus far (over 10).
    2. Magazine fitment: The lower itself had a flaw such that magazines placed into this lower lock, but have a certain amount of front to back movement. The magazine itself will fit and feed correctly as placed into the lower, but can rock into a position that will force the magazine out of position and result in a significant number of jams.
    The magazine well is slightly over sized resulting in the condition described. The 9mm round tilts nose up, jams against the barrel face and bolt carrier. 5 hard jams in 4 mags, Glock Pmags and KCI mags were tested.

    Overall great product. We did have to shave down a the back edge where the buffer tube meets the lower to make it a flush fit but other than that, it was perfect.

    Hellova product! I only shop TNARMSCO for my builds. Their customer service is outstanding as well. This has been an absolute blast to build. High quality and very light. Perfect for making a super lightweight build.

    Great lower assembled in minutes all parts mil spec fit fine. Little tight on bolt release took 400 grit and a couple minutes worked great. Mags drop free from well and fits tight between upper and lower no slop.
