Texas Black Rifle Company Model 1836 Alpha AR15 Rifle

Our goal is to bring you a Texas Made AR15 that your grandchildren will fight over. A rifle you can be proud of and love for a lifetime. All TBRCi Complete AR15 rifles and pistols use an upper and lower receiver precision machined to correct Millitary Specifications from 7075 T6 Forgings and are finished in the best Type III Hard Coat Anodizing available. They also come standard with Ballistic Advantage AR15 barrels. The BA 5.56 and 300blk chambered barrels are machined from 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium steel with a QPQ (Black Nitride) Corrosion Resistant Finish and QPQ coated M4 feed ramp extension. The barrel on this model 1836 AR15 is a 16” Government Profile with a 1:7” twist rate. Rifle comes with a mid length gas system on 5.56 16″ rifles for smoother cycling and a pistol length gas system on 300blk rifles for a more versatile gas system. All of our Ballistic Advantage equipped AR15 rifles and pistols come with a 1MOA accuracy guarantee. The barrel extension has M4 feed ramps allowing for more reliable feeding. This Model 1836 comes with a TBRCi 15” Lightweight M-Lok Handguard. M-Lok is a modular design allowing the user to have picatinny rails exactly where he needs them and nowhere he doesn’t. This feature allows the handguard to maintain a slim profile and light weight without sacrificing strength or durability. The TBRCi Bolt Carrier Group is finished in the same QPQ/Nitride finish as the barrels. This finish is slicker than the standard parkerized finish and makes cleaning your BCG easier. The bolt undergoes MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspection) testing. The Bolt Carrier is an M16 style, otherwise known as a full auto style, carrier. This design has more weight and has a fully shrouded firing pin. The slightly heavier mass of the M16 BCG delays the bolt unlocking by a few milliseconds, this allows pressures to decrease in the chamber, gives a smoother feel and less felt recoil. This BCG comes with a properly staked gas key. TBRCi weapon systems come standard with A2 flash hider, low profile gas block and standard charging handle. The Alpha models come with a Magpul MOE Grip, Magpul ACS-L Stock, Magpul Enhanced Trigger Guard. Perhaps the greatest upgrade the 1836 Alpha receives is the Texas Made, CMC Trigger. The CMC trigger we have chosen for the Alpha models is a single stage, flat bow trigger with a 3.5lb break. This trigger has virtually no take up or over travel and has a clean crisp break and solid reset. We know that you will love this trigger as much as we do and understand why we have chosen to install it in our Alpha series of rifles.

    What a sweet rifle!! I hadn’t heard of TBRC prior to walking in to a friendly local gun shop in New Braunfels, TX. I knew I was in the market for a high end AR, and had every intention of buying a Noveske, PWS, or LWRC rifle.

    Then I saw the various TBRC models on the wall. My curiosity got me to check them out. Instantly I could tell that the build quality was beyond excellent. Fit, finish, features, and overall value of these rifles is amazing. CMC 3.5# trigger and Magpul furniture and sights as standard features further increased my interest.

    I walked out with the model 1836XL equipped with a Vortex Viper scope (mounted) for less than I would have spent on a Noveske, then the mods I would have done to make it to my liking. And the 1836XL was already dressed out exactly how I would have built a rifle myself. So I have to do nothing to it, but to enjoy.

    So I gave my new beauty a run this weekend, and am even more impressed. First of all, the iron sighs were zeroed already. Not that I think they sighted them in at the factory, but the build quality is so excellent that the standard center settings on the flip up sights equated to an effective zero at 50 yards with no adjustment. On top of that my scope only took about 6 MOA of adjustment to be zeroed in at 100 yards. Groups the size of a quarter. With a trigger pull that is so crisp it actually surprised me a couple times.

    TBRC may just be my new favorite AR manufacturer, and I strongly urge you to buy one, or two. Save yourself some money! Yes the rifle carries a slightly higher end price tag, but for what you get with it, you will end up saving big time, quality for quality. I’ll pit my TBRC 1836XL up against anyone’s Noveske or LaRue any day.

    I purchased the TBRCi 1836XL Alpha a few months ago for the purpose of using it as a police patrol rifle. I had seen and handled the exact same rifle before that a friend bought, and it seemed perfect. So I ordered mine with a few week turnaround promised. I received my rifle in good order, faster than promised, and I really immediately appreciated the workmanship. It’s just a well built rifle, with everything on it indicating absolute awareness of latest technology and preferred furniture.

    I took it to our department patrol rifle class just recently. The instructors had already seen the brochure on it for pre-approval, and in class they kept referring to it when discussing preferred gear. These guys build all their own gear, but for this class, they were all very appreciative of this rifle. They liked the extended M-LOK handguard, the CMC trigger, liked the finish and furniture, and liked the bolt carrier assembly. They discussed the reasoning behind buying one made by a company as opposed to building one yourself, in that a company will engineer the rifles components to be balanced with each other, proper component weights and spring tensions, which is necessary for smooth operation without misfeeds.

    As the class progressed, we shot more and more ammo through it. The ammo provided seemed to me to be lower quality .223 ammo, kind of dirty. The weather conditions were terrible, and we were shooting stress sets in blinding rain, with the rifles on the deck in between exercises. In short, we torture tested our equipment that entire week, and the TBRCi 1836XL Alpha ran flawlessly. I had only equipped MBUS iron sights, and easily qualified with a 197 out of 200 score. I have no doubt that when I put on quality optics and use proper ammo, I will be driving tacks at distance.

    Thanks to Texas Black Rifle Company, Inc, for building me an exceptional rifle. We always hope it never gets to this point, but when your life is on the line, you want the very best equipment. I am highly confident in my TBRCi 1836XL Alpha patrol rifle.

    My third AR-15 and by far my favorite. It wasn’t picky about ammunition at all and I’ve fed several different types through it. Right now I have it paired with a Vortex Spitfire III optic. The full length rail looks sexy as hell. I will definitely buy more of their weapons as my budget permits.
