So, congratulations are in order for all you Type B faithful. Now you're at the end of the wait, a grueling one indeed to now finally receive your new Type B! Thank you all for supporting us an allowing us to support you over the past years in some of your cases... you're awesome and appreciated!
The US Type B first impressions
Super tight tolerances, very smooth slide action (1911 like) best mag release button ever (seriously, mags fly out under pressure) and the grip map texturing is a winner over any stock grip texture... trigger, so good!
We shot 50 rds. Sat. in between a training and next to some of the usual suspect's, the Type B had the tightest and flattest recoil as advertised. If the B holds up to abuse and reliability is proven as expected just off a 100k round torture spread over 7 guns test last week, we'll have the winner we waited for.
More to come on that and planned shoots for Youtube next week.
Quick update of all things Type B.
1) The first shipment came in and went out over the weekend for our earliest pre-orders in mid-2016. Very happy people to say the least!
2) Next shipment comes at the end of this month. If we receive what is expected, all pre-orders will be covered from later 2016-present. If we receive a few dozen less than expected some 2018 orders may be shipped in the Oct. batch. We are doing everything we can and as well Archon to fulfill all, however.
3) Trijicon pre-orders- The front sight solution will be a small cost above the $20 credit if you ordered a Triji gun or a $20 discount. TBD next week.
4) Kydex duty holsters, concealed carry holsters, and mag carriers are on the site now. Tuctite and StealthGearUSA made some quality stuff for the B. Check them out here.
5) Present R&D:
holsters for APLc light
ported slide and barrel
Anything you want to see made let us know as well!
Will parts be swappable with Strike One? Will know next week when trying springs, triggers etc.
I only paid the $75, can I still pay the balance now? Yes, use this link https://www.rain6.com/pre-ordered-archon-type-b
and thank you for understanding that your order will be filled after the zero balance B'ers.
When will threaded barrels be available? 30-45 days
Are 10 Rds. magazines available for some stricter states? Yes, Dimitry says a solution is underway as there is one for the Canadian market, not sure why Canadien mags can't be used, maybe they say Stryk B on them.
Will Bs come red dot ready with the removable plate? Yes, just like other launches they (different versions and kits) will be available later. Unknown when. Until then we'll support the gun like we did the Strike One, custom work for barrels and red dots.
