Q: Where can I purchase a Type B?
A: You can purchase our firearms directly from us or at any of our dealers that are listed on our dealer locator. If there is not a dealer near you, please contact us for assistance.
Q: Should I lubricate my firearm?
A: YES! All firearms require lubrication. Please follow your owner’s manual for instructions on proper lubrication.
Q: What kind of ammunition can I use in my firearm? Is +P or +P+ ok to use? Can I use handloaded ammunition?
A: We recommend using standard SAAMI and CIP spec ammunition when possible. Ammunition loaded to +P pressures is acceptable for use, however it could shorten the life span of certain parts of the firearm. While extensive testing has been done with +P+ ammunition in the Type B pistol, there is no industry designated pressure limits to these loads. As such, Archon Firearms is unable to guarantee the reliability of the pistol, lifespan of parts, nor safety of the pistol when it is subjected to these rounds. Archon may, at its discretion, deny warranty coverage to pistols using +P+ rounds if it is determined that damage was caused by over pressurization of a +P+ round.
Q: What SAAMI and SAAMI-compliant ammunition?
A: SAAMI= Sporting Arms and Ammunitions Manufacturers Institute. For information on their regulations or to see if your ammunition selection is SAAMI compliant, please go to http://www.saami.org

A: YES! The Type B pistols are manufactured with a Glock standard dovetail and front sight. There are many after-market sight options available, including our AFR8 Night Sights.
