Archon Firearms is pleased to offer optic Cuts for the Type B pistol. Customers can not only specify an RMR cut gun on new purchases, but can now retrofit their existing firearms with an optic cut of their choice. Currently available options for the Type B are Trijicon RMR and Aimpoint ACRO cuts. While no cover plate is currently available for the ACRO, customers can choose to add one to the Type B for an additional $50. Currently no cover plate is available for Glock Pistols but Archon Firearms plans to offer it shortly.
All optic cut work includes recoating the slide with Black Nitride coating. While we can perform the optic cut on guns with a cerakote finish, we are unable to refinish it with cerkaote. The slide will be recoated with Black Nitride and returned via that option to the customer.
For an adidtional fee, slides can be coated with a variety of PVD coatings including DLC, TiCN-MP (Rose Gold), TiN (Gold), and AlTiN (Blue-Black), or TiCN (Blue-Grey). The surcharge for PVD coatings is $150 when done as part of a RMR cut. Coatings can be done à la carte for $175 as a seperate option in Archon's Custom Shop.
The lead time for optic cuts is currently 60 days. This must be agreed to prior to sending the firearm in for work. Lead time is subject to change without notice, however Archon will do its best to update the website with current leadtimes.
