The Type B is chambered in 9mm and has a double-stacked 15+1 capacity. Modern touches include a frame in black polymer with stylishly molded grip mapping technology, flared mag well and full-length steel rails. An oversized triggerguard and flat-faced trigger with quick reset promote a fast and free trigger pull. An extended beavertail provides leverage against muzzle flip and protects against slide-bite.

The slide has both front and rear serrations for a non-slip grip during manipulation and press-check. GLOCK standard-size sight dovetails. A triple spring progressive recoil system is used in conjunction with AS Speedlock technology to assure smoothness and reduced recoil during cycling.

The AS Speedlock System makes the barrel a tilt-free, rotation-free, straight rearward recoil system that allows for the extremely low bore axis. It employs a U-shaped locking ring that shifts up into locking recesses in the slide to allow for this. The barrel is 4.29″ long and the gun weighs 29.6 oz., empty. Overall length is 7.59″ and height is 5.12″. Width is 1.38″.

Safety features include a trigger block safety, firing-pin safety block and trigger bar disconnect. The Archon Type B ships with four 15-round magazines.
