Editors’ Picks 2018: Archon Type B Pistol

Archon Firearms polymer-frame Type B striker-fired 9 mm Luger semi-automatic pistol (formerly known as the Arsenal Firearms Stryk B) has an internal configuration which is quite different from the oft-copied Glock design. Developed in Italy and manufactured in the European Union, the Type B’s barrel is supported by a removable U-shaped cradle pinned to the frame to minimize barrel movement during recoil while allowing for an exceptionally low bore axis. Fresh rounds feed almost directly into the chamber in order to eliminate most of the up-and-over travel of the cartridge as it’s pressed into battery, resulting in improved feed reliability. Other features include a flat-faced trigger, grip mapping frame texture, an integrated beavertail and Glock-compatible sights. archonfirearms.com
