Guns Arsenal Firearms USA To Become Archon Firearms Candice Horner December 22, 2017 Join the Conversation Arsenal Firearms U.S.A. announced that it's rebranding the organization to Archon Firearms (arK ahn) due to a potential trademark dispute. The soon to be released pistol, the Stryk B, has been redesignated as the Archon Firearms Type B. Archon Firearms CEO, Adrian Chavez, said: “Although we are confident in our legal right to the previous name, we’ve chosen to rebrand to avoid a potentially lengthy delay in the launch of our Type B pistol. Unfortunately, the rename does require manufacturing new slides with updated markings, as well as the reissue of an ATF-required marking variance, so some delay is inevitable and we now expect to launch in late Spring.” “We apologize for the frustration this may cause some of the tens of thousands of customers who have placed preorders through their dealers,” Chavez added. “We wouldn’t exist without their patronage and we are doing everything we can to expedite the process. Type B samples have been in final field validation for a month now with a select group of firearms trainers and competitors, and based on their unanimously positive feedback, we are confident the wait will be worth the inconvenience. The Archon Firearms Type B is a compact, polymer grip, striker-fired handgun. It features a low bore axis and what the company calls a “unique recoil-reducing mechanical design boasting improved accuracy over conventional pistols.” For more information, go to www.archonfirearms.com.
