There Are 3 Lengths of Draco Gun
Unebelievably, for such a small gun, you can get the Draco in three different sizes. The full-size gun comes with a 12.25″ barrel, then you get smaller and more compact with the 7.75″ barrel Mini Draco and then the super short 6.25″ barrel of the Micro Draco.
This is the AK-47 pistol that you have wet dreams about. It’s so small that you might lose a little accuracy, but it is an absolutely unique little weapon and a real cheap way to get a semi-automatic long pistol that hits harder than an AR-15.
You should be able to buy a Micro Draco Gun for around $700.
You can watch this little fella in action here and the express purpose of this video is to find how much accuracy you lose compares to the full-sized Draco Gun when you switch to the Micro Draco.
In this video, after a few sighting shots, the Micro Draco, freehand with no tactical brace, repeatedly rang the bell at 70 yards. On sticks, it’s super consistent. So with an optic and a brace, you could probably trust this little gun beyond 100 yards. That’s not bad.
The furniture is pretty nasty if we’re honest, but then there’s a roaring aftermarket in custom Draco gun parts. The good news is that pretty much anything that fits an AK-47 will go on this gun, too, which includes a stock if you want to go the full SBR route. You don’t have to do that, though, as SB Tactical has a solid pistol brace for this little monster.
Add in a new pistol grip and some modern furniture and you can have a truly special truck gun for less than $750. You can even have a full AK-47 SBR with new furniture that looks seriously good.
It fires typical AK-47 ammo (7.62x39mm). It’s semi-automatic, the safety is the typical oversized lever and it just looks right, even down to the budget pistol grip.
The Micro Draco Pistol weighs in at 4.85lb
it packs a serious punch, although if you’re an AR-15 pistol kind of person then this argument probably isn’t going to work on you.
The Draco is reliable, it will eat standard AK-47 ammunition all day long and people that buy one tend to love theirs. It’s great fun at the range,
It’s loud, it’s intimidating, the Draco gives you a sexy muzzle flash and it’s just different. If you’re a collector, or a range junkie, then you kinda need one.
Seriously, it’s easy to manoeuvre, it kicks like a mule and you get a 30-round mag. You get the legendary AK reliability, it will basically eat trash ammo all day long and if you don’t like the wood veneer or odd, brown pistol grip, and we get that, you can strip it down and turn it into the gun of your dreams. When you take the Century Arms route, you’re hardly messing with heritage.
Fit a sling, take an AK-74 muzzle brake, do what you like. This gun, at this price, is really a starting point and there are all kinds of custom parts floating round the web that can turn that rather odd looking gun into something like this.
You’ll end up with a gun that isn’t much longer than a big revolver and is five times as effective. It could be the ultimate truck gun, but it will also be the one you reach for when you just want to have some fun in a wide open space.
Forget Picatinny rails, and optics, and all that jazz, unless you really start to modify your Draco gun AK-47 pistol.
Where do you buy an original Draco gun?
Let’s say you don’t want a new one, though. Let’s say you’re going down the full army surplus route. So how do you buy a Draco gun online?
They’re actually very rare, and you’ll have to dig round for a proper weapon. Most of them are the modern copies, which will do the job but perhaps lack the romance of a true beaten down Eastern European weapon.
But you can find a wide selection of AK-47 pistols, which is the best search to go for, on Gunbroker. That will turn up all kinds of treasures from Arsenal and even different versions of the Century Arms weapons with a tactical brace and modern furniture.
What is a Draco Gun?
The Draco gun is a Romanian AK-47 variant designed for civilian use. Really, it’s an almost exact copy of the Romanian PM md.90 without full auto and a folding stock that both feature on the military model.
It does not have a stock and it’s less than 26 inches, comfortably so at 22 inches overall. So, even with that 12 inch barrel, it’s classed as a pistol on these shores.
That puts it head-to-head with the likes of the Sig Sauer MPX platform, B&T TP9 and the HK SP5K. Can it hold its own here? Hell yeah, if bang for buck comes into things as this gun is an absolute bargain and if STHF then it’s one you’d want by your side…
It’s really hard to pick faults with the Draco gun if we’re honest.
The modern one anyway…
What are the origins of the modern Draco gun for sale?
The modern day Draco gun owes its existence to the Pistol Mitralieră model 1963/1965, which looks like a low-budget AK-47, because that’s pretty much what it was. The Romanian rifle was big, clunky and ugly. But then the company started to refine the concept.
The 1990s version was more or less the same gun as we have now, with a skeletal, basic stock and full auto for military use.
How much is a Draco Gun?
When the Romanians flooded the US market just five years ago, this was a cheap gun if you really scoured the ads. Those days are gone…
The problem is, it’s way better than that and connoisseurs have started to get hold of them, they have acquired a cult following and Draco guns have even found favor with rappers that like the size and the image.
Now the only guns on sale are pretty much the Century Arms-badged versions, which are licensed copies that are still being churned out of a Romanian factory.
Why would you want a Draco gun?
Just look at it. It’s a perfect home defense weapon if you have ear protectors on at all times, it would be a lot of fun at the range and if you’ve got an outdoor space to go and let rip then this would be about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on.
