Where to Buy a Cheap Draco For Sale
A box fresh AK-47 pistol is a wonderful thing. Especially as it is designed to work without a brace that is currently a big bone of contention with the ATF.
And the biggest name on the Eastern Bloc is easily the Century Arms Draco AK-47 pistol.
Do you want the infamous AK-47 Draco for sale?
The AK-47 is issued to the proper military and child soldiers in the Congo alike. You can buy them in markets in the Middle East, or from gangs almost anywhere.
There’s a dealer in almost every nation and this Century Arms semi auto reproduction firearm has turned into an institution in itself.
It comes fresh in the box. It’s oiled, and hasn’t been lying in a Russian attic, or an African swamp, for the last 40 years.
There Are 3 Lengths
You can get the Draco AK47 pistol 7.62x39mm in three different sizes with huge magazine capacity.
The full-size option comes with a 12.25″ barrel length, then you get smaller and more compact with the 7.75″ barrel Draco and then the super short 6.25″ barrel. All of them come with a chrome lined barrel, by the way, so they’ll go all day.
This Caliber is Unique
This is the AK-47 pistol 7.62×39 that you have wet dreams about with a lever action safety. It’s so small that you might lose a little accuracy, but it is an absolutely unique little weapon and a
Just watch Hickok peering ominously through the adjustable sights of a fully automatic Short Barrel Rifle SBR here before going back to your single trigger pull, single shot pistol. As gun reviews go, this is hot.

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-size alternative.
In this video, after a few sighting shots, the smaller Micro pistol, freehand with no tactical brace and just relying on the basic adjustable sights, repeatedly rang the bell at 70 yards.
On sticks, it’s super consistent. So with an optic instead of that front trunnion sighting system, and a brace, you could probably trust this AK pistol to around 100 yards. That’s not bad.
Accessories are Big Business
The best-selling Draco comes with nasty furniture if we’re honest. That wood handguard is kind of unpleasant, but then there’s a roaring aftermarket in custom parts & accessories.
The good news is that pretty much anything that fits an AK-47 will fit this AK-47 pistol too, which includes a stock if you want to go the full SBR route. And plenty of options for that wood handguard.
You don’t have to do that, as SB Tactical has solid pistol braces for this little monster. That matte black finish works well as a centerpiece in a Short Barreled Rifle SBR too. Although we prefer the AK-47 pistol to stay small and wieldy.
Add in some modern furniture, throw the wood handguard in the bin and you can have a truly special creation.

Rappers Love the Romanian Draco

7.62x39mm AK47 Accessories & Upgrades
Fit a sling, SBA3 brace, a red dot, enhanced trigger group, extended charging handle, take an AK-74 muzzle brake, turn the whole thing into a matte black menace. Get some night vision. Do what you like.
This is really a starting point and there are all kinds of custom parts pistol wonders floating round the web that can turn that rather odd looking duckling into something like this.

Custom Guns Get Weird, Fast
When you really start to modify your modern day 7.62x39mm AK47 with related products, then you can join the growing cult of DIY SBR builds and get lost in a very strange world indeed.

The Origins Story
This is a Romanian 7.62x39mm AK47 for civilian use. Really, it’s an almost exact copy of the Romanian PM md.90 without full auto machine guns shenanigans and a folding stock that both feature on the law enforcement and military model.
It does not have a stock and it’s tiny, almost a concealed carry handgun.
What are the origins of the modern AK?
This modern day pistol owes its existence to the Pistol Mitralieră model 1963/1965. That looks like a low-budget AK-47 pistol, because that’s pretty much what it was.
The Romanian AK47 rifles were big, clunky and ugly. But then the company slowly refined the concept. Technological advancement was glacial, but it has come.
By the 1990s, they finally had it worked out. That best selling version was more or less the same as the current line. There are hints of AK74 pistol here, too, and they are more of a tribute act than any kind of faithful replica. It’s a mix and match of both the AK47 and AK74.
Do You Need a Semi Automatic Pistol: 7.62x39mm AK47? Yes…

Century Arms Alternatives
You can buy an AK47 from plenty of other sources, even other guns imported by Century Arms. The main players are Kalashnikov, Zastava Arms ZPAP92, Riley Defense, Pioneer Arms Hellpup and Tula Arms.
The best selling Arsenal SAM7K is a big favorite round these parts for broadly blowing the crap out of a mound of Earth. Or some other inane activity that can rely on iron sights, or eyesight alone and a fire spitting Arsenal SAM7K. For precision work, we’d still go with AR15 rifles and pistols over an Arsenal SAM7K. But that’s us…
The Pioneer Arms Hellpup is a big seller and it’s a real weapon. People even use them as CCW pistols in Soviet Russia So yeah,the Pioneer Arms Hellpup is worth a look….
Riley Defense has an increasing line of rifles and pistols in the $1000+ range that are getting a lot of love, too. Check them out here.
Zastava Arms has some serious custom guns and even sniper rifles with Picatinny rails, nicer pistol grip, muzzle devices and shiz that are a little more expensive. But it too can give you a classic AK look and feel without the top rail, If that’s what you want. Check their full line here.
Cugir Arms rifles are getting harder to find, but they’re good too.
Of course Century Arms will sell you almost every variant of the AK, check out the Century Arms VSKA if you’re looking for gun deals. The Century Arms VSKA and this rifle are good cheap options. And there’s always the AR-15 based rifles that are sometimes more accurate at the shooting range.
Don’t Forget Kalashnikov
Kalashnikov USA now offers a high spec AK, complete with night vision, or just a red dot, that might just rival the better ARs.
Law enforcement still uses the machine guns best sellers in lots of countries.
You can find a number of AR pistol 7.62×39 mm options now too, as well as rifles, bolt, semi auto pistol and full auto. They include the IWI Galil Ace, which comes in a lot of calibers, and the much sexier and more expensive Maxim Defense PDW that will be a star at the shooting range.
What About Some Ammo?
You want shotgun ammo, rifle ammo, 9mm ammo, rimfire ammo or handgun ammo for your concealed carry pistol? Yeah we got all of em for your full size 9mm pistols, long range bolt action rifles ammo and lots more besides for your gun safes.

Is the Draco AK47 Pistol chambered in 7.62x39mm California Legal?
Well, is anything California legal these days? Don’t say street shitting… Maybe single shot rifles chambered in 22 will be the only California legal firearm soon… I don’t know anymore.
But if AR15 rifles are basically hobbled at every turn, what hope for this Russian instrument of war?
What About a 9mm AK-47 Pistol?
The Century Arms Draco Nak9 9mm pistol is a great option if you really like the AK style, but you also like your eyes and ears to function after a home defense ‘moment’. Gun cleaning and maintenance is easy too.
Rifle ammunition is also more expensive, there’s no getting round it. And you can almost concealed carry this thing. Mikhail Kalashnikov would approve.
This Nak9 is fun, like a Wish.com HK SP5 semi-automatic pistol. But it faces serious opposition in the 9mm Pistol Caliber Carbine sector. It has also been followed by a raft of near clones, including the Charles Daly Pak-9.
That offers the same nostalgic lever action safety is a possibly more convenient polymer package, although still you really have to want the AK life to choose the Charles Daly Pak-9.
Other Cheap Firearms to Consider
We can fix you up with a great hunting rifle or cheap AR-15 rifles that costs less. Get night vision scopes and you’ve got a weapon of war.
9mm ARs are a great option, too, now. That’s a real sign of the times and semi-auto 9mm SMG style pistol caliber carbine products have taken over a little this year.
Semi-auto shotguns, pump action shotguns, rifles, bolt action rifles are also low budget options with big impact.
Lever action rifles are kind of comical too.
Air Guns, Air Gun Ammo and Black Powder
If you really want something cheap, or just weird, the humble air gun has come a long way. Air guns, air gun ammo, all of it. You can shoot arrows and 50 cal projectiles that cost a fraction of real target shooting these days.
Also, you can buy an AK style BB gun, a 1911 pistol or a revolver. And gun cleaning stuff.
Break action black powder guns are also cheap and good fun. Black powder is a world away from the precision rifles & pistols we like to sell, but they are a way in to North America Big Game hunting. And in some countries, that’s all you’re allowed.
Get a black powder gun here. Cheap break action rifles and single shot rifles with a kick. Just cheap guns, which is what we all want and need really.
