The Century International Arms Draco pistol is made in the United States of America and is chambered in 7.62×39. The simplicity of the AK-47 operating system and its long heritage make it a popular choice among many enthusiasts in the firearms community. The Draco takes all the best features of an AK-47 and puts them into a small, handy package that is fun to take to the range and won’t fill up your range bag so you have room for more ammo. Its small size means that it only weighs 6.3lbs and make shooting it one handed a breeze. The Draco features a stamped receiver and the same controls as an AK-47 such as the safety selector, magazine release, and is disassembled in the exact same way. If you are an AK lover, the Century International Arms Draco pistol will make a fine addition to your collection.

The short barrel on this pistol is a blast to shoot. Literally. The 7.62×39 caliber round exiting the 12.5” barrel quite amazingly throws a fireball downrange and is one of the best features of this rifle. The large round still packs enough power even with such a short barrel and attaching a sling or even pistol brace (attaching a rifle stock is illegal without the proper paperwork and tax stamp) makes it much more efficient to aim. Attach a muzzle brake to the 14×1 left hand threads and you have yourself a much more usable gun that is still fun to shoot.
Century International Arms built its name over 50 years ago by offering surplus products and importing high quality AK47 style rifles such as the WASR-10 and the AK630DS and decided to capitalize on the popularization of the AK47 in America by designing and building their own rifles from the ground up. Century International Arms believes in providing the best possible product to American gun collectors, hunters, target shooters, and military/Law enforcement officers with state of the art manufacturing processes and will continue to create jobs in the United States of America.
