At the range with the Romanian Cugir Micro Draco AK Pistol in 7.62x39 with the Snake Hound Machine Loudener Muzzle Brake, which also doubles as a hefty flash enhancer. Although not the best option for practical uses, it certainly makes for a fun gun and muzzle brake combo for the range! Never fails to turn heads and start a conversation with enthusiasts.
AK Pistols made in Romania by the Cugir factory, and imported into the U.S. as semi-automatic 7.62x39 pistols by Century Arms. The Draco ak pistol family includes the full-size Draco and Draco-c (with underfolder trunnion), the Mini Draco, and the Micro Draco ak pistol. Due to being imported into the U.S. as "pistols", they are not subject to 922r compliance (required U.S. part count) that ak rifles which are imported are subject too. But these ak pistols do fall under restrictions in the U.S. for adding stocks or changing overall length without license (turning into an SBR = Short Barreled Rifle).
The smallest of the Draco pistols is the Micro Draco. Chambered in 7.62x39 and imported by Century Arms, it has a chrome lined 6 inch barrel with a twist rate of 1:9.5 inches. The barrel is threaded with a 14x1 LH pitch for easy brake replacement. It accepts standard 30-round capacity 7.62 ak mags.
The overall length is 15.5 inches and has a total weight of only 5 lbs. An unusual feature of this ak pistol is the over-sized, but shorter, one-piece lower handguard. As with the Mini Draco, it has no upper handguard covering the gas tube. It also has an unusual rear peep sight welded to the rear of the dust cover, replacing the non-existent standard rear leaf sight of the ak platform.
