Century Arms Draco





century arms draco |century arms draco review

The Century Arms Draco delivers a reliable and durable pistol platform with great performance and accuracy. It comes chambered in 7.62x39mm with a 10.5 inch barrel. Features include an ME 109 muzzle brake, a blade brace, and a 30 round magazine.

The Century Arms Draco pistol is an unusual option in today’s sea of large-format semi-automatic pistols. Unlike its contemporaries, it’s not a Eugene Stoner offspring. Instead, it is based on the AK-47, using that full-length firearm’s tried-and-true system of operation and maintaining the manual of arms.

It’s been popular for years, but finding a Draco for sale stateside was historically a hit-and-miss affair. Whenever available, however, they sold fast.

In the summer of 2017 Century Arms addressed the situation. Jason Karvois—the company’s director of sales—announced that June, “The Romanian Draco Pistol imports have been infrequent due to Military and Government contracts at the Cugir factory. Due to the popularity of the Draco pistol, and overwhelming demand, Century Arms has started to manufacture the Draco pistols at our Vermont factory to be able to consistently offer them to the U.S. market.”

More about Century Arms Draco

The decision was a sound one, with response positive enough that in 2018, Century Arms expanded the line by offering a 9 mm NATO-chambered version (seen above). The blowback-operated semi-auto continues to be a popular choice today. It wears an 11.14″ threaded barrel, has an overall length of 19.1″, comes with one 33-round magazine and can accept Glock G17 and G19 magazines. The Draco NAK9 weighs 6.38 lbs. and MSRP is $700.

The original, standard Draco comes in at $1,000. It’s chambered in the more AK-familiar 7.62×39 mm, has a 12.25″ threaded barrel— twist rate of rifling is 1:10″—. The receiver is stamped and the pistol tips the scales at 5.5 lbs. Magazine capacity is 30 rounds.
