    Anyone have any experience with these? I think it might have to be my next addition to my collection is these things are as cool as I think they might be. Anything I should look out for?

    It was by far the most impractible AK I've ever had. And I miss mine and want another one. I can't wait to get one of these when I get home. I had no issues at all with my Draco.

    They are fun to play with - if you want more practical just get an underfolder. At least then you have the ability to hit something at some distance.

    I have owned a Draco and curently own a homebuilt 7" barrel pistol. If you are looking for pin point accuracy, then yes the are impracticle. But so is a MAC-10. They are designed for a short entry weapon to clear the room. I have found that if you use a single point sling as snug as you can stand it. Use the shoulder rig to your advantage and they become a fairly stable shooting platform. Tact it all out with a laser and a light......gee all of a suden they become effective for that purpose. Who needs accuracy in a small room as long as the bullet goes where the laser goes. The Draco's are fun and realible, but I like the shorter barrel. Draco's are 11" barrels. Draco's are easier to Tact out because they will take the full length AK tact forearm. There is no place on a Draco to attach a single point sling. So I took an old HK front sight pin with the hoop, Threaded the one end, drilled a small hole for the pin in the left rear of the receiver as far back as I could so it would not interfear with the FCG, spun a nut on the pin and now I have a loop for a single point sling. They really are fun. Guns are like cars....many different models for many different reasons.

    They are great. And for only $340-$360 (I got mine for $350) its a great firearm.

    Controllable enough to where you could shoot all day. Reliable and affordable to feed.
    If you end up buying one and don't want it, just sell it to me! :)
    I turned mine into an SBR just got approved as of Nov. 23rd. She's 3/4 there.. I'll post pics once shes done.

    BUT GET ONE!

    i've got a yugo underfolder and love it, just want something to screw around with thats a bit smaller. Looks like alot of fun, and as rdb said seems like it could be an excellent close quarters weapon. I was thinking an underfolder, laser, tact light would b too sweet. oh yeah 40rd mag... yeah man!

    my car gun. Here in WA you can't have a loaded rifle in your car, but (with a CPL) you can have a loaded pistol.

    Another question guys, I got a slant muzzle break, but still think this will throw some serious fireballs, what did you previous owners put on to help with the flash? I am looking at the phantom.

    here is my project so far still waiting on a bunch more stuff to try out.

    Buy one, then SBR it.

    I've got a crappy sight, OD green furniture and magazine only because I've been playing with her and didn't want to damage the good stuff. :)
    The furniture is gettign swapped out for a compact length Ultimak rail with a magpul foregrip, the sight is getting swapped out when this one has bit the dust and the 10rnd mag is to just make her look smaller.

    Items on her include:
    ACE Push button folding mechanism
    Ace 9.5" stock
    Ergo grip
    TWS 2nd gen rail
    24x1.5 adapter
    Krebs safety lever

    Soon to be added a Bulgarian 4 piece flash hider!

    Except some of us live in WA and an SBR is illegal here.

    8 US Presidents have been NRA members
    80 MILLION gun owners didn't shoot anyone today, a few criminals did!

    Phantom or Vortex. Get a front Tapco grip with Picatinny rails and mount a holo/light/laser. You cannot mount a forward grip..NFA violation (rolls eyes)

    :rollingeyes:Ya never know when the zombies are gonna pop up! I think my christmas list just got a little longer.
    Didn't realize a VFG was an NFA item in this case. What is the tax stamp on that? $5 like AOW, or $200 like a can or SBR?

    Where did you pick your at? Do they have any? As for flash hidder I go with Noveske FX3, it is design for SBR. It pish the sound to the front of the target. I am very comforble shoot it without ear protection. I shot it at night and see no flah at all.
