When my stamp comes in this is what my Draco will look like. :super:

I am not sure if I will go down the SBR road with my Draco, but I really like the look of that gun.

Parts:

Ace folding mechanism

Ace skeleton stock (paracord wrapped)

UsPalm magazine

UsPalm grip

Krebs enhanced safety

Krebs canted vertical grip adapter

TWS hinged top cover

Ultimak M1-b (cut down) gas tube

Ultimak tri rail

Chaos HK rear sight

Aimpoint T-1

Magpul VFG

 

I'm really digging the set up as it's ergonomically perfect for me. For those on the fence about SBR'n your draco, do it! If i were to do it again, i might be inclined not to purchase the Ultimak tri rail. It's too heavy for the price. Its sturdy and solid as hell, but for the over inflated price, the thing is pretty damn heavy. I had an older blackjack tri-rail on it and though it was really light, it secured in the same way as a regular wood HG so it was kind of loose. In hindsight i could have just cut off the retainer and purchased a bolt on model to snug it down. I also chose not to use my krinkov flash hider and thread adapter. For those of you that haven't held one, they weigh about 15lbs. I just wasn't that into it. I'll probably sell it on here at some point. I plan on having the whole thing duracoated in a russian flora pattern. I bought two pairs of Russian BDU pants in flora (shipping was over 20 f'n$), but they were too big for me (maybe 36-38inch waist)? I got pictures of the pattern so if anyone wants the pants PM me. The TWS top cover is great and holds zero well. The newest revision comes with what i guess what would be a steel buffer. I cut it off. The aimpoint T-1 with the TWS is an excellent combo.

vitamink - That is a gorgeous setup you have put together. I am considering the T-1 but have a hard time pulling the trigger on an optic that cost twice what the Draco does. Great job!

Im confused and upset by all of the misinformation on the Mini Dracos.

 

-They don't have any US parts on them.

 

-922r does not apply to them.

 

-They are not assembled by Century Arms.

 

-They are built and assembled in Cugir, Romania by S.C. Uzinele Mecanice Cugir S.A.

I kind of like mine a lot.

Lines up perfectly. I contacted Cameron and he said that you can only buy in pairs, which still makes them a cheaper option. You can order the regular peep sight with the TWS hinged top cover, but i prefer being able to set the windage. I'll try to get a picture here later. Here's a couple more.

So went out to buy a gallon of milk, and picked up this nice brand new Draco-c with sling mount, sling, 3 30 round mags 2 polymer 1 steel, and one 20 round mag, plus utg bipod, Chinese AK style mag vest and a T-shirt :)

 

All numbers match on Bolt, Carrier, receiver, haven't check barrel gun made in 1974, everything looks brand new, haven't fired it needs a good cleaning to get factory cosmo out, and then off to range I will go.

Was thinking of buying another Saiga 12 for $750 last week, but couldn't get the cash out of the ATM lol. Instead I saw this little devil and couldn't resist, as it will go nicely with my Saiga, and GP Wasr-1063 :)

bcowanwheels, you were lucky! Mine came from these jokers simply cut off, no threads at all. Locking pin on front was rusted in place. It was all O.K. as I am making someting entirely different. For those who want to order and shoot, choose somebody else to buy from. I ordered pistol & case separately amd they shipped their special (included magazines I didn't want) and charged me a higher price.

As she sits now. Ultimak upper & lower rails, Primary Arms micro optic, modified Magpul MOE grip, ACE folder & stock, 24mm thread adapter, 74 brake reamed & timed, Grip Pod & Surefire G2 in a VTAC mount. Still need to find a color matched G2, but whatever.

 

5 shot groups at 50 were between sub 1" to 1.75" for 6 five-shot groups in a row using only the Grip Pod w/ Brown Bear ammo. :D

I have decided this will be my next weapon purchase, here is a few pics of one I found that I really like. Not sure I will put different color furniture on it or the same grip, but it looks like exactly the type of setup I'm looking for.

I'm still on the fence on whether I should get the krebs threaded rear trunnion or have someone tap and thread the stock one for a sling. I have decided I do want the ultimak gas tube so I can co witness like corbin, I'm sure I could send it to one of you to bandsaw it to the right size for me for a fee. ;) I will also be having Pauly polish the bolt, and underside of the carrier along with the FCG. I really can't wait to get one in and start working on it, I'm sure it will be a blast to shoot.
