DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -(Ammoland.com)- Century Arms, North America’s premier AK manufacturer, has announced the release of a 100 percent U.S. made version of the highly sought after Draco AK47 Pistol to meet rapidly increasing market demand.

“The Romanian Draco Pistol imports have been infrequent due to Military and Government contracts at the Cugir factory,” said Jason Karvois, Century Arms Director of Sales. “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.”

Based on the AK47 rifle design, the Draco pistol combines rifle-cartridge firepower in compact pistol-form. Chambered in the ever-popular 7.62x39mm cartridge, the Draco pistol features a 10.5” barrel and weighs 6.3 lbs., making it lightweight and handy in tight quarters.

The U.S. Draco comes standard with a maple wood handguard, standard AKM sights, readily accepts any AK47 magazine or drum, and best of all – is completely made in the U.S.A.!

The Draco pistol is an extremely durable firearm that provides unmatched reliability in various conditions. A small package with rifle firepower, the Draco pistol provides the perfect choice for close-quarters confrontations, an ultimate truck gun, or just the perfect tool for maximum fun at the range.

The U.S. made Draco is now shipping to dealers across the country with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $749.99.

I would love to experience handle my personal Draco, how can I order one ?


Chock full of cast parts?


Those are my thoughts..

Gregory Peter DuPont

Did they ever get their metallurgical and QC issues worked out(the RAS47 SHOULD have been a straight up success,but there’s been a few well known failures)?? I am REALLY wanting there to be a manufacturer in the States that can do AKs priced competively that has at LEAST as good quality as an imported Draco(or the old SAR1,current production WASR10 etc).
I KNOW Century can and has done good in the past- the VZ2008,M70AB2 and AK63D/DS were/are solid.But were they made BY Century or FOR Century?

Mikey O

M70AB2 was made by Zastava and imported & slightly modified by Century

Gregory Peter DuPont

I understand about the Zastava. I included it due to a lack of sufficient coffee this morning. But,I had intended to use the others to (hopefully) illustrate that Century doesn’t HAVE to make crap product. My original and central question/point remains the same: HAVE they FINALLY ceased using dodgy metal, cast parts where they’ve no business,insufficient heat treatment, ” scalloping out of the bolt carrier group to reduce weight”? Or are they content to merely market via the slogan ” At least we’re not I.O?” I like (imported)Draco’s. And Century has an exclusive importer agreement with Cugir/ROMARM….are they simply pinching… Read more »


Mikey O is correct. Cool your jets. Just don’t buy Century if you don’t want to.


Check back in 18 months is all I can say. Took tht long to start getting the feed back on the 39 and RAS
