Draco pistol

I just got a draco pistol in 7.62x39. I love it. It wasn't cheap (to me) but I like guns I don't see everyday. I haven't gotten a chance to fire it yet. I don't expect much in accuracy. How accurate are you with yours?

699.00 put the door at discount guns. I couldn't find any cheaper. That was new in box.

Gunbroker has them for pretty high too. I know people are gonna say they got them for stupid cheap but I'm talking about new in box and real life prices. Here is a link to one and I'll bet it sells quick.

i'm not at all saying you didn't get a deal. the market determines the prices. i was just curious how the market had changed in a couple years.

I originally went to get a spl 16 but ended up with this. I looked at some data online and it still has around 2000 fps out of the 7 inch barrel , so I guess I got the more powerful of the two. The place I got mine at had sold 10 in two days.

if it was me I would apply for the tax stamp and then put a butt stock onto it to convert it into a short barreled rifle.

Especially not the muzzle brake. M92---26mm. Draco--14mm





To the OPs question---I shoot 2'' groups with mine at 50m relatively easily. I never really shoot it at longer distances than that.

$700? YOU STOLE IT, GB They want $999.99!!! I almost bought one for $750 two months ago but I wanted the M92 PAP Pistol (AK yugo pistol)

I shot @ 25 yards with it decent on target, don't ask for 1 inch groups but it can hold its own.

^ thats not the m92 you bought, thats a different sight picture than m92.

Correct. The picture above is my Draco. Below is my M92 patiently waiting on a stamp...

aw, you ruin it! no more pistol .... SBR = cannot carry in my state. Only pistols great for hiking, throw it in my backpack or on my shoulder. My M92 is my go to gun now when I go hiking in the moutains.

Plouffedaddy, I hope you have a SBR tax stamp for that Draco, now it is no longer a pistol and you just posted proof of ownership/posession of an SBR.....just thought I would give you a heads up.

Can't put a vertical fore grip on a pistol without a tax stamp.

I've wanted one of these for a couple of years now, but every time I'd check with my dealer they where out of stock. And the price, $350 at first, went through the roof. Didn't stumble across the PAP M92 until recently and grabbed one last weekend for $100 more than they were a month ago. Just crazy! Downloaded the BATFE paperwork tonight for the tax stamp to own a SBR.
