NEW MICRO DRACO
« on: October 28, 2013, 03:43:08 PM »
So Century Arms got in today the very first batch of the long awaited micro-draco. This is supposed to be SMALLER than the mini Draco. They had no photos, the salesman said he had never seen one. They sold out in seconds. I got four. Has anyone seen one of these before? Im thinking they will do quite well on auction  :P

No idea but sounds like they first came out in 2011.

yeah all i can find online about them is chatter in the 2010-2011 time frame about century "mentioning" a micro draco will be released one day... but it stops there.

i can confirm the aug 2013 century catalog calls the mini draco cleaning rod a "mini/micro draco cleaning rod" however there has been no other mention of the micro draco in any of centurys catalogs i could find..

its hard to picture what the gas/barrel system will look like on a 5.8" barreled ak but i did find this photo ... not confirmed its a "micro draco"

6" barrel on an 8"+ receiver seems awful silly to me.

i just read a review on the eubanksak47 micro draco that says with a round chambered, the round extends almost past the gas port  :facepalm:

this is pretty accurate

So there the "nasty-cool" factor... But having a regular Draco that's already REALLY LOUD, cant imagine the loudness, and serious loss of performance of the mini or micro.  I'm not interested.
