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.

ok century has released an UNOFFICAL photo. this is a micro draco century built a few years ago, however the model being released now *may be slightly different*...
