…for a Draco pistol. Yep, its a shorty AK that is totally legal as long as you don’t attach a stock. Then it becomes a SBR (short barreled rifle) and you have to fill out the ATF forms and pay a $200 tax stamp to own it. This thing looks like it would be a lot of fun to shoot if you have the proper range to use it safely on. As far as practicality, I don’t know about it. Despite its label as a “pistol” it is much too heavy in that role and I dare someone to try and hold and fire it using traditional pistol techniques. Its basically just a bullet hose, not a whole lot of long range shooting is going to happen with it. Maybe if you could somehow attach a single point sling to the rear so you could push against it for some stability maybe you could engage targets out hundred or so meters. A friend of mine and I were talking about the AR versions of these that can be found locally and what they would be good for. Maybe as a vehicle weapon to have on hand for a SHTF scenario possibly? One of these, 2 mags of ammo and you could have a serious “deterrent” to aggressors on your hands.
Currently I cannot find these in the Central Ohio area, but they can be had online for about $370.
Some guy in Tennessee went into a park with one of these over his shoulder dressed in camo and got into some
trouble shenanigans with the law. Personally I have to think to myself (based on the info provided in the link below) “OK, he was within his right to carry as he did, but wearing a camo jacket and carrying an AK pistol in public is just asking for it”. This thing is an unusual weapon and I would not expect 100% of the LE community to know what it was and that it was legal unless they had some assistance with classifying it. Anyway, here is a link to the story on a firearm forum that gives most of the info.
Back to the pistol, again it looks like it would be fun to shoot. Here is a YouTube vid of a couple of guys having some fun with theirs.
More posts later this week. I am finishing up a paper for the last class of my 20+ year college career so my time has been short as of late. I have a few posts in the works as well as some ideas for the blog. Stay tuned!
