If you’re not running an AK-47 platform rifle or pistol at least once in awhile, you’re missing out. Not only does using an AK broaden your shooting skills, it’s fun. Enter the Century Arms Draco 9S AK, a 9mm chambered AK-style pistol that should definitely be on your “add to collection” radar.
The Century Draco 9S AK is an AK pistol that evolved as a logical next step from the company’s best-selling NAK9. This is a relatively lightweight pistol with a Picatinny rail on the receiver, adjustable iron sights, and wood furniture. It was designed to be both fun and simple to use; its smaller profile makes it easier to transport and maneuver while its controls remain familiar and easy to manipulate. Perhaps best of all is the fact that the Draco 9S AK is compatible with CZ Scorpion EV9 magazines.
Century Arms released the following information about the Draco 9S AK:
The NAK9 platform has long been a best seller for Century Arms and…evolved into the highly demanded Draco 9S! With the addition of features like a last round bolt hold open and a state of the art scorpion magazine adapter, all while staying true to the accuracy and durability that is synonymous with the Romanian manufactured brand, this firearm is exactly what the consumer has been looking for.
This pistol being compatible with CZ Scorpion EV9 mags is about more than just functioning well with different magazines. The EV9 magazines are curved and more reminiscent of traditional AK mags while the mags used in the NAK9 pistol were straight. This gun was created to more closely resemble an AK while retaining the quality and performance gun owners expect from Draco firearms. Its overall weight and design help mitigate felt recoil and muzzle rise while the fore-end and pistol grip facilitate a firm grip for more accurate shooting.
