Atlantic Firearms has announced the launch of a customized Draco pistol. They partnered with several other companies to source the different aftermarket furniture parts and the Cerakoting service for these Draco pistols. The host rifles are the same well-known Romanian import guns chambered in 7.62x39mm.
The Cerakote finish of bright silver color is outsourced to Elevenmile Arms. With the exception of the furniture, most of the other parts are Cerakoted including the internal surfaces of the receiver and even the cleaning rod. Once the Cerakoted guns come back to Atlantic Firearms, they install the aftermarket parts in their premises. These parts include the KGB LLC (KGB stands for Kraft Gun Builders) MG47 black pistol grip, SB Tactical stabilizing brace, JMac Customs AIMR Atlantic Firearms exclusive flash hider and a Leapers UTG PRO quad rail handguard. The overall length of this firearm is 21.5″ and it has an 11.75″ barrel.
Here is also a video published by Atlantic Firearms telling about this custom Draco pistol.
This customized Draco pistol is listed on Atlantic Firearms’ website at an MSRP of $1,159. The pistol comes with one 30-round magazine which also has the same bright silver Cerakote finish.
As mentioned in the video, this gun might not be for everybody and I think what will make many people shy away from purchasing this firearm is the color of Cerakote. That being said, I think if they could offer different color options for this rig, they could possibly expand the potential customer base. Popular colors such as the OD green, FDE or gray could attract more customers.
What do you think about this gun? Is it a build that you were waiting to be available as an off-the-shelf option which you may even consider as an SBR host or you’ll pass this one? Share your thoughts in the comments section and let us know why you like or dislike this particular Draco.
