Century Arms is expanding its Draco line of compact AK-pattern pistols to include the new NAK9 chambered in 9 mm. The company has wisely designed the magazine well to accept factory and after-market magazines designed for Glock G17 and G19 pistols in capacities ranging from 15 to 33 rounds.

Manufactured in Romania, this blowback-operated pistol features a stamped receiver, hardwood fore-end furniture, a black polymer grip and an 11.14" barrel. The mil-standard 14x1 mm threading of the muzzle accepts various muzzle devices and sound suppressors. The controls follow typical AK standards with a right-side mounted safety selector, steel bow trigger and lever-style magazine release. The pistol ships with AK-style adjustable iron sights and a Picatinny rail for optics.

The NAK9 has an overall length of 19.1", an unloaded weight of 6.38 lbs. and ships with one 33-round magazine. A sling mount is attached to the rear of the receiver to accommodate single-point slings. The pistol will have a suggested retail price of $724.99
