Default Which Draco brand is the best?

Hi all. I've been wanting to get a Draco AK 7.62x39 pistol. And most probably will be adding an Ace folding stock and submitting the form 1 (SBR).
My question is, which brand is the most popular or reliable for this Draco pistol?
I seen the Arsenal SLR106U st my LGS. But it eats .223 instead the 7.62x39.
I don't know much about AK variants but i heard of Yugo, Romanian and Century Arms Draco.
So please feed me with your knowledge regarding my plan and anyone knows where to buy?
Thank you

A Romanian-made guns (hi-cap, dimples, chrome-lined, CHF bbl, threaded muzzle, and Romy FCG) marked as "Draco C" have the underfolder trunnion built-in, the "non C" does not. The Draco Mini - don't know. You'll know a mini when you see it. Supposedly no more imported of ANY Draco.

Fun guns! My Dragon -



ETA: the new Yugo PAP pistol in 7.62x39 has been trickling in and folks have been snagging them up since the Dracos have dried up. Things like canted gas/trunnions are rumored to have been seen, whatever - good Yugo build quality but typical non-chromed bbl.
They have a slant to the rear of the recvr which creates a challenge for adding any type of stock given the the S/N is right near where an U/F trunnion would fit.

Google "Yugo M92 pistol"; someone did a review of one and posted it on absolutely every single AK forum in the known world. (He may work for Zastava or Arsenal as he did the same for an Arsenal AK he bought. Mighty proud of his purchases unless he got some deal to shill product... )

IO inc is an American company that started out building & importing rifles from polish kits. Now they only import 1 rifle which is Polish made the rest of the rifles are 100% American Made. I haven't shot there Hellpup but heard good things about them & shooting their rifles makes me want one really bad. IO puts a guarantee of 2" w/ irons on the full size rifles if I was gonna turn an AK pistol into an SBR I would get a hold of a Hellpup.

FWIW, base DRACOs (the non C versions) can still be found in dealers stocks; seen several at gunshows on tables. You won't get the U/F trunnion in the base version, but you still get the chromed CHF barrel.
