Yes and no. Barrel length BY ITSELF has a minor contribution to accuracy.

But from a practical standpoint, shorter sight radius degrades USABLE accuracy, and lack of shoulder stock degrades stability/ control.

Clamp rifle and pistol both in a vise, little difference- but most folks don't carry a bench vise around.

How about the isreali sling that helps stabalize the ak pistols almost like a stock accept you push forward and the sling tightens up it has a cheek well on it dosent turn it into sbr

Better than nothing- but if t'were better than a shoulder stock it would be on ALL the AKs.

I bought a "Draco C" on a complete whim, and so far put 100rds thru it. Not an expert, but it is - IMHO - a "fun gun".

Looks kewl, impractical, but as a range toy its a hoot; giant fireballs and deafening loud.

Accuracy - who cares, at 10 yards you'll put a fist-sized hole in the zombie and set him on fire at the same time.

I've fired them, and the muzzle blast from the

shortened barrel creates a flip which affects my


I don 't think it's gambling to say that

for the average shooter in normal

circumstances,(i.e.-a person holding the

pistol normally, and not some lionized test)

not nearly as accurate.

This is one gun I would definitely try before you buy...

My understanding from limited first hand experience is that the substantially shorter barrel will take away a good bit of velocity. As pointed out already, you also lose a lot of an already somewhat shorter sighting radius most AKs are given. Combine all that with the lack of a stock by which to get a consistent place for your cheek and control recoil and you are left with a mean looking pistol... The upside is when compared to other pistols you are likely hitting a target with a much greater force on target and... hell... you have 30 chances to hit what you're aiming for... right?

i'm thinking a folding stock would be much more practical. some sort of full stock when needed, and folded away, the compactness a person may need. but personally i would still rather have a full regular stocked version over a pistol version.
