Are the pistol ak47s just as accurate as the full size ak47 rifles??
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

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.
