I am going tomorrow to order my mini draco,was going to get a regular draco til I saw a the mini :) . It's $425 at the local shop,and he is going to work me a smoking deal on some ammo. The only bummer is they are on backorder and won't be out to mid to late july :-(

Saw several mini-Dracos at the local gun show this past weekend here in San Antonio. Not my cup of tea...

Well I have plans for it,not really digging the grip. I was going to get the regular draco but this one caught my eye and being new makes it more desirable.

I know what you mean Hockey,I am waiting for the phone call from my local dealer to tell me to come and pick it up. This thing is going to look awesome with the 75rd drum on it. There is a local shop here that does the liquid coating on anything and I was thinking about getting something on the gun done in it. Check it out here is their website. Liquid Illusions - Home

It's time finally there was a message on my answering machine that said it is in and I can come and get it. Well as you all know how that goes,I have been waiting 3 months almost and am finally going to hold it tomorrow I can't wait.

Here it is and the case I made for it,they have tons of these drill boxes at work they just throw them away. All you have to do is cut out the inside and put some eggcrate in there. The gun is still unfired it has been a crazy weekend so it will have to wait til next weekend :( .

Going to swap out the rear handgrip with one of the ergonomic ones from ctd and the front grip is going to be a surprise you'll have to wait and see ;-)

be careful what you do to the front hand guard as the last time I checked a vertical forward grip on a pistol was a big BATFE no-no. And the Dracos are classified as a pistol which exempts them from 922R but gives them their own restrictions on what can be done as far as modifications do

You are right! It is time for a new gun. I am thinking a s&w 686 .357 magnum with 6 inch barrel.

I am just going to do some minor modification to it,nothing that would make it illegal trust me I know the laws very well :). A new .357 sounds awesome Russ,I really want a .50ae desert eagle that's my next purchase as well as a springfield 1911

Uhmn, you are familar with foregrips on handguns and the ATFs stand on this? Just making sure you don't end up being the one with the big surprise! :)

I am not changing the front grip out guys I am just going to modify it a little and refinish it. And if any of you guys ever held one of these mini's it would be VERY easy to get your finger out in front of that barrel so I will be putting a muzzlebreak on there for sure.

I am making some progress on the gun,I got to shoot it sunday and had a couple hickups on cycling so I am taking it back tomorrow to the dealer I bought it from. That thing is so loud and the percussion is crazy and I just love it :).
