Century Arms’ 100% American Made Draco AK47 Pistol

Delray Beach, Fla. –– Century Arms, North America’s premier AK manufacturer, has announced the release of a 100% U.S. made version of the highly sought after Draco AK47 Pistol to meet rapidly increasing market demand.

“The Romanian Draco Pistol imports have been infrequent due to Military and Government contracts at the Cugir factory,” said Jason Karvois, Century Arms Director of Sales. “Due to the popularity of the Draco pistol, and overwhelming demand, Century Arms has started to manufacture the Draco pistols at our Vermont factory to be able to consistently offer them to the U.S. market.”

Based on the AK47 rifle design, the Draco pistol combines rifle-cartridge firepower in compact pistol-form. Chambered in the ever-popular 7.62x39mm cartridge, the Draco pistol features a 10.5″ barrel and weighs 6.3 lbs., making it lightweight and handy in tight quarters. The U.S. Draco comes standard with a maple wood handguard, standard AKM sights, readily accepts any AK47 magazine or drum, and best of all – is completely made in the U.S.A.! Read more

NSSF-Adjusted NICS Background Checks for June 2017

The June 2017 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figure of 1,016,213 is a decrease of 10.9 percent compared to the June 2016 NSSF-adjusted NICS figure of 1,140,088. For comparison, the unadjusted June 2017 FBI NICS figure 1,888,266 reflects an 11.1 percent decrease from the unadjusted FBI NICS figure of 2,123,334 in June 2016.

The second quarter 2017 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figure of 3,116,282 is a decrease of 2.0 percent over the 3,179,825 figure for second quarter 2016.

The adjusted NICS data were derived by subtracting out NICS purpose code permit checks and permit rechecks used by several states such as Connecticut, Illinois, and Utah for CCW permit application checks as well as checks on active CCW permit databases. NSSF started subtracting permit rechecks in February 2016.

Though not a direct correlation to firearms sales, the NSSF-adjusted NICS data provide an additional picture of current market conditions. In addition to other purposes, NICS is used to check transactions for sales or transfers of new or used firearms. FBI NICS and NSSF-adjusted NICS figures do not account for firearm sales using approved alternate permits such as a concealed carry license. Several states allow the use of such alternate permits. It should be noted that these statistics represent the number of firearm background checks initiated through the NICS. They do not represent the number of firearms sold or sales dollars. Based on varying state laws, local market conditions and purchase scenarios, a one-to-one correlation cannot be made between a firearm background check and a firearm sale. Read more
