Please keep us updated.

I’m curious. Was your Draco made from all new parts or were some from A demilled rifle? The front trunnion of mine is dated 1979.

There is the option of drilling the piston head. Years ago this was done to alleviate overgassing but could also be done to work with a can.

It is not adjustable other than making progressive larger holes until you obtain the desired effect.

Another option would be to install a gas block that is adjustable.
Hmmm , going to look into an adjustable gas block. I didn’t know I had that option. As far as drilling into the piston head , I’ll keep that in mind as a last option lol but that’s very cool . Didn’t know they did that

I sure will , and to be honest I wouldn’t be able to tell you . I won this Draco in a giveaway . The only thing I know is that it’s a Century Arms Draco. Where can I see the date on mine?

This! If your going to go through the trouble of installing a custom piston, or it’s unavailable,this is worth considering. I had the operation planned out for my Galil but the KNS finally came in stock. It would be a simple procedure with a HS or carbide but and a drill press, start small and test fire to get the perfect port size. Still confirmed how a Draco would have diff piston sizes 🤔
