Is the Draco barrel basically a cut down AK barrel? If so, what barrel could I use if my barrel is bad in it?
Thanks!

The gas port is set further back than on an AKM barrel. Other than that it's pretty much the same. Why do you think your barrel is bad?

Well when I take my draco out, I usually do a few 75 rd drum mag dumps and I think it took a toll on the barrel. It's very shiny, but lacking in the rifling department.

Dracos have chrome lined bore and chambers. It should last the avid sport shooter a lifetime.

Hmmmm I just dunno about that rifling though. It isn't key holing but it sure does look small.

These are built from fully automatic guns that were cut up and built on a new receiver, so I doubt that your "mag dumps" did any more damage than the automatic fire that the weapon did prior. If it starts key-holing then you can look at other options (won't happen in your lifetime, I'm sure), otherwise don't waste your money on a non-issue.
