    Colt Snakes?

    Ive decided that I want to get all the Colt Snake guns. I have 2 Pythons and my next one is going to be an Anaconda. From a collectors stand point what should I look for? Barrel length? Finish? Year? Caliber? After that maybe a King Cobra.

    You should start by looking at Boa prices.

    That’s what kept me from that goal. 10 years ago a nice Python could be had for $1K but Boa were $5K. I said no way. Today a nice Boa is $15K, still no way....

    All the snake guns...... As soon as you have one of each, then you will want one of each barrel length and finish. Collect what you like. The 44mag is the more common caliber of the Anaconda and the 6" barrel is the most common length. For regular production there is also 4" and 8" barrel lengths in both calibers. Then there are limited runs of them as well including but not limited to a 5" barrel, First Edition, Realtree (with a few different variations of that one), legacy edition, bead blast, Ported versions and I'm sure plenty others. From a collector standpoint when it comes to Anacondas, less common is "better".

    I think the Boa is going to be unreachable for me unless I hit the lotto. Crazy money

    Viper was my last and hardest to find. Beware of fakes! Paid more than my NIB Python Elite

    I tried to collect the harder to find ones:

    Anaconda- 5 inch or 4 inch 45 Colt
    King Cobra - 2 inchblue
    Diamondback - 2 inch .22 cal
    Cobra - 3 inch .22 cal

    Good luck! And post pictures of your progress

    Boa and Viper...they will determine what is best to collect after you have them...and by what little money you have left to split between the Python, Cobra, King Cobra, Anaconda and Diamondback.

    I do already have 2 6" royal blue Pythons.....so I could sell one of them to use towards another. But then again I really don't want to get rid of any of them

    Brownells recently posted a "From the Vault" video on the Boa:

    I'd say skip the boa and collect the condition, model and features that you either really want or what comes your way. The thing I've learned from gun ownership (for me) is that the hunt is the best part. Then shooting. While GunBroker and other sites are great, I really like finding a something special at a LGS or pawn shop. For me that is where the magic happens!
