  1. Colt Revolvers
    Hello all I am new to the forum. I have the opportunity to purchase an 8 inch anaconda manufactured in 1991. The gun is in excellent condition and comes with all original paperwork and matching cardboard sleeve. I am located in wonderful California and don't have access to Gunbroker auctions...

    I like the Anacondas a bit and have been working to put together a full list of all different factory versions. Here are the ones I know about, are there others? Standard .44 in 4", 5", 6" and 8" all except 5" with a DT variant Standard .45 in 4", 6" and 8" Colt Custom Shop (marked CCS4) - 4"...

    If there is a second, very slight ring towards the front of the cylinder- does that indicate mechanical wear or mis-function? maybe an alignment issue of sorts? the second wear ring is about 3/4" from the front of the cylinder. anyone seen this before?
  6. Python
    Hi guys im new to the colt forum but longtime lurker! I have a 6" brushed stainless Python and a 6" polished bright stainless anaconda. I want to sell both. I put them up on armslist for $2850 and $2150 respectively. Neither have boxes but both have original grips. Both are cosmetically great...

    Hello, Did they make a 4" bead blasted anaconda? I am considering purchasing one but dont wanna get duped. Thanks for the info.
  8. Colt Revolvers
    OK, I did a search but wasn't able to find any info on this. My only prior experience with Colt revolvers is a couple of Pythons and a New Frontier .45. I know the Anaconda is more akin to a King Cobra than a Python, and that it isn't hand made, and that it uses coil springs instead of leaf...
  9. Colt Revolvers
    Just wondering what the general consensus was between a 4in anaconda and 6in king cobra. I generally buy (higher) grade shooters so I can still enjoy them time to time. I also like to have the guns increase in value faster than inflation :) Although, I would likely never sell... unless i needed...

    Hello, new to the forum and already out with a question. i was at the gun store and there happened to be a 6" anaconda for sale. it claimed to be "like new" and "unfired". it was close to closing time so i only gave it a quick overview but it did seem to be very very clean - for a used gun, no...
  11. Colt Revolvers
    I have a question concerning the Colt Anaconda revolvers. Here in Europe I have a chance to buy an Anaconda for 250dollar. I inspected the gun and everything looks fine but the trigger was a bit loose. Apart from that minor problem the revolver was in a very good state. Also the piece of metal...
  12. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    I have a defender that I want to bobtail. Does anyone make a bobtail MSH for the Defender or New Agent?...I'm guessing they use the same size MSH. I realize that the full size bobtails utilize the defender size springs...I think. Just wanting to get info from the experts on...
