I recently purchased an anaconda, always liked them but never owned one. I start looking up info on them, and see there were problems early on with the bore. A couple of folks already dated my gun to around 91, were the problems taken care of by then? (I havent had time to take it to the range yet). Bore looks to be polished very well, rifling is sharp, crown good, forcing cone good, "looks" good.
Thanks for any info

I think I heard that the problem was with the cylinder throats being oversized.

In any case, I'm sure the problem was fixed by '91.

The cylinder throat problem is very much more common in 45 Colt chambered Anacondas.

Frow what I've seen, the most common barrel problem in early Anaconda production was related to the factory overtightening the barrel- this creates a tight spot in the barrel.
