Featured Gun: First Edition Colt Anaconda!
Colt’s popular snake gun revolver series was thrusted into popularity among gun owners with its Python chambered in .357 Magnum. However, Colt’s relatively late entry into the large-bore handgun market raised the stakes with its Anaconda. Chambered in .44 Magnum, the Anaconda was introduced by Colt to compete with other .44 Magnum revolvers such as the Smith & Wesson Model 29 and the Ruger Redhawk and Blackhawk. Each Colt Anaconda is built with a double-action/single-action operating system and includes many of the characteristic traits first seen in the Python. These include the ventilated sighting rib, full underlug, ramped front sight and characteristic Colt cylinder latch.
Colt ceased mass production of the Anaconda in 1999 and purchasing one was typically only available through Colt’s custom shop. Colt did revive the Anaconda in 2021 just as it did the Python in 2020. Finding an original Colt Anaconda produced in the 90s will come with a high cost, but those are more coveted by collectors.
