Our Assessment: There is not much to say other than you need this pistol. If you clicked on the listing, looked at all the pictures, and made it all the way down here in the description then what are you waiting for? The gun is in great shape for a shooter and a new set of grips and some polish on the stainless and it will really pop. This gun was not abused by the previous owner, it has been used and respectfully enjoyed. Some might say this is a little overkill for home defense, but ask your wife, she will sleep better with an Anaconda in the bedroom.
