Mechanics: The action functions correctly and the cylinder lockup has very little play on each chamber. The double action trigger is smooth and the single action is crisp. We did not fire this handgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None.
Our Assessment: Colt introduced the Anaconda built on a new, heavy “AA” frame to compete with the Ruger Redhawk and S&W Model 29 revolvers. Our impression is that this revolver probably offers a smoother double action pull than the Ruger and is more rugged than the S&W. This revolver would make for a fun day of shooting at the range. This example is in Fine condition with about 92% of its stainless finish. Please see our photos and good luck!
