Overall Condition: This handgun retains about 98% of its metal finish. The gun does not appear to have been used much if at all. The gun was test fired at the factory, no gun is ever “unfired” in our opinion. This one has seen very little use, and if the owner ever shot it I would be surprised. There is a faint mark on the cylinder from normal operation and clearing. There are faint scratches on the surface from buffing and cleaning. The screw heads are Sharp. The markings are Clear. Overall, this handgun rates in about Excellent condition.
Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We did not fire this handgun.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: The revolver comes in an Americase airline approved travel case. The keys are in the case and the combination lock has never been changed from the factory “000” default. There is an assortment of paperwork from Colt and Americase. Please see the pictures for the accessories included and condition.
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 pistol comes with an Americase and first edition plaque inside, great for display. The “First Edition” Anacondas came with this bright finish that almost looks like a polished nickel, all manufactured in 1990 with serial numbers ranging from “MM00001” to “MM01000”. Only 1,000 were manufactured in this configuration, Good Luck!
