Box, Paperwork & Accessories: The revolver comes in a blue plastic Colt Case with serial-matching label, two HKS speedloaders, and an assortment of factory paperwork including manual. The case has three holes at one end, one very small, one about dime-sized and one about 2 1/2″ across. Due to the double-walled construction, these holes do not show on the interior of the case. Overall, the case is in about Fair-Good condition. The speedloaders are in Excellent 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 revolver is great for hunting using .44 Magnum cartridges and with .44 Special for casual days at the range. This pistol comes in its original plastic case and with a pair of speedloaders, ready for home defense or carry. This revolver is in Fine-Excellent condition with about 97% of its stainless finish and little sign of use. Please see our photos and good luck!
