How much is the new Colt Anaconda?

The Anaconda is a six-round, large-frame, stainless steel double-action revolver made in the United States. It is chambered in 44 Magnum. It is available for $1,499 MSRP through Colt 'Stocking Dealers countrywide.

The Anaconda was announced in January 2008 and went on sale in May that year. It is named after the snake, which is also called anacondas, due to their deadly venom. The Anaconda's barrel is manufactured by Wilson Combat.

It is claimed to be the most powerful single action revolver in its class, with up to 1,000 foot-pounds of torque from its 6-inch barrel. It uses a 4-inch round hammer for deep penetration and maximum damage.

The Anaconda has been praised for its design and construction, with many aspects being taken directly from the popular 1911 pistol. It features a flat-top slide, dual-spring system, and a snag-less trigger mechanism.

However, it is not as small as its name suggests, weighing about 11 ounces empty. Also, due to its size, you need a strong hand to handle it safely. Finally, it is not recommended for beginners.

Colt currently offers two other large-frame revolvers: The Sentinel and the Expert Elite.

What frame is a Colt Anaconda?

The Anaconda is a six-round, large-framed revolver for those who are unfamiliar with it. The original variant was chambered in.44 Magnum and.45 Colt. Today, the majority of these guns are.38 Specials. There have been several other chamberings offered over the years including 12 Ga and.30-06 Springfield.

Colts currently offer two versions of the Anaconda: traditional and ultra-modern. The traditional model features a 3" barrel with a flat top, while the ultra-modern version has a 4" barrel with a fluted finish. Both use the same size round nose.357 Magnum cartridge. The Anaconda is still manufactured by the Connecticut company which originally introduced it in 1964. This gun is unique among modern revolvers because it uses an older style cylinder release instead of a more modern latch system. This means you can only load six bullets into the chamber at one time.

The frame is made from steel with some aluminum parts added for weight savings. It has a steeply angled rear sight for quick target acquisition and a flat front sight for accurate shooting. Overall length on the standard model is 10". The weight is 5.5 lbs.

There are many myths and misconceptions about the Anaconda.

What is a Colt 44 anaconda?

The Colt Anaconda is a large-framed double-action revolver created and manufactured by the Colt Manufacturing Company in 1990. It has a full length under-barrel ejection-rod lug and a six-round cylinder. Chambered for the wealthy 44 Magnum as well as the similar but less powerful 45 AutoMag, the Anaconda was designed to be an affordable alternative to the more expensive 45 ACP Smith & Wesson. The Anaconda's solid construction and easy handling characteristics have made it popular with shooters who prefer larger frames.

Colt first introduced the Anaconda in 1990. Available in.44 AutoMag configurations, these revolvers are now considered collector items.

The name "Anaconda" comes from the Spanish word for snake, and these large-frame revolvers do resemble the lengths of snakes. However, they are actually based on the frame design of the Army Model 1911A1 pistol used by the United States military from 1911 to 1989. The Anaconda uses the same size barrel, trigger, and other components as the 1911 so it can be easily converted from one caliber to another. In addition, some parts are interchangeable between the two models.

These are large, heavy revolvers that are not intended for self-defense but instead for hunting large game such as deer and boar. They are not recommended for use against multiple attackers.

Who is the product director for the Colt Anaconda?

"The Anaconda is a famous item of the Snake Gun line that fits a distinct niche in the revolver industry," stated Colt Product Director Justin Baldini. "Our team was committed to ensuring that this rebirth lived up to the Colt name while also meeting the demands of today's gun buyers."

Baldini continued, "We took many factors into consideration when designing and developing the Anaconda including but not limited to: size, weight, feel, performance, and appearance. The result is a large-frame revolver that offers the same quality and reliability as our other offerings but with more features than ever before."

What’s a Colt Anaconda worth?

A new Colt ANACONDA pistol costs $2,199.66, while a used one costs $2,120.20. This makes the ANACONDA very expensive compared to other pistols of its time and class. The gun is also extremely heavy at 38 ounces (1128 grams).

Colt's official website states that their average price is $715.00. On third-party sites, these guns have been sold for as much as $10,000.00 online and in person.

The main advantage of the Colt Anaconda over other firearms from this era is its unique design. It has several patented features including an underfolding trigger mechanism, a rotating bolt assembly, and a disconnector device on the barrel that prevents firing when the muzzle is covered by water or otherwise blocked.

Other manufacturers had produced handguns with some of these features before the Colt Anaconda, but no other firearm matched it step for step. Today, these rare weapons command high prices on the collector's market.

In conclusion, the Colt Anaconda is an expensive pistol to own and operate. Its weight, size, and complexity make it unsuitable for self-defense.
