I'm looking for information about my Colt Anaconda .44 magnum. Manufactured in 1997, the pistol sports the, apparently rare, bead blasted finish. Really nice matte look, but I would like to find out more if possible. Such as production numbers, was it done in the Colt Custom shop, etc. The action on the pistol is slick as grease which makes me wonder about any Custom shop work. Any guidance or info that you may have will be greatly appreciated. I cannot seem to locate an Anaconda forum but maybe I can look up some Colt Firearm forums and see what I can learn. My experience has taught me that this very GT forum may give me all the answers I need! Thanks, ya'll!
