Colt Anaconda .44 mag SS 6"
Really good condition $850?
That's an excellent price. I wish I could find one for that cheap to be honest. I have been quoted from 1200 to 1900 for a NIB one. I say grab it as they are hard as hell to come by nowadays.
That is dirt cheap!
I sold one in December for $750... but then again, I paid less than $400 for it.
Not a terribly good price, but if you really want one, there's not many around. Check the timing on it. The Anacondas were notorious for going out of time.
I forgot to mention that the trigger and hammer appear to have been jeweled, has pachmyer grips, but no box or papers. comes with 5 speed loaders, 50 rounds of 44mag and 50 rounds of 44spl.
They are hard to find in any condition.
Any interest in any trades? I,m Also an Or-E-Gun resident so a ftf would be possible?
the aftermarket grips and modifications take away the value ..
Now, am I right in thinking the Anaconda is more similar to the King Cobra, than to the Python (except for caliber, of course)? Wow. No, I wouldn't give $400 for one.
Have Model 29's become scarce or something? Colt isn't the name I thing of in .44 mag.
The Anaconda has the same action as the King Cobra and nowhere near the Python. I also like the S&W 29 or 629 better.
The Anaconda is worth more money, but the S&W is a better gun.
I sold one last summer in great shape, box papers, etc. for $800. I bumped into the guy I sold it to at a local gun shop a few weeks ago and he said he has turned down $1000+ offers for it. Maybe I sold it a little too soon.
But like another poster stated, I bought it 10 yrs ago for $450.
Oh, gee...Thanks! I bought one new back in, oh, about 1993 for less than $400 and sold it in mint condition for about the same the same year. I've been hankering for one again as well as trying to find my 6 inch Python which was MagnaPorted! Paid $300 for it back in 1978! Oh me. Oh my...
Considering purchasing one, not selling it.
I was under the impression that the pachmyers came on them from the factory, and does jeweling to make the trigger smoother and crisper, really take away from the value? The jeweling is only on the side surfaces of the trigger and hammer where they slide in and out of the frame.
I have a soft spot for full lug revolvers, I got started with a SW 686+ and this will likely be my second.
Already have a 29 in 44 that my dad gave to me. This is not a this vs. that issue I'm curious about the price asked. I just don't think Colt revolvers are gonna get affordable, or all that common again. I have the money I like the gun, I just don't want to over pay in this market.
Unfortunately, whether it improves the action or not, original parts being swapped out on a gun like that will hurt its value.
The Anaconda is a nice gun and becoming more collectable as time goes by. I really like mine but I favor my 4" Model 29's to shoot. The price sounds a little high but, finding one for sale is getting harder down here.
This is my Anaconda. I have since acquired some original rubber grips and some Colt Wood grips too. The wood grips are hard to find and expensive nowadays. I bought it for $500.00 about 3 years ago.
I'd probably bite the proverbial bullet and get this one at $850. It would go very nicely with my other snakes. I've got my eye out for one, but all I ever see is beat up Anacondas for $1,000 and up.
