From the first model offered by Samuel Colt in the 1830s until the early 2000s, the heart of Colt's Manufacturing was the revolver. Colt made its name with its innovative revolving cylinder, first seen in the 1836 Paterson, and revolvers were a principal part of the company's product offerings until 2005, when the last limited-production models rolled out of Colt's factory. Now, Colt is reviving its legendary "Snake Gun" lineup, and the latest re-introduction in 2021 is the Colt Anaconda chambered in .44 Mag.

Built on an enlarged Python receiver, the Colt Anaconda revolver is made from stainless steel and incorporates the same Linear Leaf Spring mechanism as the second-generation Python. This contributes to the smooth trigger pull and crisp break encountered on these newer Colt revolvers, giving revolver fans a better experience than that found even on original Pythons and Anacondas.

Each Colt Anaconda is built with a double-action/single-action operating system and includes many of the characteristic traits first seen in the Python. These include the ventilated sighting rib, full underlug, ramped front sight and characteristic Colt cylinder latch. The guns are outfitted with Hogue rubber grips, which help to absorb recoil from hot .44 Mag. loads. You'll find fully adjustable sights on the Anaconda, as well as a drilled-and-tapped frame for mounting optics. At the muzzle end of the gun is a recessed target crown, which enhances accuracy while protecting the muzzle from damage.

The second-generation Colt Anaconda features a six-round cylinder and can be had with either a 6" or 8" barrel. Depending on barrel length, the overall length of the revolver measures between 13" to 15". The suggested retail price on the Colt Anaconda is $1,499. For more information, visit colt.com.
