From Colt’s Manufacturing . . .

Colt’s popular Snake Gun revolver series gains a new addition with the updated Anaconda. The Anaconda is a six-round, large frame, U.S. forged stainless steel double-action revolver chambered in 44 Magnum. It is available nationwide at Colt Stocking Dealers for $1,499 MSRP.

The 2021 Anaconda has been fully re-designed to utilize an oversized Python action with a bulked-up frame for added strength. The leaf-spring action provides a non-stacking, smooth-as glass trigger pull. Recoil-absorbing Hogue overmolded grips are interchangeable with all Colt Python grips. The sights are elevation and windage adjustable, and interchangeable with a simple Allen key.

Its iconic profile comes from the full-lug, ventilated rib barrel, available in 6″ and 8″ lengths. A recessed target crown offers protection and like all Colt revolvers, the cylinder rotates clockwise. The frame is drilled and tapped for optic mounts, making the Anaconda an unstoppable huntsman’s sidearm.

“The Anaconda is a legendary piece of the Snake Gun series and fills a unique space in the revolver market,” said Justin Baldini, Product Director at Colt. “Our team was dedicated to making this revival worthy of the Colt name while serving the needs of today’s gun owner.”

First manufactured in the 1990’s, it is now the fourth Snake Gun re-released by Colt. The Cobra, King Cobra, and Python have all seen a successful re-introduction to the market. The Anaconda is manufactured at Colt headquarters in West Hartford, Connecticut.

  1. Alright CZ, ACTUALLY PRODUCE THE DAMN THINGS. It’s a license to print money, and the fact that the Python waiting lists were 3 years at my LGS within a few months speaks to the true ineptitude of Colt’s management. Can this company finally be worth a damn? Fingers crossed and I fervently hope.

    • My 2021 manufactured Python is very well made. No problems at all except for that rear sight. On the other hand, I have a 60’s manufactured Colt New Frontier in 45 Colt that will not shoot worth a d@mn. The cylinder throats are almost .460″. The finish on that New Frontier is astoundingly good though. The wood grips are also exceedingly ugly as they all were.

  2. Colt doesn’t even have it listed yet on their crappy website. Has CZ not had time to fire the inept guy running it yet? They better get with the program to pay off that investment.

    Why do I say crappy and inept you ask? Look at some of their specs. An elementary school computer student could put together a better website.

    Mount Type: 3 Dot Tritium Night Sights
    Shell Count: Two-Tone Elite
    Caliber Gauge: Stainless Steel
    Compartments: Polished Stainless Steel
    Dimensions: Black G10 Half Checkered w/Scallop

    I noticed this type of thing a long time ago. I wonder what type of salary Colt management was bringing in?

    • Yes. Just don’t rely on “guns dot com”. They don’t know how to read or use a tape measure.
      I’m still longing for my 5 inch .44 mag.

  3. I hope these things live up to expectations. This was the gun that sparked my interest in firearms. I’ve dreamt of owning one since I was a child.

  4. A six-shot, 6” 44Mag revolver is not a “unique space in the revolver market”, it’s the bare minimum. You want to make something unique, build a eight-shot moonclip 357Mag to compete with the M&P R8. Something with rails to better integrate and balance WMLs against the trigger guard and more options for optic mounting. A true ground-up modern fighting revolver would be something actually unique. This is pure Fudd ‘member steel and nothing more

  5. I would rather spend my $1500.00 on reasonably priced ammunition form the guns I have than on another gun I won’t feed because of the ammo shortage.

  6. Have had aPython .357 mag.
    Shot 6 rounds at a time.
    Always five good tight shots then one flyer.
    So one of the six chambers Out
    So their machine work was never worth a FAM. (Dam.).

  7. Years ago I waited for the 4″ Anaconda in .45 Colt and never even saw one… just .44’s. But a friend did get one of the .44’s and it was the easiest to hit with .44 I’d ever shot.

  8. 1500 for the gun and another 1500 for 100rds of ammo to put through it. 44mag has been, far and away, the hardest caliber to find (for me) over the past 8-10mo.

    • Bucket full of cartridges and NO primers sux.
      I’m a telling yah it’s a conspiracy.
      ” They have the right to be armed, givem their gunms, but no ammunition. Ha Ha Ha.”
