A lot depends on how much action it's seen. The one I have, a 4", is in excellent condition, I parted with $850 value for it.
I've seen many Anacondas' at pawn shops and gun stores I would'nt give them $300 for because they are beat to heck. They still look good though.

bike, i would say its above 80 percent...it hasn't been fired a whole lot according to the guy i bought it from who is a person i know and have no reason not to trust...the trigger pull is amazing..guessing 2.5 pounds..so light I've accidently fired before i acquired the target a few times before i got use to it

Tex, I'm gonna say that has a trigger job, or they disguised a Redhawk on ya, lol.
Mine, without a gauge is an easy an 8lb trigger DA. Are you saying SA pull or DA?

that would be SA..the DA feels pretty good to..bust guess 6-9 pounds..not sure i dont shoot it double action much

Most .44 magnums see very little shooting due to cost I wouldn't worry about the action in it. As far as cosmetics go, a little polishing will make even the most beat up any SS gun look great. I think $650 was a great price.

I agree with Coltpythonelite on this one, odds are usually in your favor with big bore handguns not being shot loose. That's not to say you shouldn't give em a good look over before you plunks down your dough.
You got a pretty good deal on that snake in today's crazy Colt pricing. Double action shooting doesn't get much better than a nice Colt! A little dry firing may be in order to get used to that SA, you don't want it going off on ya before your ready.

650 is an amazing price, even with the pink spots :eek:
