    At the range I frequent, they have a Colt Anaconda 6" Bbl. in .44 Mag.
    Less than a box of ammo, through it, same box with remaiing rounds
    comes with, as well as the box and papers on conssignment

    Tried the DA pull and it was kinda gritty and stacked in stages,
    I guess unfair to compare to my S&W N-Frame w/Action job


    then the price and whoa, but coming home and checking GB,
    seems at the market [email protected] $ 2400

    They can be had for $1,500-$1,600 on Gunbroker.

    I wouldn't give $2400 for an Anaconda personally.

    Just because you're seeing people asking that for them, doesn't mean that's the current price. What are they actually selling for?

    I see the ones you are talking about. None of them have any bids.
    The ones with bids are hovering around the $1500-$1700 mark.

    Putting a Wolff spring kit in it, and detailing the trigger and surrounding area will result in a decent, but still on the heavy side, trigger pull in the Anaconda. I did one for a friend some years ago, and it was much easier to shoot after that.

    I wouldn't pay that much for one, either. To me, it's a $1000-1200 gun, though the one I worked on was .45LC, which command more money these days.

    I had an Anaconda, and it was horrible inside. The machining left surfaces that gritted against one another that you absolutely could feel in the DA trigger pull. Took hours of careful stoning to knock the high spots down....good that the parts were made of hard stuff...but sad that their product was made in such a poor way.

    Ended up pretty smooth pull but still no old Smith quality type trigger. For some reason I've never gotten along with Colt DA triggers so it went back to the dealer in trade for something else. Best part is I'd paid $500 for it, and got same back in trade....kind of wish I'd held onto it now with the prices going crazy on them. But IMHO you'd have to be crazy to pay that much for one....they're not all that.
