    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?

    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.
