    If the case has the barcode sticker on it that matches the gun, I would give about $1200 for a flawless example...Start knocking off dollars for dings, scratches, and wear.

    hold the phone tyrone!!!

    if you start polishing you will have to polish the whole thing or the dings will become the "bright spots"

    I am more likely to leave it alone than go "bright polish"

    The most I would do is give it a little shine with Mothers and a soft cloth...It will brighten the gun up nicely.

    I vigorously rub my SS guns to make 'em shine....Of course, my middle name is Bubba.

    i wasnt planing on polising the gun myself or at all it doesnt really need it.
    it isnt absolutely perfect but it is just as nice as any other example that you will find that has been actually shot.

    You're gonna love it! The Anacondas are awesomely accurate except for a few of the 1st year guns.

    After you shoot it some, let us know what you think of the Hogue wood grips that are on it. I've thought of getting some.

    Here is my 1993 six inch one.

    The .45s bring considerably more than the .44s.

    Very nice gun. I am not a huge colt fan, though I recognize they are put together with care and quality, but I would really love to have an anaconda. I feel like my redhawk needs a sexy girlfriend.

    Point taken and understood. :) However, I'm not so sure about the homely part. I think all three are handsome in thieir own right.

    My friend CPE is partial to Colts

    and he is right about the Ruger...but he is wrong about the Model 29. She is a beauty.

    "The eye of the beholder".... That Ruger looks pretty darn good to me.

    G-- A man of your experience and wisdom should know that "good looks" are not always the most satisfying. :D

    You are correct about the 29. She is a beauty... the first runner up, though. The Ruger just has a good personality.:D
