U.S.A. -( The powerful Colt Anaconda .44 Magnum winds its way into the company’s popular snake gun revolver series and crushes the competition. Ballistic Magazine recently announced, “Colt has officially won our 2021 Ballistic’s Best “Best Revolver” category.” The big, bold 2021 Anaconda was entirely re-designed with an oversized Python action, creating a double-action revolver worthy of its pedigree.

Ballistic Magazine’s writers and editors evaluate dozens of different firearms each year; 60 in 2021 alone! Shooters fire thousands of rounds downrange in a grueling series of tests, assessing guns for accuracy, reliability and more. They record each in the Ballistic scoring system and tabulate the results. Outstanding performers from each category rise to the top. And the winners receive the coveted Ballistic Best Award for 2021. The list doesn’t cater to advertisers – it’s an experience-based and data-driven review of the guns Ballistic thinks readers want to own and shoot.

So, what is so special about the 2021 Colt Anaconda? And why did it win the Ballistic Best Award?

Because the Anaconda is an unstoppable huntsman’s sidearm. Here is a list of its premium features. A linear leaf spring action provides a non-stacking, smooth-as-glass trigger pull. A bulked-up solid stainless steel frame adds strength and durability for the powerful .44 Magnum cartridge while recoil-absorbing Hogue grips soak up magnum recoil. The Anaconda includes adjustable, interchangeable sights for optimum shooting at the range or in the woods. Shooters wanting to mount an optic will appreciate the Anaconda’s drilled and tapped frame. The 2021 Anaconda Colt has 6- and 8-inch ventilated barrel options and a recessed target crown for muzzle protection.

The Colt revolver family just got a lot bigger with the addition of the Anaconda. Ballistic’s testing and accolades highlight why the Anaconda is a best-in-class revolver. Check online prices here.

The Colt 2021 Anaconda is the best design six round 44 magnum in full stainless steel in my opinion. If the cylinder can use Garrett of Texas Cartridges in 330 grain hammer head hardcast gas-check flat meplat bullet it will impress me to purchase one.


Nice looking piece,but I will stick with 629 and Redhawk.

Hopefully with the new production their cylinder throat barrel dimensions are more in line with moderen ammunition specifications than the original runs.
