They're going to release a 1930's National Match replica complete with bluing by Doug Turnbull and hand fitting by Pete Single. MSRP $1200.



Oh wait, I thought it was the first day of April. My bad.

Okay seriously..... I just heard that they're working on bringing back the Anaconda, but whether or not that'll be announced at SHOT is anyone's guess. Whether you'll have to pay extra for a revolver with a cylinder that actually revolves is also still unknown.

Ok, your on a roll .

I too heard this and mention that the Anaconda would be offered in multiple chamberings.

I would just be happy if Colt would make a few extra SAAs so that I may happen upon one at a dealer, or from an online dealer, that isn't 3K and comes off gunbroker.

Was hoping they would announce they were going to do some commanders the same way they did the Classics ... "70 series" combat and lightweight commanders ready for gunsmithing.

I was thinking the same thing this week.
The only new gun they showed was the Python.
So I guess no two tone 38 super commander this year.

They have increased production on the SAAs, but it still isn't enough to meet demand. Given the fact that Uberti has messed up their guns with a bunch of safety crap and the Standard is just as expensive as a real-deal Colt the situation will likely continue.

I'll take a 45 LC Anaconda cut for 45 ACP moon clips please. If they were smart they'd use this as an opportunity to make a m1917 repro, and just build the Anaconda on a beefed up New Service style frame.

I’d love to see a .38SPR Combat Commander in both blued and stainless.

I have a couple of those with the new floating firing pin. I am pretty sure they could be undone with the installation of a Colt hammer.

A Colt hammer won't fit AFAIK, but you can still buy older Uberti hammers as parts plus the safety can be disabled. However the four clicks are not present and Uberti has lightened up all the springs a ridiculous amount. Great if you like to play gun games while wearing silly suits, not so great if you actually want one to replicate a period-correct Colt SAA. I understand that cowboy action shooting is the driving force behind most sales of Old West-style firearms, but in my opinion today's CAS is a joke and I'm more into historical reenactments.

I'd probably consider cowboy action if it didn't look like a bunch of 5 year olds playing dress up. Also, I wish they would stop cutting up all the old Stevens 311s, and Winchester 97s. They aren't building any more of them, and there are similar modern guns available.
