I have the “new” version of the King Cobra. I am extremely impressed with the SA/DA trigger. Very smooth and crisp. Accuracy is great.
I for one think the new Colts are every bit as functional as the original. No disappointments.

I did get to shoot a few rounds from an original Anaconda and must say i was impressed. It was a lot better gun than my S&W 629 which frankly I found to be a disappointment all round. It couldn't stand up to factory ammo, crapping out in 250 rounds. S&W fixed the gun and it crapped out again in another 200 rounds. I wonder just how well would the Colt hold up under 250+ rounds of factory? Now my old model Ruger Blackhawk and old model Super Blackhawk have had well over 1,000 round, all full power Elmer Keith type loads and are still going strong. I'll have to take a look at one of the new Anacondas but probably will pass. The older Colt that I shot had a grip that required a large hand to shoot double action. The smaller frame of the S&W is more suitable for my small paws. I find the Redhawks barely useable again due to my small hands. I do shoot them well in single action mode. I did find the original Anaconda to be a fine revolver, just too darn big for my use.

It is really hard to out perform S&W. I always look forward to the purchase of a S&W,
or Ruger-Marlin.

I was all excited about the Colt Python .357 when Colt announced their release.
Though it would be neat to have one, and it would be my first Colt.

Then I lost interest.

Now, I though it would be neat to own a Colt Anaconda .44Rem Mag.

Lost interest.

Oh well, the Best to CZ/Colt and their Endeavors.

P.S. I see you can get your hands on a new Colt AR15. My Favorite
Local Gun Store did get in 4 each, Colt AR15 M4s .223; price $1350 each.

Shoot often, Share your Sport, Take care of the Environment, and Be Safe.
