COLT ANACONDA COLT ANACONDA NEW COLT MAGNAPORT CUSTOM .44 MAGNUM 2022 MANUFACTURE WITH BURRIS 2-7 HANDGUN SCOPE, BURRIS SIX SCREW RINGS, TONS OF AMMO, GALCO KODIAK HOLSTER++
COLT ANACONDA 8″ HUNTER: Brand new 2022 manufacture, .44 Magnum. This revolver should need no introduction so you we won’t give you one.
MAGNAPORT: Shipped to Magnaport for their compensation package. The .44 Magnum is not a fun gun to shoot 50 times at the range.. but compensating this 8 inch long hunter alleviates the recoil to more than manageable levels and allows you to stay on target if you need a follow up.
BURRIS OPTICS/RINGS/PICATINNY RAIL: What a pain in the arse. First you have to get a picatinny rail for a new Colt Anaconda (luck w/ that). Then install it. Problem is you need a 1/16″ punch for the lock pin but alas all 1/16″ punches aren’t exactly 1/16″. Then you need a looong punch to get through both sides so custom order one. More luck w/ that. Once you get the picatinny rail on order up a handgun scope.. but not Leupold. Burris truly makes the best handgun scopes and yes they are relatively inexpensive. This Burris is a 2-7×32 Item 200299. These have come a long way and offer generous eye relief at the longer sight distance. Crisp, clear, easy to find the reticle. The reticle itself has an integrated BDC for your longer shooting distances. Mounted on six screw Burris rings.
HUNTING W/ THE OPTIC: Ok kids.. hunting with this revolver is best done from a ground blind, tree stand, or box stand. Once your deer meanders into that 50-60 yard range you cock the revolver, brace the revolver (no off hand crap) so it is rock steady, acquire the reticle and the target and fire one round. Hopefully you are done. Note the optic is NOT designed to be held at full arms length away; it is fired with your elbow bent back further than the norm. This is what allows you to acquire the perfect optical picture. Yes you can shoot and kill deer at 200 yards with this ensemble but you had better be good. Real good. About 100 yards for me with an Anaconda is the limit but I want that perfect shot. Scope will dial to 7x which is waay more than you will need. Don’t get me wrong; I walked around a heavily vegetated “corner” and stumbled on a monster doe and successfully dropped it.. but if you are stalking you are way better off with a red dot. Lot faster acquisition than a handgun scope.
GALCO KODIAK HOLSTER: Designed to keep a large hunting handgun both comfortable and accessible, Galco’s Kodiak™ Chest Holster carries a magnum revolver diagonally across the torso. Using the same principles as modern backpacks, a padded shoulder strap is used in conjunction with a torso strap that allows for instant adjustments throughout a day spent afield. As the torso strap is tightened, weight is shifted off the shoulder strap, allowing for a full day of comfortable field carry.
