The Colt Anaconda is a large-frame double-action magnum revolver produced by Colt. It is chambered in either .44 Magnum, .44 Special or .45 Long Colt. Introduced in 1990, the Anaconda was intended to be a competitor to established .44 Magnum revolvers, like the Smith & Wesson Model 29 and Ruger Blackhawk. It was originally marketed toward target shooters and hunters, as the revolver is generally considered too large to be carried as a duty weapon by police officers.

The Anaconda was remarkable for two reasons when it was first introduced. The first point is that it marked Colt returning to manufacturing a large frame double-action revolver since the Colt New Service was discontinued in 1946. The other point was the Anaconda was the first .44 Magnum revolver to be manufactured by Colt in its history. A latecomer to the .44 Magnum market, the Anaconda initially had some teething problems, but a redesign of the barrel improved it and it gained a reputation for one of the most accurate mass-produced .44 Magnum revolvers on the market. The revolver was only available in stainless steel. Though the original production of the Anaconda ended in 1999, the model was still available through the company's custom shop until 2003. On March 22 2021, Colt announced the reintroduction of the Anaconda. Like the 2020 Python, the 2021 Anaconda has a slightly larger, stronger frame than the original and a simplified action designed to withstand the stress of magnum loads to a greater degree. The Anaconda is the second of Colt's "Snake Guns" to be reintroduced, with the Colt Python being first reintroduced in January 2020.
