Colt Reintroduces the Anaconda Revolver

Monday, March 22nd, 2021

WEST HARTFORD, CONN., (March 22, 2021) — Colt’s popular Snake Gun revolver series gains a new addition with the updated Anaconda. The Anaconda is a six-round, large frame, U.S. forged stainless steel double-action revolver chambered in 44 Magnum. It is available nationwide at Colt Stocking Dealers for $1,499 MSRP.

The 2021 Anaconda has been fully re-designed to utilize an oversized Python action with a bulked-up frame for added strength. The leaf-spring action provides a non-stacking, smooth-as glass trigger pull. Recoil-absorbing Hogue overmolded grips are interchangeable with all Colt Python grips. The sights are elevation and windage adjustable, and interchangeable with a simple Allen key.

Its iconic profile comes from the full-lug, ventilated rib barrel, available in 6″ and 8″ lengths. A recessed target crown offers protection and like all Colt revolvers, the cylinder rotates clockwise. The frame is drilled and tapped for optic mounts, making the Anaconda an unstoppable huntsman’s sidearm.

“The Anaconda is a legendary piece of the Snake Gun series and fills a unique space in the revolver market,” said Justin Baldini, Product Director at Colt. “Our team was dedicated to making this revival worthy of the Colt name while serving the needs of today’s gun owner.”

First manufactured in the 1990’s, it is now the fourth Snake Gun re-released by Colt. The Cobra, King Cobra, and Python have all seen a successful re-introduction to the market. The Anaconda is manufactured at Colt headquarters in West Hartford, Connecticut.

Dark Storm Industries Unveils the DS-25 Typhoon Sport Utility Rifle

Sunday, February 28th, 2021

Oakdale, N.Y. – Dark Storm Industries LLC (DSI), a New York based firearms manufacturer known for innovation in design and performance, is excited to announce the DS-25 Typhoon Sport Utility Rifle.

The new .308 DS-25 Sport Utility Rifle utilizes several AR-15 based parts, making it one of the lightest and most compact .308 semi-automatic rifles on the market today. The DS-25 is available in configurations for all 50 states.

Heavy hitting, Lightweight

“Six years in development, our goal for the DS-25 was to combine the range and stopping power of the .308 Winchester cartridge used in the AR-10, with the light weight and maneuverability of the AR-15 platform.” said Ed Newman, co-owner of DSI.  “Weighing only 6.7 pounds, the DS-25 Typhoon could be the lightest .308 semi-automatic rifle ever.” Mr. Newman continued.

The DS-25 Typhoon shares its feature set with the popular DS-15 Typhoon.  Based on a billet 7075 aluminum upper and lower receiver set with a nitride 4150 barrel, the Typhoon also includes a free float M-Lok handguard, as well as ambidextrous charging handle and safety selector.  The barrel and handguard length, grip, and stock/brace vary by configuration.

“The .308’s range and stopping power when combined with the compact size and weight of the DS-25 make it the perfect solution for both sporting uses such as a day at the range, as well as utility needs like hunting and defense.” said Mr. Newman.  “The mid-length gas system, paired with the reduced reciprocated weight of the AR-15 sized BCG and buffer, really reduce the recoil to near 5.56 levels.”

Configurations for All 50 States

The DS-25 will be available in four different configurations. The standard rifle includes a 16” 1:10 twist mid-length barrel along with a Hogue over-molded rubber grip and adjustable stock.  The firearm non-NFA with its shorter 12.5” barrel, front vertical grip, and SBA3 brace brings the .308 cartridge into the sub-compact “truck gun” market. DSI will also offer the DS-25 Typhoon in a fixed magazine iteration for states such as New York and California, as well as post ban for New Jersey.

“Dark Storm has always gone to great lengths to ensure that anyone who wants one of our guns has a configuration that keeps them within the confines of their respective state laws. The DS-25 is no exception,” said Mr. Newman.

More to Come

“We expect to begin shipping production DS-25 firearms late summer.” said Mr. Newman.  “We also recognize that not everyone wants to buy a complete gun. Assembling your own custom rifle is at the heart of America’s AR market. As such, we will be offering a builder’s kit which will include the DS-25 upper, lower, barrel, BCG, and buffer tube.  Customers can then assemble their own unique version using standard AR-15 components,” continued Mr. Newman. “One of the key focuses during the development of the DS-25 was designing it to utilize as many standard AR-15 components as possible.”

The DS-25 builder’s kit can be completed using an AR-15 handguard, AR-15 lower parts kit including takedown and pivot pins, bolt catch, as well as a standard AR-15 3.0oz carbine buffer system.
