Scarce example of the New Orleans Cook Rifle serial number 243. This is the exact gun pictured on page 46 and 47 of Confederate Longarms and Pistols by Hill and Anthony. Lock plate sharpely marked with confederate flag, Cook & Brother and N.O. 1861. Overall metal has a dark patina with the classic Cook barrel twist visible in places. No barrel markings are visible and the bore is dark with riffling visible at the muzzle. A lug for a sabre bayonet is present and has the number 79 clearly stamped on the side. The photographs in the book show a rear sight that is not on the gun now. The ramrod is a replacement and is incorrect for this rifle. The brass bands are correct Cook bands with the end band having a sling swivel and what appears to be serial number 4915. The nose cap is a correct Cook that has the serial number of 511 and an indiscernible mark and with an additional serial number 16 on the extreme end. The wood is nice with a few minor nicks and dings from use.
