Rare Confederate Rifle .577 Cal. and Saber Bayonet produced by Cook and Brother, Athens GA. Dated 1863. 

When you do encounter one of these rare Confederate Rifles, they are pretty well used up and even then command strong prices. This gun is in fantastic condition for Confederate survivors. All matching serial #3499 on all parts with the exception of the hammer screw, #70 and the upper barrel band #3187. Most likely parts refitted at the factory. The lock functions properly and is marked “COOK & BROTHER / ATHENS GA. / 1863” with serial # “3499”. Note Confederate “Stars and Bars” flag stamped on the left. Breech of barrel also clearly marked with same address as on the lock, serial # 3499 and matching “1863” date. Metal surfaces are smooth with an untouched deep plum patina. There is minor pin prick pitting around the bolster from combat use. Note breech marked “PROOVED” with eagle head stamp. The barrel exhibits the characteristic factory twist which can clearly be seen in the flaw on top of the barrel. Note Cook and Brother brass saber bayonet adapter mounted on the barrel. Bore has wear but rifling is distinct. Brass hardware has a mellow patina and contrasts nicely with the dark walnut stock. The stock has some typical wear from use but is in truly remarkable shape for a Confederate long arm. No missing wood at the bolster. There is a minor 3″ stress crack emanating from the front lock screw. Purely cosmetic. Wood maintains a consistent color and texture with no repairs, stretching, putty or other unwanted monkey business. The classic Cook and Brother saber bayonet has a brass handle that perfectly matched the brass hardware on the rifle. It is not numbered and neither is the adapter. The lock spring is present and unbroken. It fits the gun very well but does not lock as the adapter has the triangular slot and the bayonet has the rectangular slot. It totally fits and displays great in spite of not locking. One could eventually find a triangular slotted bayonet and it would no doubt lock up tight. This is a fine quality Confederate weapon that you rarely see offered for sale. Ex. Damon Mills, Ex. Richard Ferry.
