Congratulations on picking up a fine White muzzleloader. Which model and Caliber do you have? I would guess a G-Series Whitetail, G-Series Bison, W-Series Super-91, SG-Series White Lightning since you said it was a White Muzzleloading Systems
The history of White can pretty much be researched on Doc's site. It has been a roller coaster ride from the begining, but the rifles are as sound as they come. The calibers range from .410, .451, .504, .540, and 12 ga.
The early Whites were Armstech's
.Then in the early 90's it was White Muzzleloading Systems
, the W-Series Super-91's, G-Series Whitetail were the more popular models. In the mid-90's it was White Shooting Systems
. About 1997 it was Muzzleloading Technologies Incorporated (MTI)
, M-97 Whitetails, M-97 Blacktails (teflon coated), and M-98 Elite Hunters were the main models. Around 2000 Spitfire bought them and just labeled them White Rifles
, then later White Rifles, LLC.
Some of the models over the years.
W-Series Super Safari (Full Stock)
G-Series Whitetail (also 500 Roger Raglin Signature models w/White (by Lyman) peep sights)
G-Series Blacktail (teflon coated)
G-Series Bison (heavy barrel, blued)
G-Series Odyssey (Christiansen carbon fiber wrapped barrel)
SG-Series White Lightning (.504 only)
BG-Series White Thunder (12 ga Shotgun)
BG-Series Tominator (12ga Shotgun) (Ray Eye Signature)
M-97 Whitetail (also offered in a Roger Raglin signature model)
M-98 Elite Hunter
M-98 Super Safari (Full Stock)
M-97 Ultra-Mag (Sportsmans Warehouse exclusive)
Super-91 II (Doc's Special Edition Signature Model)
I know I am forgetting at least one other odd-ball model of inline, but can't remember it right now. There were also some sidelock Sporting Rifles over the years too. Doc built a few rifles in .367 caliber for the White Shooting Team, and won the Nationals in 2006. I think it was his last ditch effort to secure a buyer, but so far there have been no takers.
I have owned a White since about 94-95, but not until I drooled over them for a few years, and picked up a couple more along the way.
That might be a bit more than you asked for, but it was a fun ride while it lasted.
Smoke 'em if ya got 'em!
Oh, and you have to tell us what you paid, so we can be jealous.
I forgot the Alpha, the one they never built.
