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 rifle.zara_puppy said:Can anyone tell me about White Muzzleloading Systems muzzloaders? I picked one up today at an auction (it looked like a nice firearm) but I can't seem to find any information about them.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
OK- here goes...Busta said:zara_puppy,
That was a horrible deal! For them! Answer any/all of the following you can, and I will be able to tell you exactly what you have, including who made the barrel. Does yours have the gray flecked stock or black? How long is the barrel, 22" or 26"? 1 or 2 ramrod thimbles, metal or plastic? Aluminum or Delrin ramrod? 1 or 2 bolts holding the action/barrel in the stock. Funnel crown or stepped crown? 6 lands and grooves or 7 lands and grooves? Marble sights (fiber optic) or Williams sights? #11, musket cap, or 209 ignition? If you have a M-97 Whitetail Hunter, I don't think it was made by White Muzzleloading Systems, probably MTI , White Rifles, Splitfire, White Rifles, LLC. White Muzzleloading Systems had a "W" inside an oval and made a G-Series Whitetail, the later ones (White Shooting Systems, White Rifles) had a "W" with crosshairs going through it. What does it actually say on the barrel?
No matter what you did good, and if you care to double your money, give me a PM or e-mail. If not give me a PM or e-mail, and I will tell you where to go to make about 150 DWB's (Dirty White Boys) sick and learn more about your rifle at he same time.
Another thing you might want to know, the .451's have a 1-20 twist and like long heavy bullets (460 grain + full bore conicals) the best. Just don't expect it to shoot those little bitty pistol bullets out of a sabot as good. If you want a sabot shooter, take me up on my offer and you can go buy one.
The sad reality is, there is no Company left to honor the warranty, or to supply parts if needed.
That's because outside of a few diehards no one wants a White. Since yours is a .451 you'd be better off selling it NIB. There's enough guys that want a White .451, and the synthetic stock is a big plus, that I can see you tripling or quadrupling what you have in it. Then you can put that to something that you want.zara_puppy said:And I will consider your offer. I wasn't really looking for anything special - more along the lines of a T/C Omega or such. They just went too high at the auction. Go figure!
Nope. I agree 100%. Look at this pathetic group out of my Omega. Poor groups like this is why I haven't hunted with it in almost 3 years. Must be why no one wants to buy this gun either. Oddly enough my Knight will shoot similar groups with the right load. Poor pathetic guns. Ain't worth a hill of beans.Batchief909 said:I've since owned 2 Knights and 3 Omegas,,,,and have gotten rid of them. The accuracy comparisons don't even exist.
I didn't realize this was a "concern" of yours,,,,,,,or you were the "Guardian Angel" of White Rifle sales......but we DWBs appreciate your concern. : Next time Randy wants to give a gun away,,,I'll call him. 8)I originally posted on this topic to keep you guys from cheating the original poster. We both know how bad you DWB's want .451 Whites.
I didn't say steal I said cheat. Someone offered him horrid deals up above. Twice what he paid for it? When you and I both know it's worth 3 or 4 times what he paid? A rifle swap and $20 to boot? Those are horrid deals and I consider them trying to cheat the guy.Batchief909 said:I didn't see anyone trying to steal the gun from him. ??? Let it GO!!
