[quote="flounder"]Good Luck![/quote] :lol: :lol:
I don't think White made a tbolt in 54 could be wrong tho.You forgot about the harder to find 410 tbolt :nono: :nono:
I have both 410 and 45 don't really want the 50 Tbolt{but you never know tho} as i have to many White's in 50 cal already and for alittle while i had two 45's Tbolt's but traded one for a 410 tbolt

My bad didn't see you post in classified :partyman:

I got one in .50. Mines a stainless that I black iced with a laminated stock .

I think just made in .41,.45 and .50 to my knowledge. They are very very scarce to say the least .

I assume the Thunderbolt was one of latest rifles Doc built ? I've tried to do some reading on Docs guns . I really love this gun . The design is very unique . Obviously you guys already know but it's between a bolt gun and a plunger gun . There was a lot of thought in building these Thunderbolts . I'm starting to see where the White owners obsession comes from !

I may part with a 50 that I have. It has never been shot and I just cant bring myself to shoot it. ( I have a few whites I have never shot yet ) I think maybe I should let someone else give it a try.

Finding one is like finding the Pot Of Gold at the end of the rainbow.
I have a T bolt, Mine is a .504 with the 209 ignition and I have the .32 ignition for it also. I have played with a little smokeless in mine also. It sets in the safe beside my thumbhole UMag.
I guess I found the Pot of Gold twice.

I don't think that was Doc White . No one got back with me . I'm gonna try to Email Mr White and see if he has any tucked away he would like to sell . I'm in no hurry there are a few out there . I've had a couple guys contact me thinking of selling a gun but no one has priced a rifle to me yet .

No the M98 was built before the Thunderbolt. Basically the Thunderbolt is the M98 with the notch cut out to accommodate the bolt.
