The rebirth of the .45 Sentinel?




Saw this on gunbroker, and it appears to have been made within the last year? WCT serial number, dog tag on the bag, and new testfire recepie. Then again here are several mistakes, such as the accuracy claim of 1" at 25 yards.

WCR, are they available on a special order basis?

Old logo grips? Not hard for someone to pose an old gun next to a new bag and dog tag to make it look newer. I am skeptical.

Understood but as Highgear stated, the WCT serial number suggests it's a newer production gun. You can't fake the serial number . . . well you can but it's highly unlikely someone would go to the trouble to photoshop a newer serial number on an older gun. It's possible that it could have been one of the last ones produced.

I've asked for the build date. I assume it was probably a special order. My sentinel .45 was built during the couple of years between the two generations when they didn't officially offer it.

Thanks, Dean

Not your typical test target accuracy.....all mine have one big 5 round hole. And he wants retail pricing for it.......it get the fact they aren't made anymore.....but I'd keep looking if I was in the market for one.

Mine was made solely by Jim Wilson, and shot a ragged hole. $1,700.

I'm happy for him if he finds a buyer at that price.

"Less than 800 rounds"???
Is it even possible to have a Wilson with that low of a round count?

I mean I know some owners have only had their guns for a few days, and some guns are destine to a life in the safe (a moment of silence for the lost Wilsons please...), but my TE was screaming FEED ME from the second I picked it up at the LGS!!
