Wilson Combat has combined its 4” Compact top end with its exclusive Sentinel sub-compact frame to create a unique everyday carry custom handgun—the Sentinel XL. Available in .45, 9 mm, and .38 Super calibers, the pistol boasts the smallest 1911 grip available while offering enhanced practical accuracy and reliability of a Wilson Compact slide. The Sentinel's reduced-height frame is ½” shorter than the Wilson standard Compact and, when mated with ultra slim G-10 grips, is well-suited for shooters who prefer a smaller handgun. A concealment grip safety/hammer and round butt mainspring housing also offer an advantage when it comes to daily carry and shooting comfort. The pistol is available in multiple color and finish combinations. MSRP: Starts at $3,800.
