This Wilson Combat Sentinel Compact chambers the well-balanced .38 Super and has received many upgrades such as the VFI Signature “Black Edition” upgrade, which includes all black parts, Black Wilson Combat Grip Medallions, Armor Tuff Finish, and an engraving of “Black Edition” on the left side of the slide under the model name. Additionally, this Sentinel Compact has been upgraded with a Round-Butt Magazine Well, Lightweight Frame, Narrow Ambidextrous Thumb Safety, Orange Outline Tritium Front Sight with Rear Tritium Battlesight, and an extreme De-Horn for Carry to enhance your carry experience and ensure high performance to all shooters looking for a great lightweight carry pistol or range gun with match-grade accuracy.


From Wilson Combat – The Sentinel Compact merges our shortest slide fighting pistol, the Sentinel, with the frame of our compact 1911 series handguns. The result is a pistol designed for accurate shooting and easy concealment. The sub-compact 3.6″ Sentinel slide quickly clears your carry holster on the draw, but still retains the match-grade accuracy that is the hallmark of the Wilson Combat line of custom 1911’s. With numerous custom features designed to enhance shooting performance and cosmetics, the Sentinel Compact is the ideal all-around size for many shooters seeking a concealed carry 1911.


This Sentinel Compact is one of our VFI Signature Series guns, and we have multiple in stock.
