Sentinel Upgrades

Im really interested in buying a Sentinel TS and I was wondering, since it looks like the Diadem uses the same body, will it be possible to make a sentinel electropneumatic? Is there any possibility of you making something like an electropneumatic conversion kit?
Thanks

Sorry but I doubt it. Although it looks the same the internal machining is different. the main being the lower tube doesn't have the sear slot and is sealed for approx. last 1.5" as it part of the gas supply to the solenoid. The grip frame also is different in a few ways.
You would or we would have to supply a new body , grip frame , battery box , Vert. reg. , LP reg. , bolt , diadem mid-rise feed neck , and asst'd fasteners. By time we retro-fitted a TS to a diadem piece by piece it'd be more than buying new.
we are working on a holiday special Sentinel TS w/ some great aftermarket parts. Stay tuned in this forum for an announcement next week.

to be completely honest



the sentinel ts really needs nothing except maybe a trigger job<my opinion>

a freak kit or a J&J edge wouldn't hurt it but not entirely necessary

i have never been happy with a stock out of the box marker until i got my TS..well my phantom was close =) but not perfect

but i would like to take a look at the hot rod version crash is talkin about

My personal gun is 3/16 or about 4mm after some trigger work. As far as stock goes I think it's around 6mm, but Crash would know for sure.

Thumbs up

Thats not bad at all. A mechanical blow-back pull can only get so short.

Benson's correct the stock one come out about 6-7mm on pull length. They are a bit stiffer then we would like but to get the reliability that we want that's the result . You can get it lighter but sometimes you'll have issues w/ recocking w/ small bore paint or a dirty marker. Also once your used to it and get your finger adapted to laying along the length of the blade you can really rip on it.

whinny little red headed st........ Er - was that out loud?
ANYWAYS, Not yet AFAIK , you're the first I've had ask for a standard 2x trigger. If you ask real nicely I could make one for you .
I think I have an old benchie 2x cocker shoe I could cut and TIG onto a AM trigger
