A while ago I purchased a Springfield Armory Hell Cat OSP with a Swampfox Sentinel optic already installed from a fellow in the forum, I purchased it for my Son. It was the Red Dot Version I was very surprised at the accuracy of the optic out to 25 Meters it was dead on my Son has run 500 or so rounds thru his Hell Cat without any problems the SENTINEL held the Zero. I was so impressed with the Sentinel optic I purchased one for My Springfield Armory Hell Cat OSP but with a Green Dot. Why Green you ask? The number one reason to use a Green Dot is daytime visibility. You will have a much easier time seeing a Green Dot in broad daylight than Red Dot. Green is close to the center of the visible light spectrum at about 532 Nanometers. Red is higher on the spectrum at 635 Nanometers. It is easy to see and acquire a co-witness sight picture with Green over Red. But whichever color you choose I strongly recommend the Swamp Fox Sentinel for the Springfield Armory Hell Cat OSP!
The next-generation ultra-compact micro reflex dot sight is optimized for everyday carry-on slimline pistol slides. No plastic body or polymer lens for us only hard coated 7075 aluminum and multi-coated glass here. Sentinel offers very real advantages in defensive shooting situations.
If EDC is your lifestyle and you are looking for every edge you can get, step up your pistol’s sighting system with the state-of-the-freakin’-art Swampfox Sentinel.

You’ve done the work. You’ve taken the classes and run the drills. You don’t just shoot on the regular, you train hard when you do. You are the one they ask for help with figuring out the shot timer. Dry fire is your Zen meditation time, and everyday carry is part of your lifestyle.
You are ready to step up your carry gun’s sighting system to the latest technology available. Swampfox Sentinel is ready for you.

Slide-mounted dot sights are taking the EDC and competition worlds by storm and for good reason. The advantages of the target-focused sighting, quicker sight tracking for faster follow-up shots, and increased accuracy all apply just as much to concealed carry as they do to duty or competition use. It’s a real performance boost, day or night.
Two Sentinel models stand ready to meet the challenges of everyday carry. Sentinel-M is the manual press button version, and Sentinel-A features fully automatic brightness adjustment. Take your pick between red or green illumination.

Sentinel-M features ten manually adjusted brightness settings accessed via digital push buttons. Shake ‘N Wake motion-sensing illumination preserves battery life when Sentinel-M has been motionless for about 4 minutes. As soon as motion resumes, Sentinel-M resumes its previous brightness level. Manually shut off Sentinel-M by pressing the brightness DOWN button for 3 seconds.
Sentinel-A truly never sleeps. A photosensitive sensor on the left side of the scope body provides a bright dot relative to ambient light in all conditions, day or night. There are no manual controls at all, no Shake ‘N Wake– no way for Sentinel-A to be accidentally shut off, ever. Install the CR2032 battery underneath Sentinel-A and you’re good to go for two years straight– there’s nothing to fiddle with.
Like Liberty and Justice, Sentinel uses a high-efficiency emitter projecting a 3 MOA red or green dot. Sentinel’s highest setting is brighter than any other current Swampfox red dot.
There is no room for a robust and strong tray system with such a small footprint, so replacing Sentinel’s battery means removing the optic and potentially re-zeroing.
The good news is, deleting the tray system creates space to use a larger CR2032 battery, effectively doubling battery life. Whether you choose Sentinel-M or Sentinel-A, expect two years of real-world battery life, even carrying your pistol all day every day.

Other companies are producing slimline pistol dots with plastic bodies and clear polymer lenses.
No thanks. That’s not our style.
Sentinel is crafted from CNC machined 7075-T6 aluminum, hard-coated in matte black, and features a multicoated glass of the same excellent quality used in our long-range precision rifle scopes.

Sentinel is really small. About an inch tall, an inch wide, and 1.6 inches long. Shoehorned into this tiny scope is a 16mm x 16mm window, big enough for fast acquisition and sight tracking, small enough that it doesn’t affect concealability even a little.
Sentinel will fit Glock 43X and Glock 48 MOS, Sig P365XL, Springfield Hellcat OSP, Canik Elite SC, S&W Shield 2.0 Optics Ready, Walther PPS M2 Optics Ready-- any slimline slide with an RMSc footprint incorporated, either factory or gunsmith cut.

A concealed carry optic must be ultra-dependable because you are literally betting your life that it will be ready when called upon. Some pistols, like the P365XL shown opposite, have no way to co-witness iron sights once a dot is installed. If your dot goes down there are no other sights.
Sentinel is “dunk it” waterproof when installed using the included flexible seal that fits between the optic and footprint. It is shock rated to an incredible 1500 G.
Fortune favors the prepared, right? So get out there and train hard. As the round count climbs, as you earn the holster wear on that pistol, as you replace recoil springs and mag springs, and yes batteries too, Sentinel won’t give up, and neither will we.
If shit happens and your Sentinel does stop performing within 50,000 rounds of live fire, Swampfox will repair or replace it promptly. That’s our code. That’s our word.
