Sentinel thoughts?
 
So i have a few of these markers and parts and wanted to ask for the histrory sakes of it. I have 16 markers that were used for a rental fleet of 50 at one time. each of the markers is engraved with the store that orderd them. also have a few parts for them. Now the question is should i sell them off should i keep them? Should i sell off as a lot? Should i sell them one by one? Should i keep them as a whole to display to the public?

SN that i have are as follows:
001206, 001038, 001001, 001180, 002019, 001005, 001174, 001017, 001030, 001165, 001197, 001213, 001048.

I also have two that seem to be un-marked and from what I have read from other post that means a early production or late production? Here are the two that are unmarked:

I also have some parts for these markers such as:
Drop Forwards:

"O" Rings, Hammers, Bolts, Screws, Valve pins, Cocking Knobs, Feed Necks, springs, ect..

Now i wanted to ask to see if there were any ideas or comments on what i should do with this collection of bits. I was noticing that there was 2 different styles of bodys in my small collection also. Any thoughts, ideas, comments, values, ect. would be great!

I have or can get more pictures of anything if wanted.

Thanks for the help!

Did you just collect these or was some field using them as rentals?

I believe the more squar style body was the original production, and the newer style was slightly more busy.

I worked for the field / store that orderd these new. (50) and they used them untill parts became hard to find then they were placed in storage till 2008 when the store closed then they were sold off. I bought what was left. The twp styles that i have are as follows:

They're first and second generation guns- if you have blowback issues, shave 1/8" off your valve pins. It was a common problem with the earliest models.

Their value is relatively low anymore, but they're very well made. The sears and hammers did tend to wear out, though, so spares of those parts could be valuable. I think they're a bit too cheap to be real collector's guns, unfortunately. I paid around $100 for each of mine, and both are later models in excellent condition with all the bells and whistles. The single trigger frame might be a draw if you sell those- maybe as a lot, or at $40 each, if they're working well.

I'd love to buy a drop and a valve should you be willing to part with them. Maybe even a whole gun and a few spares.

i know this is a really old thread....but i thought i'd give it a shot...i need some springs for my sentinel... are you selling some?

splattttttt 04-03-2012 08:58 PM

do you have a complete gun with no leaks you're willing to let go for $50.?

Jebs04 04-04-2012 09:58 PM

I would be willing to part with a marker, and I also have a more springs than I will most likely use. HOWEVER, my land lord were i had my museum displayed at, forced me to close, so all of my stuff is packed into a storage locker till i find a new home to display it.. If you would like i can let you know when i find it.

splattttttt 04-04-2012 10:40 PM

As long as it doesn't leak, sure. Thanks!
