Sorry, on my phone and can’t figure out how to edit a post, so I will just post one more.
The next generation ultra-compact micro red dot sight optimized for every day carry on slimline pistol slides. No plastic body or polymer lens for us, only hard coated 7075 aluminum and multicoated 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.
AT A GLANCE
IN THE BOX
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 every day 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.
REAL WORLD, REAL ADVANTAGE
Slide mounted red dot sights are taking the law enforcement and competition worlds by storm, and for good reason. The advantages of 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.
MANUAL VS. AUTOMATIC, THE CHOICE IS YOURS
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.
BRIGHTER DOT, LONGER BATTERY LIFE
Like Liberty and Justice, Sentinel uses a high efficiency emitter projecting a 3 MOA red 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 everyday.
A FUSION OF METAL AND GLASS
DUTY GRADE? DAMN RIGHT
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 multicoated glass of the same excellent quality used in our long-range precision rifle scopes.
BUT WHAT DOES IT FIT?
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 fix the 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.
BET YOUR *** DEPENDABLE
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.
GO FORTH AND SHOOT 50,000 ROUNDS
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 **** 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.

Hmmmm... from what I've read, they use Chinese manufacturing so basically a Holosun competitor.
Holosun has the proven track record but there aren't many bad reviews on Swampfox optics.
Tough call because I was playing around, and with a coupon, I was able to get the cost down to $209.

Just got notice from Proven Outfitters that they are (Finally) sending my Romeo 0. I will do a side by side comparison. The sentinel does not have a backup rear sight on it, so it will go on my P365 that has the slot milled in front of the rear sight. The Romeo Zero will go on my XL.

I've got the 6moa Romeo Zero on my XL, and still waiting on the Holosun 407K for my milled short slide, ordered early Feb. Worst case, the milling by Fabricated Arms should fit any of the micro dots! So please let us know how you like the Sentinel.

Holosun has the shake awake and auto brightness on same unit. Swampfox its either or, not both. Truly just pick up and shoot, nothing else to do. I have thousands of rounds using holosuns on various platforms. Never an issue of any sort and they are solar and battery as well. Paid 309.00 for 507C at LGS for last one. My 2 cents

It was in my mail last night, but I got home LATE. First impressions are that it is Physically solid. It appears well made, durable (time will tell), no visible manufacturing marks, flaws, etc.
It is much too tall to co witness with the standard sights I have on my P365, so although the optic mount was milled in front of the rear sight, unless I switch to some really tall suppressor sights that doesn’t matter.
I got the always on version. The dot is crisp and seems to be an appropriate brightness, but I only got a few minutes with it.
It came with lots of “stuff” including multiple screw sets of different lengths and sizes.

ETA: Crow eating time. I did all these posts on very little time for observation. I am not altering them, but will explain. Upon close inspection, the sight cut I had done on the P365 is more shallow than the factory cut on the P365xl. That explains why the Romeo looked smaller.
Here are some comparison photos. The Sentinel is bigger than the Romeo0. The Romeo also sits lower than the Sentinal. Total viewable windows seem about the same volume, but the shapes are different, so it is not an exact comparison. Romeo is a squared off bottom with a rounded arch top. Sentinel is gently rounded bottom and sides and more of a “stop sign” top.https://www.ar15.com/member/photos.html?aid=5327
