G&P Sentry 10.5" Shorty M4 Airsoft AEG - Sand (Package: Gun Only)
by Todd M. Date Added: March 6, 2010
It was a great day when UPS dropped off this beauty on my doorstep just a couple weeks ago. Was very fortunate to get what I believe was probably the last one of only two Evike had in stock. This is my second G&P, the first being the Limited Defender. I will have to say, I believe this Sentry is now my favorite weapon. To get to the point, the Sentry is beautifully finished; as you would expect from G&P. They are well known for their external finishes and it is a reputation well-deserved. This desert sand toned unit is just terrific. The finish is so flat, smooth and clean. And it is nice that the plastic Tango Down style grip and the upper and lower receivers are nicely color matched. The gun is very stiff, solid and has no rattles - even regarding the Vltor stock, which is unusual, but indeed great. No, no wobbles whatsoever as far as construction. The Vltor brand trade markings look pretty legit as well. Somewhat surprisingly, my favorite little feature on this gun is the flash hider. The Vltor hider is so freaking cool. So well made and what a sweet design. The mech box on this gun is pretty nice too, identical to the G&P Defender I have, as best I can tell. The internals are quite solid, a lot of metal in there: 8mm ball bearings, steel gears, metal/bearing spring guide, low resistance fat silicon wiring, nice switch and trolly, selector, comes wired with Deans, etc. Spring, it seems, is on the mid weight, but the range on the gun is still great. It is hard to tell with the G&P M120 motor in there. That motor is simply sensational, a brute. Killer balance of power and speed. My favorite motor over anything Systema has, G&G or ICS. In battle the Sentry rocks, hard. I played one full Saturday skirmish with it two weeks ago and I owned the whole day long. The ROF is really nice with a 9.6v G&P 1600 MAh battery I ordered with it. That's about all that will fit in the tight Vltor stock. Mini type butterfly battery at that. I run the 10.8 crane style battery in the Defender I own, and that battery definitely will smoke some gears. I measured the ROF on the Defender and it came out at 30 rounds per second on the stock gearbox and spring. At that speed I eventually broke two of the G&P gears, but at that ROF, I really wasn't surprised. If you're going to shoot a hose like that you're going to have to pay to play. The Sentry is nearly the same gun, at a better price, with more trick externals. At the price of $350 the Sand Sentry is a steal, IMHO. Yeah, I'm a big G&P fan. If you have the ching then get one. Only thing I wish was that they had a O.D. Green version. I would buy that version too!
