The following is a press release from Wilson Combat

All seasoned concealed carriers know one simple fact-the grip of any handgun is always the most difficult part to conceal.

Wilson Combat has combined our 4″ Compact top end with our exclusive Sentinel sub-compact frame to create a unique everyday carry custom handgun– the Sentinel XL. The Sentinel XL has the smallest 1911 grip available, with the enhanced practical accuracy and reliability a Compact slide offers.

The reduced-height Sentinel frame is ½” shorter than our standard Compact, and when mated with the ultra slim G-10 grips is well suited to shooters who prefer a smaller handgun. The concealment grip safety/hammer and round butt mainspring housing selected for the Sentinel XL gives you a real advantage when it comes to daily carry and shooting comfort.

Even though the Sentinel XL is designed for concealment, the precisely-fitted slide, frame and 4″ match grade barrel will give you the downrange performance you expect from a Wilson Combat custom pistol. A host of practical and cosmetic touches will make this one of your favorite carry guns.

The 4″ Compact slide allows the Sentinel XL to be offered in 9mm, .38 Super and .45 ACP calibers for a ballistic advantage over many subcompact handguns.
