Is this the glorious sentinel. I do not own one but might pick it up for its insane performance.

Yes sadly this is the sentinel, it's a true shame to see some idiots at hasbro found a way to basically make a monopoly. My personal reccomendtion would be not to buy it at this price, sadly I don't think it's worth that much. You should if you are going to mod it but as for just leaving it stock your time to buy it was months ago when hasbro wasn't a pain in the ass

Edit:I know I sound depressed but it is true that unless you want to mod it for this price you should get something that's more functional all around or if you have the money because the sentinel is power based, something like a EAT for this price would better serve you in any situation where you need more speed

This is basically a Sentinel in a different shell, with a better priming method and a significantly more comfortable handle. It's easier to turn it into a pump-action blaster as well. Someone brought one to the last NIB SoCal war and it had great performance right out of the box.

Huh, who would have known, I have both and quite frankly I think the sentinel is better but that's just me. Do you know if you can rotate the priming handle to the other side and has anyone done that? I use my left hand to prime and its bothersome to prime sideways so I would use this at endwar over my k26ed sentinel if I could find a way to do that.

A slot would need to be cut in the left side but the handle should be able to rotate around with no problem.  I'll post about it when we've done it to Agent Washington's Ultra Tek Spine.

Would the Air Warriors Predator have the same performance?

This is a mockup of the internals. It has a arm connecting to the plunger rod (orange) that will break with spring upgrade. The red is the plunger tube, which is smaller than the sentinel's, but the main determinant to the performance is the hose connecting the pt to the barrel (green).
Also I'm don't think I'm going to go with the (wow the snipė auto-correct feature is awesome) snipė because I liked the sentinel because of the lever action.
