The Sentinel Rifle From Legendary Arms Works

The Sentinel

Earlier this year, Legendary Arms Works and American Built Arms (A*B Arms) partnered to produce The Sentinel rifle. The Sentinel is designed to be a precision shooting bolt action rifle and is available in both .308 Win and 6.5 Creedmoor. The rifle will be shown at the SHOT Show next month.

The Sentinel uses an M704 controlled round feed action that is in an A*B Arms CNC machined aluminum chassis system. Legendary Arms Works uses a 20″ stainless steel barrel that is triple lapped, air gauged, fluted and threaded (5/8×24.) More information on the M704 action can be found here.

According to A*B Arms, the company’s Urban Sniper Stock and KeyMod free float hand guard are used on The Sentinel. The stock is designed to be adjustable for both length of pull and comb height to help the shooter get the perfect fit. The total weight of the rifle is between 6.6 and 7.0 pounds unloaded.

Legendary Arms Works states these rifles come with a lifetime warranty and offer “unmatched accuracy.” Obviously, that is a bold claim to make and I’d love to hear feedback about how well it shoots from anyone that buys one of these. The suggested retail price for The Sentinel is $2,699. Legendary Arms Works is a veteran owned business based in Pennsylvania.

    Man, these companies are going to have to start pricing better if they want to compete with the Ruger Precision Rifle.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Oh but see… This is a different league, a custom CRF action and custom chassis, and bla bla bla… it’s puts a bullet right where you aim it…

      So you are right, the RPR does the exact same thing, cheaper and actually available from a company that will definitely support it 10 years in the future.

      The custom rifle ecosystem is ready for a collapse as a lot of mass produced rifles are being far more accurate than their owners.

      • Jack Morris

        Ruger crushed it with the RPR. Just over $1,000, modular, cool looking, widely available in multiple calibers, and most are shooting sub MOA. I just don’t get why these no-name companies keep trying to throw out these special snowflake rifles at such an inflated price.

          Savage 10ba stealth is the only thing I’ve seen that can really compete, they just need to advertise more

  • Twilight sparkle

    Okay… But why would you do a control round feed action on a precision rifle?

  • DGR

    Not really interested in the Sentinel, but why are none of the other models on this action mentioned? While I don’t see the point of this rifle, at this price point, the other offerings of this action look extremely promising. I don’t really want to buy a new hunting rifle, but they do have some great looking models. My problem is I already have my perfect hunting rifle, but the action they make sure looks nice.

    If Savage made the BA Stealth in .308 with a 24″ barrel I would already have one. I see a lot of “Precision” rifles in .308 Win with 20 ” barrels, I do not get it. Some say that 20″ is enough for .308 Win but I am just too old school and want at least a 24″ barrel.
