This is a really stupid question but it is driving me nuts.

On the Milt Sparks website, the entry for the Versa Max-2 has a picture with 2 holsters on it. One is black, what color is the other one? I placed an order today for one in natural, but after I did that I realized I might have ordered the wrong color (story of my life).

I know this is a silly thing, but I am so excited about this holster I want it to be perfect and am hoping if I selected the wrong color that I can figure it out and get it corrected quickly!

-Thanks in advance,
-Andy

I would guess CORDOVAN, it is a very drk reddish brown that almost looks black.

Since you've brought it up, what was the expected date of delivery for you on this holster (as I'm also considering buying one)? I know this: you won't be disappointed. I own a couple of Sparks holsters and none disappointed, both were worth the wait. geegee

IIRC, the VMII pic shows a 1911 in a natural/tan holster and another gun (P7M8??) in a black one? I believe they're available in cordovan as well. BTW, I'm waiting on an order I placed 5/31 for a Watch Six (complete rig w/ belt and mag pouches). Lead time quoted was 8 to 10 weeks, I understand your excitement

Gentlemen, if you're looking for the Versa Max 2, Allan Yoast in Texas have a few already in stock. Drop him a line. I got my horsehide VM2 from Allan in a week !

Heh heh, so far one person says natural and one says cordovan. I didn't know what cordovan was so I dunno. All I know is what I actually want is the same color as the non-black one in the pic. Call me picky.

They told me a 6-10 week wait. I am also doing the VM-2/belt/dual IWB mag holder deal for my Kimber Pro-Carry. I am most excited, but want to make sure I get the color right before I confirm the order.

Like I said, silly, but the little things count!

If you go back to the website, take a look at the Watch Six pic. If you look closely at the two holsters pictured, you'll notice the 1911 is in a dark brown holster (that's cordovan), and the Glock is in a black one. If you read through the description there's a closeup of the loop system using a cordovan holster. It's definitely darker than the "Natural/tan" shown in the VM-II pic.

I think you ordered the right one based on what you've said. Myself, I cut the confusion and bought black
