Here is one I made.
Here are my Sparks VMII's. The black one is for my Government model and the tan is for my Glock 27. I have another black one ordered for my Kimber PRO CDP II. It should arrive next month. I love these holsters! I'm going to order an Axiom on the first and see if it beats my current favorite OWB, the Mitch Rosen Premier.
Are you going to apply color? It looks great the way it is - Natural look.
Made of Horsehide? The stiching job on your holster is PERFECT! It looks like you've been doing this for a while now. Am I right?
Great Job! Let me know if you need someone to field test your prototypes
Everytime I see the VMII for Glock subcompacts, I wonder why they don't apply the "extra leather" on their 1911 3" ?
The extra leather works great especially for short barreled pistols.
BTW, I have both Mitch Rosen Premier and Sparks Axiom. The Axiom pulls the pistol "tighter" against the body. You won't be dissapointed. :rock:
I hope we are not opening up a can of worms here but I've been wanting to start a new thread regarding the importance of having the "extra leather" or "leather flap" on short barreled pistol holsters.I was thinking about the extra leather on my VMII for Glock and started looking around, every other one I see for the baby glocks don't have the extra leather on the bottom like mine. I wonder what the deal is??
Gotta give Kydex some love......
After riding in a Kramer for the past few months, my LB Monolith Commanche has a new holster. As always, great fit, finish and customer service from the guys at Milt Sparks.
I did not apply color...I like natural as well because no 2 are alike. It is veg-tan cowhide 8oz leather. I started making holsters in February and I am now making a few each month. I am getting much better at stitching. I appreciate the kind words and I wish I could hand out many prototypes but the $$$ doesn't allow it. I have a small photo album with a few pics of the last few I have made. Thanks again for the props.
How did you get that so quick? I can't get the regular Mason-Dixon I ordered last December for my compact 1911 and he has just recently introduced his hybrid line. Do you maybe have an inside contact? He won't answer calls or return emails and I want my holster I have already paid for!Bluegrass Holsters Mason Dixon Hybrid For a Springfield XDM. I will say its the mostcomfortable holster Ive had to date.
