The Milt Sparks Versa-Max 2 is one of the most duplicated IWB holster designs, so you gotta wonder why everyone wants to get a piece of the design pie! The Versa-Max 2, or VM-2 for short, is designed around keeping your gear as close to the wearer as possible, while still offering fast access with a full grip. The VM-2 features a similar rake angle and reinforced mouth-band and sweat guard as the famous Summer Special, but sets itself apart by completely changing some key aspects.

The belt loops are relocated outboard of the main holster body which allows the overall profile to be very slim and fit as close to the wearer as possible. The forward loop's base has been slotted to add more flexibility when wrapping around your side, for more comfort and better concealability. Designed to be worn slightly behind the point of the hip, this wider setup also adds stability, making sure the VM-2 will not twist or rotate as you move. Don't worry though, the close proximity to your skin is no problem thanks to the oversized sweat-guard. This extension of the mouth band works double time to keep your sweat from contacting your gun, and keeps the hard angles and uncomfortable components of your gun from pressing into your soft squishy bits. The medium ride height is designed to give you a very concealable profile, while at the same time offering a full grip to grab onto when drawing. As is the steel-reinforced cowhide mouth band that makes sure that the VM-2 stays open and ready, even when empty and being pressed in by your belt and pants. The molded sight track gives clearance for your front sight, so there are no snags when drawing or re-holstering. The overall design makes the VM-2 well suited for pretty much any practical carry pistol, and is a comfortable and easy-to-conceal holster option. You can even replace the leather snap loops with kydex clips to make the VM-2 easily tuckable from the top down (kydex clip snot included).

These VM-2's feature smooth-out construction and one-way snaps. The body-side of the holster is sturdy horsehide, with a cowhide mouth-band and sweat guard. Configured for right-handed shooters (holster on the right side, mag carriers on the left side).

Note: these holsters are not optics-ready unless denoted on the model selection with "Optics Ready". Optics compatibility depends on the exact optic you are using, so be aware that some will not fit.

Notes on Leather:

Cowhide leather (and other hides) is a truly wonderful material. It has been used since the dawn of man to protect and aid us apes, and it's still the go-to material for premium gear for the same very good reasons. It is strong, comfortable, and beautiful. It smells good and feels good. Knife sheaths, EDC gear, holsters, boots - you name it - it looks and feels amazing in leather. "Leather sounds amazing, what's the catch" you might ask? Well, the "catch" is only a "catch' if you have the wrong attitude towards leather. See, the aspects that make leather oh-so-wonderful, are also the aspects that make it unique - literally. Specifically, leather WILL change and develop its own character over time. As you use it and it breaks in, the colors will patina, it will get softer and more comfortable, and it will tell its own story after days and years of daily use. It also will scratch if you scratch it, wrinkle if you bend it, and generally change colors and shades if you touch it. Each and every hide used will have its own unique character representative of its origins.

This is a GOOD thing - but we have to address the elephant in the room: if you are not someone that likes how a material ages and changes, leather might not be for you. There are plenty of amazing modern materials that change very little with use, and if you are someone that likes a clinically clean aesthetic and wants your gear to stay that way over time, those are likely better alternatives suited to your tastes versus the leather option. Additionally, when someone wants a nice piece of leather, they want to get that new leather goodness that has not yet been worked over by some other chimp. That being the case, we have special rules regarding ordering, handling, and if it comes up, returning leather goods. So if you are thinkin' about buying some leather gear, you should REALLY read our Leather Guidelines and Return Policy so you don't monkey something up and find out you can't return it.
