    Hi Jason,
    Well, the primary difference is that you can no longer get a VI - they have been discontinued.
    The front and back panels on the VI were made from two very thin layers of leather, with a steel insert sandwiched between them. This made the holster mouth more rigid for one-handed reholstering. (It also made the holster cost $150 a pop)
    The Max-Con V is made with a single ply of leather front and back. It is thinner and lighter than the VI, and is a really great all around defensive IWB.
    FWIW, I own a holster shop (and can therefore have any holster that I want), and the rig you ordered is virtually identical to my own.(Except my holsters are all Presentation Grade seconds that I somehow managed to screw-up). The gear that you ordered will, I believe, serve you quite well.
    Thanks again, BTW!
