    Mcdaniel II or M.S. summer special II?

    Gun being carried is a S&W lightweight gunsite commander. Would you say they are equelly stable as each other despite the mcdaniel II having only one loop vs. the SS II's two loops? so which of these would you pick and why for ccw?

    Well I can't comment on the SS but I have two McDaniel II's and I'm very happy with them. I carry a LW Commander in one and a SA Micro in the other. Both are stable, comfortable holsters. I especially like the adjustable rake, really helps fine tune the comfort.

    ELCruisr pretty much hit the nail on the head. I carry a 5" govenment in a McDaniel II and I love it very comfortable and the adjustable rake does help for me, and Andrews customer service is excellent. Go with the McDaniel II you won't regret it.

    The SSII is a great holster but the McDaniel is a much better design. The SS's two loops are too close together to serve any real purpose and they are right over the top of the holster which makes for a more bulky holster. The McDaniel places the loop behind the weapon which allows the holster to be thinner. It also pulls the butt of the gun in tight against the back to prevent printing. Like I said the SS is a good holster but IMO is outdated technology. The McDaniel is much closer in function to the Versa Max than the SS IMO.

    Due in part to this site, I purchased my first Macdaniels II.
    Ordering it by telephone took to long though. The gentleman is more than happy to pass the time with good conversation. They made up for it in delivery. Arrived 3 days later. Needs no break in, as the MS do. Ordered my second today.
    Sparks makes a good product, but Andrews one me over.
