    Thumbs up 20-26 weeks and counting!

    I just ordered another Sparks VMII for my new G23. The last one I got took 23 weeks exactly, so I know what to expect. The Milt Sparks VMII is WELL worth the short wait. My b-day is in May, so this should work fine.

    You know what they say? Good things come to those that wait.

    Yes, they do!
    After seeing and wearing Sparks quality first-hand, the minimal wait time will not be an issue.

    Might have tried lighting arms first to check and see if they have the popular G23 and save a 6 month wait. It's a bit more money but it's worth it to not have to wait at least for me. It's worth a shot. http://www.lasports.biz/products.htm

    Milt Sparks seem's to know their business quite well, they are almost to the tee with their estimated delivery times. I have yet to hear of excuses or 12-24 month waits from them when quoting 4-6 months when you order.

    I did, and they had nothing for a G23. I wanted the shark trim anyway, and I doubt they carry that at all.

    Ah, bummer. The shark trim is a sweet touch, it will be worth the wait as you already know.

    I'm selling mine which is BRAND new for G23/19. It is cowhide, tan, 1.5 inch loops and comes with the kydex clips. The holster is also LEFT HANDED!!! PM me if someone wants it.

    Yup, I've been on my 3rd wait list for a few months now... always worth the wait too!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Kevin - I wish you had not posted that picture. It just makes the wait for mine worse.

    What a beautiful piece of craftsmanship.
