    VMII would be the choice between those two. I sometimes have trouble chosing between my MTAC and my VMII for the G23 though. The MTAC is as comfortable as the VMII, and also lets me carry my G22 or G27 with the same holster.

    Well, if cost and wait time are not factors, why not go with both? More options is a good thing.

    I guess I should clarify. Cost is not an issue as for the delta between the two holsters. I'd prefer to not buy both at once. I might add another down the line, but for now, if you were going to order just 1, would it be the Crossbreed, the V-Max II (or the MTAC)?

    Well, I own a Crossbreed Supertuck, and I'm very happy with it. I haven't owned the others, so my 'vote' is understandably biased to the Crossbreed. Very simple design, which I like, and fairly easy to customize for my freakish form, which would be a bit more difficult to do with an all-leather holster.

    I'm in the same BOAT. Since, I have the tuckable clips for the VM-II I'm using the MTAC less and less.

    Its just so hard to beat the VM-II

    There is a reason the waiting line for VM2's is so long! By far the best IWB I've ever worn. I now own three for different sized 1911's.

    I am doing this as well. Both have regular carry duty for me depending on the situation. The Crossbreed is as comfortable as the Sparks for me, but the Crossbreed is more of a utilitarian/work holster. The Sparks is more my out and about holster. More "formal" maybe? Kinda like the difference between what is a B.D.U./duty appropriate holster and a Class A/dress appriate holster, that both fit their given niches perfectly. I wouldn't give up either on! My opinion would be to get the Crossbreed now, and order a VMII for the future. After all it's gonna be six months before you get it anyway. Put away $20 bucks a month and by the time the Sparks needs to be payed for you'll have enough saved up. Can't go wrong really because if you dislike one of the two, enough people on this forum and others would buy either one off your hands for what you paid and with the Sparks maybe a bit more than you paid.

    I have a VM-II for all my CCWs because to me it's the best money can buy! Worth every penny and worth a very long wait too!

    Get a good OWB holster to hold you over.
