Disappointed...no Sparks holster for this gun
I am going to purchase a SIG RCS (alloy Officer's frame / Commander top end / totally dehorned) to become my primary carry gun. I just got off the phone with Graham at Milt Sparks and was disappointed to learn they do not have the form for the RCS, thus do not make a holster that fits. SIG has to make their 1911's resemble a SIG and to that end the lower part of the slide is "stepped", which precludes a normal Commander holster from fitting. I know that SIG 1911's aren't the most popular ones out there, but there is nothing else that fills the bill. Any 4.25" 1911 out there is either built on a full size frame or a steel one. Any Officer's size frame comes only as a 3" (which I definitely DO NOT want), plus the SIG takes down like a normal 1911 - none of that unecessary full-length guide rod crap, or bull barrel - a 1911 the way John Browning designed it (with the exception of the external extractor and firing pin safety). One mold/form would accommodate three different SIG models - The Compact 1911 - which is as described but with a steel frame and no dehorning; The C3, which is the RCS without the dehorning and the, desired, RCS. Don't know what I expect of this post - just venting I guess. To me there are NO substitutes for a Spark's VMII (I have three now), but I really don't want to entrust a new gun to the vagaries of UPS or FedEx, plus pay the exorbitant freight and insurance to send Sparks the actual gun. Quandry - thanks for listening.
