Milt Sparks Roadrunner...

I always loved the Milt Sparks Roadrunner holster (old style 60TK). Just for the heck of it, I called Milt Sparks this morning and asked if they would still make them. The guy on the phone at first said no they did not. We talked a minute and he said "hang on let me ask to make sure", He came back to the phone and to my surprise said, " sure we will make you one , have not made one in a while, but we will make it for you". I have two of them on the way, one for a Gov't model and one for a Commander. Now for the long wait, LOL...

I post this because I have saw several people mention this holster on this and other forums over a period of time. So if you are one of the folks that liked this model from Milt Sparks, they will still make them if you give them a call. Shout out to the guys at Milt Sparks for great customer service.

Very nice, they are a company that truly values their customers. Seems like I’m always waiting on a Sparks order to come through. I don’t mind waiting as I know what a great product is coming.

I know the feeling; I just received my third holster since the Idaho 50th Anniversary trip last month, and still am waiting on a D4C in black elephant! They CAN be addictive.

You are lucky, as Sparks will not build one of their holsters unless they have the mold for it.

Here is one for the Commander w/ a Wilson CQB Compact:



And a full-size w/ a Nighthawk GRP:

Yep, I pretty much figured they would not make one if the pattern was not still available, just rolled the dice. Pretty popular holster in years past, so I had a feeling it was laying around somewhere.

That is the first holster I ever designed for Sparks. Nice to hear they'll revive the old pattern on request.

Never been able to see or handle one of those in person but would really like to.

Yep, I knew it was Tony, great design. Always liked it, I was excited to be able to get a couple new ones made.

I am fortunate to have a very early one for the BHP. A high-ride that conceals great!

And here is a clone, made by Ross Leather (South Africa). This one has a slight cant rather than the Roadrunner's severe cant.

I don't think any of Milt Sparks OWB holsters have a sweat shield. They are only found on some of their IWB holsters.
