Still hoping they come out with one for the Glock 43.

It seems to be the way I'm leaning.
Most of my guns see some time in the carry rotation, I'm really looking forward to carrying a 1911. I just received a Del Fatti SLP, so I have an OWB option already, for range and heavier cover garment use. Nice piece. But I've typically always carried IWB, and an offset loop model is what I'm used too. I might try a summer special or executive companion also, a stacked loop design might be "thicker" but I'm coming from double stack land so that probably won't bother me.
I havery pretty much decided I want a Sparks, because it's a maker I haven't tried yet. Of course his reputation proceeds him.

I'm considering one for a Colt Government and am deciding between the two. 1911 is a new weapon to me. This model doesn't have carry treatment/bevels, if that's noteworthy.
I'm thin/athletic build and carry my current IWB rig (a Brommeland Max-Con V H&K USP-c) pretty far back, around 4-5:00.
My Criterion is only a year old. My Versa Max 2 is around 12 years old and still going strong. I'm sure I'll get two to three decades out of all my Criterions.

Heavy guns and holsters with loops that are together do not go well together. My Heritage for my 1911 tilts back and causes the butt of the gun to print at the kidney. I recommend sticking to the Versa Max 2 (18-20 degree forward cant) or the Criterion (25 degree cant).

Got mine with shark skin last week. I also have a VM2 and I like the Criterion more. But you can't go wrong with either.

I think I decided on a Criterion for my Springfield TRP Operator for IWB carry. Will it work with the TRP rail?

We've made it for both the standard rail and full rail Springfield 1911. Thanks.
