Milt Sparks Gear for S&W N-Frames Login/Join

For a couple of years now I’ve been on a “revolver renaissance” of sorts and, along the way, my affinity for gunleather has followed right along.

Shown is some recent leather from the folks at Idaho’s Milt Sparks: a PMK sized for a 3-1/2-inch Model 27, a 200AW Hank Sloan-style holster for a 5-inch 27, a pair of 6-4C speed-strip pouches (made in the same vein as their popular S-4C magazine pouch), and (just for kicks) a magazine pouch for a Colt-style 9mm AR magazine (styled after their #17 magazine pouch).

The PMK is concealment-oriented with its “Avenger” styling. The 200AW is more of a field rig but, with the right garment, can be concealed thanks to its comparatively high-ride.

I have IWB holsters from Barranti Leather for all of my N-Frames that offer exceptional concealment, but I’d felt a need for some good OWB leather, too, and Sparks really delivered.

Items from a couple of other folks are also sprinkled-in to some of the shots: a 6-Pack Triple Deuce 2x2x2 ammo pouch from Barranti, a fixed-blade knife from Kistner Knives, a gunbelt from Relentless Tactical, and a Skeeter Skelton hat also from Barranti.

As a side-note, you’ll notice the paw-print marks on the gunleather. The humans at Milt Sparks are overseen by faithful shop-dog, Badger, whose exploits are chronicled on his own social media page. On-request and at no extra charge, Badger will brand your gunleather with his seal of approval.

Great holsters and accessories! I love Milt Sparks leather and have carried my CCWs using his products (long after Milt passed away) since the 1970's. A few years ago, I had this 200AW made for my 4" barreled S&W Model 24-3, using "Distressed" leather. Kinda different and I like how it turned out.

Gorgeous stuff. Blue steel and leather! I have been trolling EBay for vintage Bianchi Hank Sloan holsters but have not found one I thought would fit My GP-100.

Very nice! I have a few Milt Sparks and the last ones were signed by Badger. One even had paw prints drawn on the inside box flap.

I’ve got a rather large order on it’s way from Milt Sparks in the next week. I’ve been using their holster for over 30 years. A couple of the holsters on the way are non-catalogued and I’m super excited to get my hands on them.

Ugh, the ANTICIPATION of the arrival of the Milt Sparks order is a real thing, isn’t it?! I was trying to calculate the weeks when I finally saw the charge come through on my card and knew I was only days away haha…

Please share when your box of gunleather goodness arrives!

I really like that Sparks is often willing to stretch a bit off the catalog and / or make stuff they used to catalog (such as the Roadrunner holster, or “old-style 60TK as they officially refer to it), my hands-down favorite OWB to-date:

Beautiful holsters in this thread. I'm also a big fan, and accidental collector, of Sparks and Barranti leather. Top of the food chain in that department.

Great holsters. I wish they didn’t take six months. Good things come to those who wait.
