I ordered a couple VMIIs in March . I got them in the middle of October. I liked them So much, I hunted one down for my Government sized 1911s. I couldn't find one for my CZ P-01 though, so since today was the first day of the month I called Sparks to place an order . Got a 55 BN for my Government and a VMII for the P-01. Both in horeshide with shark trim.
