Default Holster Jackpot - Milt Sparks

While picking up the 640-1 today I looked through the holster bin. Apparently someone really didn't value or like their Milt Sparks leather. I found 4 total holsters, each priced at $20 a piece. I didn't know what they were for, but knew the cross draw holster would fit my newly acquired 64-2 snub.

From left to right. 1911 Billboard fits perfect in the summer special, jackpot on the first holster. Second one is a small frame auto SS, Sig 938 feels right at home. Jackpot on number two. The third holster is marked 696, the 64-2 and 66-4 fit great in this one. The last holster is a little loose for the 2 inch, the 4 inch 66 fits great. I think its a 2 1/2 to 4 inch K/L frame holster.

Here are some pics any help identifying these would be a huge help. I paid $80 OTD for all four, seemed like a no brainer.

Judging by the flutes on the last one, could it be for the 696 as well?

I will guess with you.
Left is a Summer Special rough side out for 1911.
2nd is also Summer Special. Can't make it out but thought it said
something about Detective?
3rd is a Hackathorn Special for a 696.
4th I agree also for 696 or similar the 1.5" refers to belt loop.
I'm not much help, but fun to guess.

Nice find. I usually find junk in those bins.

There was one shop in the Burgh where I picked up several Milt Sparks holsters that way................ just add them to your " BIG Box-O-Holsters"..... then start looking for a gun to go with them.


FYI a 1911 holster will also generally work for a Browning HP................

FWIW; many of my my MS holsters are older and not so tightly boned (like the small on in the pictures)..... I'll mark them (with a Sharpie) with the gun make/model on the inside of the belt loop.

Awesome deal, some guys have all the luck...! The 1911 SS is horsehide. I've got a couple just like it, for other guns. Very nice holster. Hard to beat a MS holster.

Not sure if the small SS is horse hide, or not. It's a little different shade, so I'm not sure. Compare the stiffness and thickness to the 1911 SS. Horse hide is stiffer, and a little thinner and than cow hide.
