Springfield xdm 5.25 9mm factory holster

I've done alot of research on the springfield 5.25 9mm. I've recently purchased the 5.25 9mm. I love the gun, however, the holster, pardon me, sucks. The first time shooting it, I had 10 rounds in the magazine, put it in the holster that came with the gun, fired the 10 rounds. Came back to the table to reload and noticed a scratch on the slide near the end, left side. Not bad, but noticeable for shooting it the first the first time. I was not wearing pants that had any metal parts, for example levis. I am a woman and noticed the holster was sitting slanted on my hip. I called Springfield and they they have had alot of complaints about the holster. Noone, springfield, safariland, blade tech,. dawson precision do not have a holster specifically for the 5.25 9mm in production. Whoever says the factory holster that comes with the gun is great is full of it unless it specifically does not fit a womans frame. I had to send the slide back to springfield, that's how bad the damage was, to have them refinish the slide.

I have been using the Factory holster for USPSA matches, since it's a fast holster with passive retention. It's not my favorite, but it's faster then the Blackhawk Serpa I also have. Do you have the BiTone or Black XDM Slide? I could see how the factory holster could screw up the finish on a black model, especially if a piece of junk got in there with the gun.

Look up the DAA PDR Holster. It supposedly fits. Blade Tech is about to release one that will be available early next month.

Hi,

Look at comp-tac.com for a holster. I bought the straight no cant paddle for my 5.25 9mm. It is fast and works well. I use it for USPSA.

Hi,

Yup, great holster. It makes it really easy to tune the holsters grip by loosening or tightening any of the 3 clamping lugs and it stays that way.

I liked so much that I bought one for my Springfield RO 1911 too. Still waiting for that one to ship. It was ordered Monday.

Blade-Tech makes their standard OWB holster (with and without drop and offset attachment, RH and LH configurations) specifically for the XDM 5.25. Their website usually isn't up to date, so its best to give them a call and order directly.

Holster for 5.25 9mm

Thanks everyone for your responses! I contacted safariland again, and they gave me a release date of 2/6/2012 for the holster specifically for the sprinfield 5.25 xdm 9mm. I had already ordered the holster from blade tech, but have not received it yet. Will let everyone know when I receive it how it is!
