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.
